2.0 out of 5 stars No change in 4 years., 17 Jan 2014
This review is from: Design Your Universe (Audio CD)
Got this album for Christmas a few years ago. After really liking 'The Divine Conspiracy' I requested this album without looking into it beforehand. Wish I had now. Waste of money for the person who bought it for me.

So I listened to it all the way through a couple of times and was sadly disappointed. A couple of solid good tracks include Resign to Surrender (minus the spoken bit), the last minute of Unleashed where Simone's vocals induce goosebumps, Burn To A Cinder and White Waters.

The rest of the album is just....meh.

Recently listened to this album again (January 2014). Thought I'd give it another chance. I really really want to like this album but there are just too many little details that ruin the whole thing for me.

1. The whole Freedom theme. Outdated, preachy and boring.
2. Spoken passages? Nooooo! Music or singing please, no speaking moments!!
3. Martyr of the free world. The weakest track after the pointless The Price Of Freedom
4. Too much grunting vocals, not enough Simone
5. The freedom thing again. I just don't like it.
6. Bonus track Incentive. Certainly not worth the extra pounds.

Never have I found more disappointment in an album. A killing album for me in never looking into Epica again, just like Imaginaerum (whatever the spelling) from Nightwish.

Avoid.
