I voted 85, this is a really good album IMO, as good as Demise but in a different way. Appareantly this review was done on the latest version of this album, I have the original MCD that only contains five tracks.

My version has 5 songs as well, I gave it a 40 because without the strong melancholy that was not present on this album, there isn't too much left...

I took it out of the shelf again, and it's indeed better than I remembered. I bought the album quite a time ago and I was rather disappointed that it did not sound like Demise, and moved on to the other records I purchased. The first trask still isn't that good, but the rest has a rather firm feeling of melancholy. The album overall is very good, and I'll make it 70. Some very nice solos and riffs are to be found here.

I knew it! It could not have been that low... :D

We are all humans and we all must have felt this thing called melancholy. Some even think it is elegant and, therefore, beautiful.

I think in the latter you perfectly worded about all BM I listen to, and to which this release is an example. I do not think I recall having read a better review on this site.

Thanks Misha. Means a lot coming from you, as I am sure you are much mroe versed in this music than I. I guess it was somewhat of a personal review, I felt a little exposed sharing a bit mroe feelings with the group. Funny enough how the review came about too. I listened to the album pretty much non-stop for a weak, but it was time to write I put on some other melancholic music, not BM, that I am a little bit more used to. And it just helped the thoughts to flow.
I know you always put feelings in your reviews, I tend to shy away from it, as that style almost invades my privacy.
