I remember when I first heard this album. I had just gotten loads of new music on my PC, mainly power metal, and Falconer - Falconer was part of it. My expectations were up in the air, seen how highly I already though of the second Facloner album, Chapters From A Vale Forlorn (check my review here). I listened to it expecting some amazing guitar work and stark theatrical vocals. Fast, yet varied, drumming and catchy texts with deep meanings. A soundscape which would take me back a few hundred years ago, to the time when knights fought for honour and princesses, when the church and the kings ruled with an iron fist, when the farmers were fored to labor for their loders, when nature was still green and the sky still a clear blue. I expected an album with both great talent and great epicness. High expectations thus; They were fulfilled.

Rating: 10 From the song "Mindtraveller" until "Lord Of The Blacksmiths" the album is specially awesome. "Mindtraveller" is simply god, and "Royal Galley" is pure love, outstanding =). The first two songs are very good too.

Rating: 10 There's not many flaws you can find here. To me, it's perfect. I listened to it again today, just to remember the good times.

Rating: 10 Listening to it again (new album coming), ans this album is amazing.

Lyric, Epic, Fast, Folk and of course POWER.

Great singer. Only reserve, the production.

  And this, my sons, is how power metal is done. One of the best power metal album I've heard in forever.

  One of the few albums I would give an 11 if such a thing was possible

If you like this you'll also like Wuthering Heights I imagine. Great folk power!

Wtf?! Same here... I just caught myself NOT turning it off after 1 minute, which is what I do with most power metal stuff.

I must admit I can listen to this as it's tolerable, especially for power metal. I guess some parts are still cheesy, but overall the vocals aren't bad at all. This is going on my list for sure, thanks to R'Vannith (he recommended this one, along with loads of other power metal albums).
