level   (60/100)
전작들도 기대치에 못미쳤을 뿐만 아니라 이 앨범 덕에 이 밴드에 대한 애정이 사라짐과 동시에 트리스타니아 시절에 빛났던 Morten의 감각 또한 사라졌음을 느낄 수 있었다.

podarené a kvalitne príjemné album. Väčší príklon k gothic metalu podporený výborným spevom Ailyn
level   (75/100)
그냥 무난하게 들을만한 앨범..
level   (50/100)
1, 2집을 충분히 좋아했던 사람들을충분히 할 말 잃게 만드는 앨범이라고 봄. 물론 부정적인 의미로.
level   (52/100)
전작과 다를게 없다. 실망스럽다.
