Guest review by

I was expecting this album for a long time, being really anxious about a possible come-back. And this year, Mr. Brennare and his company came to rehearse just for old time's memories. Things went good; they began working on a new album. This "Black Brick Road".

In a way, it brings something new. I was wondering how a new Lake of Tears album would sound like, mainly after the release of "The Neonai" album. Well, for those of you who know that album, I must say it sounds a bit like that. But not exactly. I remember the day after the first listenings of Black Brick Road. I wake up in the morning and I said that this last album sounds more like "A Crimson Cosmos". For sure, there are some moments where this album resembles of Crimson Cosmos. Well, I was in doubt reading on a site that they played Boogie Bubble in the beginning of their gig at Sweden Rock, this summer. What was the explanation then? The answer is up to anyone.

The one and only Lake of Tears is back again, finally.
It's now two years ago the chocking and terrible news about the decision Lake of Tears took, to split up, and after two years of sorrow, a fantastic news reached us, Lake of Tears are back, and now it have happen, they are really back, and their new album is out too, can it be better?
