What do you do when you enjoy and want to promote an album that you know is flawed? Let me just start by saying "I really like it." So even when I describe why I think it was swallowed up by the competition, know that I found its positives to outweigh the negatives. But it's a harsh world out there for competition.

The track "One chance" is sooooo good! and from then onwards, the album goes pretty strong. The first half wasn't as exciting though =/

Love this album! It was a nice surprise to hear from Kelly "Sundown" Carpenter and Magali Luyten on this. They're the best parts!!

Does this album seriously feature five primary vocalists?

Léo Margarit and Kristoffer Gildenlöw? Carpenter and Luyten? How did I miss this?

It's kinda like a Star One/Ayreon sort of thing. They don't all sing leads on every song. They all have like "roles" in each piece.

Basically, not your thing

Ah, I thought it was more of a Van Canto thing.

Either way... not my thing.

Maybe it's about obsessions.

I'm just playing this for the first time. The guy on the cover looks a bit like Roy Khan

Edit: Almost finishing my second listen, and my, this is awesome. Every time Magali sings, I get goosebumps. I can't believe that woman's voice, she's so effin' metal.

Edit2: Okay, this record needs some pimpin'.

She's the sole reason I'm checking this out.
AFAIK Magali never left Virus IV, they just haven't yet released the 2nd album.
