Good song, but sounds a bit boring past the first minute, especially after after listening to The Essence Of Silence. I'm sure it'll be better in the context of the full album.
The orchestrations and choirs are really good tho.

Still not warming to the new Epica songs, musically its ok but I don't like Simone's vocals very much. Very meh feeling with this.

Love it! Really stoked on this new material after the lackluster Requiem. It's true the vox are a little wierd on those verses but after a bar I got used to them so not bad at all and damn those orchestrations are great and the song structure is fantastic. Hope to see a music video for this song.

I thought Requiem had several solid songs on it, I'm not sure what people's issue with it really was.

As for the two new songs... I think musically they are nice, but they don't really have the addicting melodies that Epica songs typically have... instead they are just kind of... and I hate to use this word... generic.
