Having checked out Rick Altzi singing, I think my hopes have actually gone up for this album. I was originally VERY skeptical about him, as I was very fond of Jorn's voice, found DeMeo didn't really do a good enough job at replacing him and didn't like the Thunderstone track someone threw around back when he first joined the band, but I was pleasantly surprised after hearing him in At Vance. He's not Jorn, but I think he's going to feel more at home with Masterplan than DeMeo was and I can't wait to see what he brings to the table with Masterplan.

I don't like his voice. It's an okay album, didn't find anything I like so much...

7.5 rating for this album?? Ok i wouldn't have given much higher myself, but this album surely kicks the previous ones ass, big time. Don't get me wrong, i'm a fan of Jorn, but Time to be King was a disaster. This album is much better, i am not impressed by the vocals though.

I've always liked Masterplan, but this was just lackluster. Annoying vocals as well! MK II was far superior and filled with life.

Not bad but waaaay too generic.

It´s a cool CD and has it´s moments, but im sure the band will never reach the level that they´ve reached, in the first two records.

The past is the past and Masterplan will be remembered for they had their days of glory. This album could have been pretty good if not for a) Rick Altzi b) atrocious production.
