Rating: 6 Not excited with this one.. While 'The Wolves Die Young' was a promising start to the new album, this one is rather a letdown.
Lyrical concept and instrumentation is rather boring and style uncertian..
I'm still optomistic about this album though, not all songs in an album need to be top quality work.

  To soft and the lyrics are silly with the expected Sonata musical formula it's just "meh". Hoping for better on the rest of the album.

Rating: 9 I guess I'm in the minority when I say I loved this one. Tony's vocals feel really solid. The guitar could have been mixed better. For those disappointed, I think they may have just put this one out to have a catchy single and the rest of the album should have songs with more depth.

Not really about depth for me. The lyrics aren't what bothers me, it's an ok premise for a song. it's that it's slow, it's not catchy for me, and it's written fairly simply. Not that Sonata were ever a super weird avante garde progressive act or anything, but this is simple compared to their first albums, which were truly both speedy and catchy. "Victoria's Secret", "Wolf and the Raven", "8th Commandment", "Kingdom for a Heart"... all Sonata at their best.
