Staff review by

Milena: After the departure of their legendary vocal powerhouse Roy Khan, Kamelot had a difficult task of picking out someone equally talented and charismatic to replace him, and the general consensus is that they couldn't have picked a better person than Tommy Karevik, the outstanding vocalist of Seventh Wonder. He didn't come to steal the show (to my slight annoyance - imagine if he went all out for this!) but to provide vocal continuity without sounding like a Roy clone, and to contribute in writing as well, for it was his ingenuity for coming up with lyrics and vocal melodies that landed him the job.

Guest review by

"There's a pain within, that I can't define. There's an empty space, where your love used to shine" So, Roy has left, and there is one big hole left in each and every one of us. Well, at least he is alive, thankfully unlike in the lyrics above. Yet, every true Kamelotian feels the same. At least there wasn't some mass hysteria like Nightwish's 2005 case.

  So far I like it, and I'm excited to listen to it everyday. Torn is my favorite for now.
Still nowhere near the Fourth Legacy which is my favorite Kamelot album...

  I really like this record! Kamelot shows that even without Khan they can make a masterpiece! Tommy did an amazing job as their new singer both studio and live! I am really exited to see what the future will bring. Kamelot Forever!

Rating: 9 Beautiful album. Everything about it, the musicianship, songwriting, production is just awesome. I fell in love with the first listen. But honestly The Black Halo will always be my favorite (listening to it on repeat right now )

Rating: 8 Good one, much better than Ghost Opera and Poetry For The Poisoned. Tommy was a good choice, he sounds like a young Roy.

Rating: 7 Not a bad album. Tommy Karevik sounds almost exactly liek Roy Khan so one can say that Kamelot followed in the steps of Iced Earth. Well, with the exception that Iced Earth managed to write some powerful songs to let the new singer shine and I can't say the same about Kamelot. Truly, they have some great melodies and catchy choruses but it's still nothing compared to "Ghost Opera" and earlier records. Hopefully they will be able to rejuvenate on the next album.

Rating: 7 Really good, but I miss the epic sound of Karma.
