Staff review by
As somebody who takes the utmost care not to stray into the symphonic genre on most occasions, I looked upon Serenity as a rose in a minefield when I discovered War Of Ages in the 2013 MS Awards. It's a pleasure to have the band reappear on my radar with Codex Atlanticus, a delightful reassurance that no genre entirely lacks appeal, even to those utterly bored with the concept.

The Perfect Woman = roxette (listen to your heart) ... weak album, just "Iniquity, Reason, Fate Of Light" power song :/ .... But nice lyrics on this album ... nothing else...I prefer this lyrics in a power metal band ...not like Death & Legacy , for that reason, i put 7

Hopefully will arrive tomorrow. All songs I've heard so far sound great.
So many chips on the world's shoulder. Low on ketchup.

Consistent but nothing astounding.

Had time to listen to it properly and its terrible. Their worst by a mile. The song writing is the main problem. Very weak, no power. Some tracks make me cringe. Sail sounds like some country track.

I've given this a second chance and it's a grower. Not immediately catchy, but it's solid and I keep going back to it. So that says something.

It's not terrible, but really... they've lost it since 2008's Fallen Sanctuary

Not a bad album but gets boring after a few listens. Similar to their previous albums but without the energy... I would give it a 7 and I'm being nice...
