Both Élan and Sagan, despite having some interesting moments, both appear quite pale and forgettable. "Oh, what was going on in Élan? I can't remember" sort of song.
I like Floor's voice enough (never been a fan of her) but the music is quite meh, complexity does not always necessarily mean being well-done, at least to my ears.

Elan is good, but played a bit too safely, just a (really catchy) popish song. Hoping for some metal on the full album.

I saw new video
I wont judge album from this video, but I told Floor Jansen can save this band whit 1-2 albums most unless they wont change sound
This song has some ''catchy'' lyrical vocal parts, and tunes as well, but same time it should be heavier, compare whit 1th video ever ''Ekvenpath'' and 1th album, I don't know
Well it will be better as last Tarja Turunen and both Annete Olzon albums, but ...band is getting older
and million times I have said people like band name not music what band plays ... and yes ''Angels Fall First'' are band best album, followers cant even be close ,
but I wont judge this before time, I have a feeling it will be good (for todays standards)

It might just be Troy's pipes, but the title track feels like a hangover from Tuomas's Scrooge album. "Sagan" shows way more promise.

Floor's as impeccable as you'd expect.

This single sucks!Not because it's popish,it sucks even by pop music standard!It's just pale and boring....
Hope it's the worst song of the album.

The melody played by Donockley is very catchy, so I have to disagree.

It's catchy. Nothing more nothing less. Rest of the album better be more bombastic.

Maybe it's just not my type,I've listened to the single 5-6 times but still find it difficult to recall that molody...
But I have to agree that the bonus song Sagan has pretty catchy melody.

Someone said "pale and boring" and I agree 100%. Not bad, not too this or too that. Just... pale. Let's have some bright colors on the record.

Got to admit that Elan is a bit boring, but Sagan is actually pretty good. Would have fitted perfectly on Over the Hills and Far Away IMO. It's not perfect, but I think it's got something special that I find the two latest albums lacked.

I like both the songs.
Vocal is great compositon too. For me the first one even more remembarable than second one. And I do not care that there is no solo on that songs.

BTW for me that EP sounds like Wishmaster continuation.
