I love the touches of middle eastern music with their songs,it makes them the masters of a much underpopulated musical landscape.there are other artists working in similar areas,bands like Melechesh,Bilocate and Myrath to name a few.It's a very magical and otherworldy sound,a spiritual metal that crosses over into the world of guys bashing loud guitars and this time they took a slightly simpler more laid back approach.It's still epic and has orchestras but seems a bit more personal and delicate at the same time.The expanded version has a nice documentary and an exclusive track and two different versions of album tracks,and is packaged in a nice book style digipack that suits the artwork better.If you want to be seranaded a bit more and be less battered by a metal band,they can help you.

I follow Orphaned Land since the beginning and i enjoy very much their early works, but i lost touch with them in the middle of their path, getting reconected with their previous album THE NEVER ENDING WAY OF ORWARRIOR, wich is probably my favorite Orphaned Land album.
All is One is a grower, and i enjoyed it more each time that i listened to it, despite that, the feeling that i had about the orchestral arrangements didnt changed, and for me it could be a better album if it was more raw and more harsh.
Favorite tracks: All is One, The Simple Man and Fail.

and he said he likes it. I have listened it at some points and i do admit, it's not really my thing, however, it's okay, so i wouldn't say no if somebody wanted to listen to it in a crowded place or anything. I think it's okay... as long as daddy is happy, I'm happy too. :)
