Very good, flows better than part 1. Heavier, rich, somehow between Christ.0 and The Seraphic Clockwork.
Vision 14 is hell of a song.

What is that good on this mediocre album? I don´t understand it, I tried it but there are many bands sound like this or better -_- It is not bad but also nothing special up to me

Vanden Plas are great artists, but at the same time a good example of being a talented artist won't make you a good song writer either. This album compared to SOME other melodic ones that came out in 2015 is mediocre at best. It didn't make me wanna sing along, none of the melodies stuck in my head...it's just another Vanden Plas album with very few good moments (the middle part of Vision 14teen for example), but overall out of musical ideas.

Agreed. Wonderful "album." and one of my all time favorites from them.

The problem is that a lot of new fans flocked to the previous album, some even comparing them to Kamelot, which is ridiculous if you understand what Vanden Plas is.
Old time fans seem to be keeping a bit quiet about these two albums, and that makes sense. The albums are more along the lines of a two piece musical. Musicals are what the band focus the majority of their careers and time to, and they are not concerned whatsoever about producing a mere "melodic album." They have always been about expressing whatever it is they find inspiring, I mean seriously, "Jesus Christ Superstar?"

They hardly even fit the description of a metal or progressive metal band. It somehow makes more sense to call them a group of musicians, though it is entirely true that they do produce astonishing albums.

These two albums are certainly not quite the same as Clockwork or Christ 0 in flow or scope, but they are very, very good if not some of their best work when it comes to vocal melodies, guitars, and keyboards.

This album is absolutely fantastic from beginning to end, my favorite along with Seraphic Clockwork. 10/10 for me in all areas.

For long time fans of the band who, like I, were not as impressed with Chronicles 1 compared to Seraphic Clockwork and Christ 0, I encourage you to listen to this one at least several times all the way through. I avoided it until now and really regret it.
