Yup....that's a ballad
Metal Invader - 22.03.2013 at 23:56  
And boring one imo!
Bad English - 23.03.2013 at 01:09  
I am happy I was watching this shit before going to sleep, so boring, I will defenetly sleep werry well this night

Ugh... That is a very poor ballad, and just a poor song in general. Only the godawful "Symphony Of Life" manages to be worse in the Avantasia discography. Hopefully the rest of the album will be better....

Didn't watch the video but I did enjoy the song...

Ey, the song it´s not that bad.

Dunno who the girl is, but shes awful. The song itself isn't that bad, but she ruins it for me. I did find it amusing how they were saying "While I sleepwalk in the rain" while it was snowing in the video...

Even without the female vocalist, the song is a bit mundane and non-descript musically. It's not overtly terrible, but it's a throwaway track really, not memorable at all. The female vocals do elevate it to being an awful track rather than simply a mundane track though!

Tobi has penned much better ballads in the past, both with Edguy, and with Avantasia.

Wooooow...this is just a pile of shit...no wonder its a single

i love almost all those "cheesy" ballads Tobias wrote before, but this one is just bad...or if this shall be called "good", then "What Kind Of Love" (which i really enjoy) must be proclaimed godlike...

Don't worry, this is the very worst 4 minutes of the album. The rest of the songs are much better and Where Clock Hands Freeze almost sounds like "Old Avantasia"

Sasha looks like he is trying to squeeze out a particulaly stubborn turd rather than play the guitar.

So delete this song from the album and it will be MUCH better like I did with "Lost in Space" from The Scarecrow? Got it! Thanks for the advice!

Worst Avantasia's song ever! That was dreadful!
PocketMetal - 26.03.2013 at 18:51  
I didn't notice how much this song sucks while I listened to the album
KaoticKraker - 27.03.2013 at 07:04  
I don't get why Tobias doesn't just come out and say he doesn't want to do metal anymore. He's ruining everything with his ridiculous ballads!

I think it's the same singer, Cloudy Yang.

It is, which probably explains a lot.

I thought after the Wicked Symphony it can only get better, but I guess I was wrong...
