A concise review, but perhaps someone should have proofread it?

I've listened to it a couple of times and I think even there is a big amount of quality there are things missing. Perhaps I dont get along too much with Amaranthe's voice..

Anyway it is the best thing Tolki has done lately, taking in mind it is one hundred years light from Destiny or Episode from Stratovarius..

Yes. Quality stuff here, but I got bored with it quickly. I don't know, guess I'm just not in the mood for this kind of music now. Or maybe Avantasia did this stuff better years ago.
Either way, I'm glad to see Tolki can still write interesting music, unlike that Symfonia borefest.

The last song with Michael Kiske has some of the best vocals I have ever heard. It is easily the highlight of this album and a great ending to a great album. I agree, Elize's vocals have never really impressed me. They lack character IMO, but that is a small issue in this masterpiece of an album.
