Guest review by

I'm afraid this won't help me winning much sympathy, but I have to be honest: I never really liked Angra. And that always seemed strange to me, because they seem to represent one of the biggest worldwide expressions of power metal. When I listened to the album which should be, according to the ratings, their masterpiece, Temple Of Shadows, my expectations were sky-high. But, despite repeated listens, I couldn't go further than an unexpected 6. I didn't find anything particularly bad, I just couldn't notice anything better than average. Now, you can freely hate me.

Okay, I can see your point but as you said, it's a matter of taste. I can also say that the production is a let down.

"Lease of Life" is one of the most beautiful ballad written by Angra. However the album as awhole is really average except from some songs here and there. The beginning it's really uninspired IMO.

Obviously a more progressive effort than any other albums by the band, Angra's latest album succeeds in most places yet slightly fails in some. Although the guitar solos are admittedly brilliant and sometimes even flying off the richter scale, they can be at time a bit uninspired, as on 'Weakness of a man'. The vocals are pretty good though, and the songwriting compositions really work well as usual.

This album is really magnificent, musically to say the least. Edu had lost some of his higher vocal capabilities but the songs are really amazing...
