I am really looking forward to this album. I loved The Beginning of Times. Actually, I have loved their last three or four albums, so I have high hopes for this.

I enjoyed The Beginning of Times a bit, not as much as the previous three releases, but whatever. I'm really looking forward to what they'll come up with for this album. Should be another awesome release. Can't wait.

Can't wait! Though Beginning of Times isn't the best album ever, I bet they won't disappoint us in this next. And I hope there are female backing vocals in this one too. =]
