첫 인트로에서 비교적 강한 포스를 뿜으며 시작된 앨범. 이들도 역시 전작과는 다른 방향으로 컨셉을 잡았다... 핀란드에서의 프록화 경향이 대세인듯하다. 멜로디와 스피드의 비중을 대폭 줄이며 대신 웅장한 파워나 헤비를 내세우고 그나마 감성적인 멜로디를 발라드곡으로 편입시켜버렸다. 6번 Was It Me가 바로 그런 발라드다.

전체적인 트랙들이 멜로디만 다를 뿐 전체적으로 봤을 때 파워/프로그레시브적이라는 느낌이 들었다. 처음 듣자마자 그런 느낌이 들어버렸다...당분간 이런 흐름이 계속될거 같다...

hudobne pokračuje v štýle predošlého albumu, čiže prevažne Heavy Metal doplnený o pasáže Power-u a Hard Rock-u. Zvuk albumu je podarený, obal tiež, ale album celkovo neprekonalo ich dvojku "Feeding the Flames"

처음엔 좀 적응안됐는데 듣다보니 나름 매력적인 앨범
