At this point Evergrey appear to be in a comfort zone where they are unable to produce a mediocre album. Are they capable of releasing a grand album though?

Great album! Has heavy and soft moments, both working out pretty well together, the heavy songs relying on groovy riffs, and the soft songs on the catchy atmospheric keyboard melodies, all tied up with insane solos and the amazing vocal from Tom. This album is much better than their last two efforts to say the least!

Approved, much better than The Atlantic which was a complete blind spot for me. Maybe 1-2 tracks are off the mark, the rest is from good to amazing.

I like it. The band continues to deliver really solid and a great records, mainly since the return of some of their original members. "Hymns for the Broken", for me, is still the best record since the band returned to the right path, but this one is still a very good piece of music. Congrats to them.

A very consistent and balanced album. haven't been able to find any standout songs till yet, but overall it all seems tightly knit and cool, catchy power metal.

When you listen this band you think old one was better, but in end of album you understand that this was good. He always finds new ways to somehow make this new album, every new album. There is something what band has, some songs are emotional.

Stories is a standout on a consistently likeable tracklist. Evergrey are a band I'll generally give each album a listen of and not feel much inclination to return to despite thinking that they're good albums, and I can see this being the same, but they are a really proficient band

I felt like I was listening to a 90s rock band, something like 3doors down. It felt really nostalgic. Some of the songs are really catchy.
