Some people might've thought this album would be a disaster, after the departure of two of the band members who participated on some of the best albums of the band. Have they lost their spark? Is it all coming to an abrupt end? Well, the album isn't a disaster. But it isn't monumental either; it is competent. This is a less edgy version of Evergrey, to say the least.

I'm skeptical but I want to listen to it of course, Evergrey was always a very interesting band for me. Their last album was a huge improvement.

So let's see how it goes with all the core changes inside the band.

I'm very skeptical too, just been going downhill since In Search of Truth and Recreation Day...

What I heard from the samples wasn't very promising...

Agreed sadly, if money is tight I probably won't buy it as there's a lot of good releases next month :/

In A search of truth still seems a lot better to me at the moment =/

Great in the middle, less rock, more prog metal. But as with all their releases post In Search of Truth it's not consistently good. Low 8 is fair...

First half of this album is really good, then it becomes a bit boring... Until the last track, which is again a killer. Solid effort overall, but nothing spectacular.
