Doing progressive power successfully has got to be one of the greatest feats in melodic metal. Either one of the genres is not being nearly represented enough in the mix, so the title is misleading, or they're merged in such a way that both the uplifting harmonies of power metal and alien qualities of prog metal get left out of the equation, leaving us with a boring, sterile product. Royal Hunt is one of the many bands that failed doing this the right way.

Difficult album to judge. Love the old castlevania style and Cooper. Need time to enjoy it : )

Best song as the reviews also say, is obviously "Half Past Loneliness".

The good old melodies and sound! DC Cooper is still a GOD! The best album since Paradox!

Feel the freedom of body and mind
I am starting my journey, I'm drifting away with the wind
I go"

I've listened to it already 2 times. Nothing "catches" me. Need to give it one more try.
Can't say it's a bad album -- it's good, but not spectacular...

I wasn't quite thrilled with "X" so this is a nice change or better to say a return in the right direction. And return of the singer is a great thing, Boals just doesn't fit that good...

... For years I have traveled in coldness,
But my heart is warm as the darkened sun above me...
Nothing can never take away
What I've seen with these tired eyes
