I'll admit it: I initially got into Seventh Wonder - as, I suspect, many people have done - just to check how the new Kamelot singer, Tommy Karevik, sounded. I first listened to Mercy Falls and, fell in love with this Scandinavian combo, decided to try out the previous releases, Become and Waiting In The Wings. These two, especially the second one, absolutely didn't disappoint the high expectations I had.

This is one of the best prog metal albums I have ever heard. So creative, so much riffage, and the vocals are incredibly good. Oh and great songwriting.

This is the first album i have heard with Tommy Karevik on vocals (I heard Become before this), and he completely blows the previous singer out of the water! I was introduced to this band last year (right around the time Great Escape was released, ironic that that album was the one I listened to last). This is truly an excellent album, not my favorite (that is reserved for Great Escape), but I highly recommend everyone check this out now!

Great. Still prefer Mercy Falls, but this one is simply great too. "Not An Angel" in something out of this world, just perfect.
We could be so much more than we are. Stop.

Karevik is a Monster. It's always a pleasure to hear him sing.

That might be my favorite Seventh Wonder's album alongside Mercy Falls, at least it's the one containing most of my favorite Seventh Wonder's song. Tommy is excellent, this man is a god.

Took me some time to start listening to them. I got to know about them once Tommy joined Kamelot for Silverthorn back in 2012 but never started to listen to them apart from a few youtube videos. So happy to have heard this as this is exactly what my taste is in music. Complex, beautiful, dramatic, epic with an exceptional voice. Tommy's singing brings it up a notch, he's not just that great prog/power singer, he is exceptional and somehow unique in how he uses his voice. The type of his vocals might be similar to some famous power metal names but the usage is pretty unique and on spot. You feel like a professional is singing, not a garage band gone famous singer like in many instances.
