5.0 out of 5 stars Very good album, 15 Nov 2010

However I was very surprised by the battle system. There are characters you play third person with and others third person, changing was easy and each character had a slightly different feel.
However I can remember nothing about the story... So that was very forgettable...

Having said this what is remarkable about the album is it huuuuge track variation. From the commercial song "Come on" to the tribal intro of "Harvest the Garden" (my personal favourite). It's a real joy just to sit in a chair, eyes closed and soak it up. Of course you can also head-bang to the tracks as well.

Waylon seems to be put to use a lot more effectively this time, using both his… Read more
