Decent album but nothing compared to INto The Mirror Black.
And Mustaine's production dosn't do this one any justice either.

I think the production works fine, even if the album itself doesn't stand up to the sophomore

I find it to be way too thin. Live the songs sounded so much better at the time with a fuller sound.

I prefer this one over Into The Mirror Black, but only just. The 'White Rabbit' cover does it for me every time, probably my favourite cover ever.

Really, really superb album. I always kinda struggled to get into Dane's stuff with Nevermore, but here he sounds absolutely perfect.

Yeah, but Dane doesn't even sound like himself here....his style, which was much more solidified on the next Sanctuary record, is an acquired taste, for sure.

I don't anticipate the new one sounding anything like this, it was a one time affair and has a quintessential US power sound that'll be hard to recapture.
Dane does a superb job here, who else could nearly outdo Grace Slick?!
