    I hope it will sound more like "April Rain" than "We are the others". More metal, less pop

    They will have to go a long way to regain my interest. Some pretty amazing guests, like the first album, will help.

    I found We Are The Others much more consistent than April Rain; parts of April Rain were, in my opinion, far too, as much as I hate the word, pompous.
    Lucidity had great atmosphere from start to finish.
    Looking forward to the new release a lot.

    It seems Charlotte is getting more fond of dystopian themes.
    I enjoyed "We are the others". Yes it was poppier, but songs were still catchy. But I hope for more metal approach too, also more complex songwriting.
    there is nothing left to die for...

    I've always been quite fond of these guys - its good to see Martijn hasn't missed out on a career after he had to leave WT - but a return to some honest-to-god symphonic metal (i.e. "The Gathering") would be nice from this album. We Are the Others was perfectly inoffensive but Interlude played like a B-side compilation.

    C'mon Marco!

    Charlotte <3 She looks sick in the cover. Seems the album would be more on the heavy side, judging from the song titles and the whole concept, God I hope I'm not wrong...
