It's better than Maximum Overload. The song WAR! is the biggest highlight imo. I think this is soon going to become one of my favourite DF albums, along with The Power Within and Sonic Firestorm.

Woefully mediocre, even by DragonForce's one-trick pony standards. That tsongLi and Totman did with Babymetal eclipses just about everything on this. The Edge of the World was especially painful.

Not sure I understand the people saying this is better than Maximum Overload... it's not nearly as catchy, and sorry, but that's the measure of how good a Dragonforce album is.

Anyway, the first 7 tracks are all pretty solid, but after that I feel the album really drops off.

This is better than Maximum Overload, they tried something different with 2 tracks and one is pretty good imo (Silence). The other one, Edge of the World, was inspired from Iron Maiden and I think they could have done it slightly better. Overall for me, the key song was midnight madness, loved that song. The album itself is a better listen compared to Maximum Overload, I hope they keep this trend up and mix it up like they did with 2 songs. Also this album is more varied compared to their other albums imo. Recommend it for people to give it more than 1 spin.

I feel that the lyrics are better than M.O, and this album seems more cohesive to me with my 3 times spin.

Maximum overload is better than this.
There are not many melodies and elaborate rhythms like for example "the sun is dead".
But anyway, i like this.

I think they've slowed down.

I think their attempt was to mix it up, I know a few ppl who call them repetitive coz they use the same type of style over and over again, but this is a solid album imo

I just listened to this whole thing. Its actually really good, and I dislike Marc Hudson. But the instrumentation & lyrics are very good. They slowed it down (just a tad) & became way more melodic, with shorter songs. I don't dislike not one song, even the cover songs. Definitely better than Maximum Overload. I'll even say better than Ultra Breakdown & better or equal to Inhuman Rampage, which are my fav from to begin with.
