As stated in the title of this review, the two core things in this album are the guitar solos and the vocals, all nine vocalists for that matter. Magnus Karlsson is a great multi-instrumentalist, his guitar work is phenomenal on the album and almost every song has a perfect guitar solo which range from poignant to epic. The vocals (all nine) including Magnus range but most are brilliant clean vocalists who deliver some powerful driving ballads or just straight-rockers. Russel Allen is the first singer as he takes on the title track "Free Fall" one of the strongest tracks, Magnus takes on "Heading Out, Ready or Not and On Fire" which are placed evenly around the album while other guest vocalists such as David Readman and Mike Andersson hold the reigns (I mention them specifically because they sing on the other two strongest tracks "Us Against the World" and "Dreamers and Hunters" which closes the album. The production is finesse with every instrument perfectly clear and concise. I will say that it does have some just OK tracks on here like "Stronger" and "Our Time Has Come" but despite some flaws the sound of the band/Magnus + guests is strong, clear and a joy to listen to.

Anyone who liked Magnus Karlssons work on the Allen/Lande or Bob Catley albums should enjoy. Very impressive with an impressive list of special guests, and the solos are outstanding!

This is probably the best melodic metal album for many a year. Fantastic guitar player,producer and vocalist . He only sings on three tracks which I think are the most enjoyable and gets his mates to do the rest.

Yes, excellent album! Feels like a sort of theme running through it - songs about survival, desperation, world breaking down, us against the world, staying strong against all odds etc - with a lot of power and heart, but never going over the top or being overblown. All the songs and vocalists are very good and the music and melodies are too. Well done!
