생각했던것만큼 막장은 아니었지만 다음 앨범에서 얼마나 더 변해버릴지 두려운 앨범.
Tristania 특유의 그 어둡고 찝찝하다고 해야하나... 그랬던 느낌이 좀 사라지고 전체적으로 발랄해진것 같습니다.
하지만 비베케의 대타로 들어온 Mary는 생각보다 괜찮더라구요. 트리스타니아가 여기서 더이상 삽질을 안한다면 오히려 Sirenia보다도 더 나을것같습니다.

가장 좋았던 노래를 꼽자면 단연 "Illumination"... 그 다음으로 꼽자면 "Protection"이랑 바이올린 소리가 인상깊던 "Amnesia"...
하지만 나머지 곡들은 들을땐 좋아도 이게 트리스타니아 노래라는걸 떠올리면 좀 슬퍼지더군요.

뭐... 11번 트랙만큼은 인상 깊었다.

najlepší album od skupiny Tristania. Perfektný otvárak Year of the rat
level   (84/100)
의외로 차분해서 만족은 했습니다. 건질 곡도 있고 뭐... 여기까진 나쁘진 않았음. 하지만 Østen Bergøy 까지 빠졌나본데 이후의 행보가 불안하다는 점에는 이견이 없네요.

방향성을 찾아가나 싶었더니 이도저도 아닌 앨범을 내놓았다.. 전임 보컬 Vibeke가 너무 그립다..
