Very refreshing album compared to the other melodeath crap that was released around this time. Alvestam's vocals are superb here. Can't stop listening to this album after 4 years.

Definitely an amazing album! I had to buy this album a few years ago after seeing "The Illusionist" video on a Metal hammer promo compilation DVD, and it definitely didnt disappoint! Amazing vocals from Christian Alvestam, memorable melodies, great riffs, and some dazzling twin lead guitar work by Jonas Kjellgren and Per Nilsson make this a classic album in its genre.

Although I love all their albums to a degree, this one is the best, and a shining example of melodeath at it's finest.

I prefer this album over Holographic Universe (which is the only other Scar Symmetry album I have).
The sun shines over The Fool...

This was one of my first five extreme metal albums and really peaked my interest in the genre. I'd kill for more like this.
