This should be subtitled "How Stu Block saved Iced Earth"

It seemed like Iced Earth was going into a tailspin following the very underwhelming Something Wicked parts 1 and 2, but somehow they were able to bring themselves up out of the gutter and make something that resembled their best days. Gone are the obnoxious, overblown choral sections, as well the ridiculous need to be as "epic" as humanly possible. Everything's faster, with far more energy and explosiveness to it (some moments are borderline thrash metal), as well as incorporating more melody into the riffs rather than mid-tempoed chugging. Even the slower songs are done better, with at least a smidgen of personality and catchiness in each of them. Stu Block does a typically great job vocally, and while the songwriting isn't necessarily anything new, it's very well done, especially given how past releases had sounded. The shorter length helps things too, with songs finishing just when the ideas run out of steam. Dystopia is a very solid effort, and just may be the band's best since the original Something Wicked This Way Comes.
|3.0 good||Kenneth E. Rathburn CONTRIBUTOR | August 12th 14|
The addition of Stu Block allows Iced Earth to start taking a few steps back onto a once familiar road, but Dystopia ends up feeling like wasted potential. Rather than seeing the band put to full and proper use, this inconsistent collection of tracks has the foundation of functionality without the build of excellence.
|4.5 superb||MaidenUFO | July 20th 12|
A great comeback for Iced Earth, one of the best metal bands from the 90's... THIS ALBUM IS AWSOME! Many excellent songs here like the title track, end of innocence, dark city,anthem, V and specially tragedy and triumph which is THE BEST SONG IN THE ALBUM! EPIC CHORUS! "Time is on our siderWe have prevailedrHumanity's ultimate strugglerHearts and mindsrAre joined in victoryrWe are triumphant end eternalrTime is on our siderWe have prevailedrHumanity's ultimate strugglerHearts and mindsrAre joined in victoryrWe are triumphant end eternal"

Very solid release with an enjoyable performance from Stu Block.
|3.5 great||ManintheBox | March 14th 12|
Great stuff and a good come back! Maybe if I was a fan during their crappier couple of releases I would appreciate this more. Still great album. Reccomended tracks:Dystopia, Anthem, Dark City. and Age of Innocence.
