I couldn't resist giving this an early listen. To me, some of their best work to date is on this album. That's not to say that I love the entire of album, but it's overall really good. Pretty much all heavy songs, but there are some surprises in there too. For instance, when the organ kicks in at around 4:40 in "When All Is Lost", for me there's a total prog vibe going on. Really reminded me of some Ayreon. I'll be very happy with this CD. I can't wait to own it! Also, I love the sound that Romeo is getting messing around with pitch shifter. That makes for some pretty comical licks =D.
