Mercyful Fate's second post-reunion era album TIME is a solidly constructed collection and well performed. My
earliest impression of this album was that it was very well crafted, but somehow lacked something inexplicable that
made their earlier records so special. I have come to respect TIME for its consistency and I rarely choose to
listen to any of their records beyond this point. It marked the end of a creatively potent era for Mercyful Fate.
