2.5 averageThomas Michael Morris | September 1st 10

This is a good deal darker and heavier than anything else Kamelot have done. The "epic" title track, which is really only 9:22 minutes of material spread over four tracks, is a bit of a letdown when compared to their other epics such as Memento Mori or the Elizabeth suite, but this is certainly Kamelot's best effort since The Black Halo. Poetry For the Poison boils down to being an epic short of a solid 4 rating.

A lot of people have criticized this album for failing to live up to the standards of epica
and the black halo. while this certianly doesnt reach the epic porportions of those albums
it has good songs and at least shows kamelot is willing to change its sound rather than try
to recreate the black halo simply cause it was the best

has its moments, but still overall a disappointment. The thing that really killed me about this album was that it seemed every songs ending would be a lead in to an awesome bridge....no such luck.

Definately an album that grows on you. At firs I thought it was terrible, but after about 5 more listens I loved t.

It grows on you. @ people rating it low, try listening to it another five times then come back and try and tell me it's not better than you initially thought.

This release didn't have the energy that Kamelot usually had,and they have gotten darker but i dont think it was for the better.rAll in all i would give this a final grade or 4/5. been growing on me too. r
