After the ballad (Reason To Believe) everything goes downhill. The first single was very promising, the second made me think they're on the right track, but when I got the album I could enjoy only the first part of it. The rest seem to be filler after filler. I understand Michael wants to keep the AE sound, but they really should consider letting Jeff step in on some songs with riffs. I'm sure Michael can select or at least inspire himself by some of them. I don't think Jeff is not capable to understand as an artist what the AE sound means or should sound like. When you have such a giant in your band it wouldn't hurt to ask for help if you're out of ideas after 5 - 6 songs.

That's also how I feel about the album. Very strong start, and I also like Dreams Of Retribution, but the other 5 songs of the second half are pretty uninspired. It's still a good album, but it could have been much better if it kept the pace.
