Awesome album. Been stuck in my player nonstop lately.

What a great vocal. But as for the album... a bit too tiring, the production seems to be a bit over the top. my head feels weary after i listen the whole thing.
after a few listens it reminded me of Persuaders early works, that i couldn't swallow even tough they had some good songs.
Anyways - 75/100

I thought it was boring and totally generic... A couple of good songs but, overall, a huge disappointement.
50/100 for me.

This sounds good. Jioti is a great vocalist. I really like what he did on "Defenders Of The Crown".

And Michael Kiske IS overrated! :D

I'm going to listen to this only because Jioti is carrying the vocal duties. Maybe he should apply for the vacant in Lost Horizon :unsure:

EDIT: Listening right now, the production is awful, Jioti sounds incredible though.

The drums. There's way too many treble in the plates, and the double-bass needs more power. Maybe 'awful' was a bit harsh, but it's not good nevertheless.

I hear you... I don't have any problems with it though. Are you listening of MySpace? Because they can ruin it pretty badly for you. That's happened to me an awful lot of times.

LOL, I never listen anything on MySpace, the quality is awful. It's an original release rip by UasH team, high bit-rate.
