I would recommend this metal gem. Well worth the money I paid to own this.
A very good album from Sonata Artica- the first I have. I heard them on Youtube- listening to the song 'The Misery', the wording is beautiful - not as the title would suggest, in that sense; although in another, at a deeper level, its meaning is clear. on the album and it was so beautiful, I had to buy it straight away! An amazing rock sound- enough metal to keep me happy; not to heavy and no screaming or voices needing Strepsils, if you know what I mean! I would recommend this.
I bought this album for my son, and decided to listen to it befor wrapping. I was very impressed. the whole track list cannot be faulted, heavy-but not overwhelming so that even a non rocker can enjoy. If this is the norm for Sonata Arctica I will be borrowing my son's other albums. HIGHLY RECONMENDED !!!!!
