A shame to see you were underwhelmed Zad, but I had to wonder if the constant line-up changing would eventually get to them: this being subpar makes sense.

Was hoping for a little bit of a return to form after the last album they brought out, but I guess it's not to be :(.

I think this is a solid release, but when compared to any of their older albums this definitely is sub-par quality. Nevertheless, I would recommend it to anyone that likes Therion or the symphonic metal genre.

75-80/100 for me


P.S. "Land of Canaan" is such an awesome song.

Yeah, I'd have been hard pushed to score it lower, although there were times that I wanted to. Certainly not a 'shit band', by any means, even now, just a little disappointing.

Lemuria was a tight album.

I think it's the same great album then any from Therion. And i'm listening to them since Beyond Sanctorum.... So all Hail Therion!!!! And for the webmasters, I'm still waiting for your reviews for Therion albums released before Vovin. Thnx.

Picked this up on Tuesday. It's really good. It's still the "new" Therion, but it's solid.

I really like this one actually. I will say it is one of their weakest albums but with that said I love all Therion and still I would give it roughly an 80 + or - some points over time. My biggest issue is that some of the male vocals sound a little odd even by Therion standards.

Because they're extremely operatic, like Les Mis kind of shit. It's definitely different for them.

Unless you're referring to something else. :P
