Guest review by

This album hasn't got a review yet? Seriously, what are prog fans doing on this forum, are they asleep or something? The only thing that separates this album from a cult classic status is its release date.

The concept follows a short period of life of a man who's in a coma. He's dreaming of a town called Mercy Falls, which serves as a metaphor for his subconscious mind. Meanwhile, the actions of his family and the people taking care of him have an impact of what he sees in his sleep - a terrible storm hits Mercy Falls just as the doctors are working on a new procedure which involves the blood of his son... Fifteen songs may seem a bit long, but the story is worth it - it passed in the blink of an eye while I was waiting to discover what caused the dreadful storm and what got him in a coma in the first place.

Rating: 10 I don't usually rate something 10, but this album totally deserves it. How is it possible that only the news about Tommy Karevik and Kamelot made me know this awesome band?

Rating: 9 A very strong concept album indeed. Everyone should check it out asap!

Rating: 9 Pretty awesome band. The strange thing, though, is how cheerful tunes contrast with dark and somewhat decadent lyrics. Listen to "Unbreakable" for example.

  Reminds me of [i]The Human Equation{/i], which is always an awesome thing.

Rating: 6 Pretty ho-hum prog release to me. Nothing genre bending.

  Ok, i thought "The Great Escape" was absolutely marvelous...then i heard that

  Normally, I'm not into prog metal. At all. So, you'd expect me to dislike this, right? Wrong: I actually really enjoy listening to this, as it has some incredible tracks on it and even the stuff I don't like as much is held together perfectly thanks to Tommy Karevik's fantastic vocals. I honestly would struggle to have anything seriously negative about this album!

Rating: 9 Just like Nemo - I'm not usually intro straight prog metal, but this record...damn, it's so good! Keyboards, guitars, bass, drums, vocals! Everything fit really good.
