This album is damn near perfect. I've had it for over a week and every song is still on loop for whenever I want to listen to
music.

Best songs:
Spectres
The Great Mystery
Savior in the Clockwork

The very best of Sammet in eight years.

The bouns tracks are quite good as well. I'd rate them about a 4/5.

The Cross and You is a really great rock track. It doesn't keep the same atmosphere as the rest of the album, so I can see why its a bonus track. No complaints here.

Death is Just a Feeling (Alternate Version) was probably the bonus track I was looking forward to the most since DJF was my favorite track off Angel of Babylon so I was really excited to see what is was. It's just Sammet singing the entire song instead of Jon Oliva, and right away I can tell why they went with Jon Oliva for the lead vocals on the track. It wasn't -horrible- listening to Sammet sing the song, but he definitely wasn't suited for the style of singing it requires. If anything, it's a good look at what would happen with Avantasia if there were no guest vocalists, and Sammet sang every song. Regardless, it's still an interesting track and I won't skip it when it comes up to play, however, I did find it very underwhelming for what I was expecting.

Better than The Metal Opera, not better than The Wicked Symphony.

Very good review, but you might wanna edit "Tracks like ‘The Great Mystery’ and the ten minute epic closer ‘The Great Mystery’ ".

Even though Sammet is a huge charlatan, and most of Avantasia albums are cheesy metal operas, some stuff from this is pretty good

It's also worth mentioning that the guitar work is A LOT stronger and more prominent on this album than the past couple which I know was a complaint of some.
