I loved the first album a lot and have not been able to stop playing it. I liked the NWOBHM feel mixed with thrashy speedy riffs. It was the best album I have heard for a long time, Loved it. I could not wait for this album to come out and have now played it several times, but am still feeling a sense of disappoinment.
Dont get me wrong, it is a good album, but it does not have the speed and the bite of the first album as it rather more song-based. There are a couple of tracks that may have fit in on the first album: 'nightmares', and 'Live for the night', but overall it does not have the fantastic speed and tempo of the first album.
I can tell it is a good album but it does not make me go WOW like the first album. It is also not very NWOBHM, even though some reviews say it is.
More intensity next time guys!!
