    So, Jon Shaffer and his bunch of ever-changing musicians are back in town with release number eleven, after 2011's Dystopia that finally set the bar pretty high, after maybe too many years of... well, not mediocrity, but of music that didn't live up to Iced Earth standards.

    Rating: 6 When listening to this album, I keep thinking that there's just so much untapped potential. I felt like that for the last album with Stu, especially when comparing the awesome tack "Dystopia" to the rest of the album, but even more so in this album as I thought they'd push ice earth to greater heights after spending quite some time together. How frustrating!

    I'm starting to feel the same.

    There are good tracks on this album but a lot feel undercooked. The album also loses momentum very quickly - indeed straight after the pummeling The Culling song.

    Rating: 8 Quite a nice album, in my opinion. It doesn't sound as fresh and exciting as Dystopia, but still have its great moments.

      Does any of you have listened it after it was out?
    I did try 2 times back and forgot, somehow I remember about it via MS awards, (good it was not nominated) anyway ...

    I've listened to it a few times since it came out. It's got a couple of ok tracks like the first 3 songs, If I Could See You and Highwayman but overall it's a bit bland and uninspired. Perhaps the poorest album out of their entire catalogue.

      I loved the title track, so I bought the cd and the rest of it is average at best. There goes $14.99 lol
