I've been listening to rock and metal for almost 40 years now and once in a while an album comes along that completely blows me away. I was originally leant it by a friend and on first listen I thought it was good, complex at times but the singing was excellent and the musiciainship first class. I bought the CD and put it on my MP3 player and started listening to it whilst walking to work. Within a matter of days, I couldn't stop listening to the album. I would play it continuously all day long, sometimes getting through the whole album 5 or 6 times each day. For three whole weeks it is all I played. Even after three months I still listen to it at least once or twice a day, if not more. I have even got my 15 year old son and his friends into it and he is listening to it almost non-stop as well! If I'm not playing it, he is!

The story is very involving, about a small town and a family tragedy. The music is interspersed with spoken passages to enhance the story line (very similar to Queensryche's Operation Mindcrime and Dream Theater's Metropolis Pt 2: Scenes From A Memory, in both feel and complexity). These are done extremely well and are quite moving at times.

There are several instrumental passages which are simply great, the technical prowess of the whole band is just stunning to listen to. The arrangements are spot on and what really shines through for me is that the melody of the song is all important and never sacrificed. It is a perfect blend of guitar, bass, keys and drums and all shared equally.

Then we come to the singing, what can I say! I personally think this is one of the greatest vocal performance I have heard on a metal/rock album. Tommy Karevik has done a first class job throughout the album.

This album is not just great progressive power metal, it also carries a touching story behind the music. This is a concept album which begins with, and is carried by, the underlying theme told by "A New Beginning", which is about a car accident involving a man and his wife. The man falls into a coma and the wife painfully waits for years on end by his hospital bedside for him to wake, with only a glimmer of hope in a risky bone-marrow transplant from their only son. Other songs on the album tell different aspects of the story, either from the viewpoint of the wife, the son, the family or even the comatose patient himself during his "dreamstate". In fact, the story gets somewhat complex as many believe that, during his comatose state, the patient dreams of a place called Mercy Falls (hence the album name) which is a reflection of his broken relationship with his family, and how he constantly tries to escape to return to reality. Sadly, he never gets to as he never manages to find a way out of Mercy Falls and, because the bone-marrow transplant fails, the doctors turn off his life-support machine claiming that the patient was not strong enough to fight the coma and that his brain has been inactive for too long.

The album varies in its musical styling throughout to relate to the ups and downs in the underlying theme behind the music, some parts revealing the great tragedy in all its fullness, whilst others providing some glimmer of hope and raising the spirit.

I was lent this by a friend. I expected it to be a bit pretentious, as concept-type albums can often be. I thought I'd give it a bash. I was amazed! At first I kept expecting that the 'next' track would be inevitably the one where I would start to lose interest or start cringeing. But instead I got drawn in, by the music, the lyrics and the story, until I was lost in the world inside this album. It held me captivated for all of its 76 minutes. A very clever, beautiful achievement by this band. A special cd. Buy it now - and it's worth getting even if you pay a higher price. Lovely artwork on the cd too.

I'm 62 years old, thought I could not really be amazed by something I'd not heard before but Mercy Falls by Seenth Wonder is amazing. Others have written about the quality of the songwriting and the playing so I shall do no more than agree. I have to admit that I lstened hard to the lyrics, and had tears welling up as I listened to Tears for a Father.

Overall a brilliant album.
