And this is too far into the cringe-cheesy side of power metal for me to get into it; BG still remains the standard.

I was kind of disappointed at first, nothing really seemed too memorable. But after a couple listens my opinion changed completely. I thought I would miss some of my favorite guests from past albums (like Jorn and Andre Matos) a lot, but the selection of vocalists for this record turned out great. The guitar work isn’t outstanding, as usual, but the vocal melodies are incredible.

This album is lots of fun! Finally some power metal that isn't cheesy to the point of ridiculousness... the vocals are a bit irksome, but I've heard worse

Another great one from Avantasia. Best tracks are Spectres, Where the Clock Hands Freeze, and Sleepwalking.

Listen to the instrumental version of Sleepwalking on acid and you'll go to another world

Was looking for a slightly less ramdom pick and picked this up after reading this ;-) and despite my current musical cravings, I can honestly say I could get into this. (hell I've alredy researched the band and fully plan on getting their backlog lol.

This was a nice change up for Avantasia, I feel. I was upset when I heard that Jorn and Matos were going to be absent, but the album really did click and there are some very memorable songs on here.
