Kamelot Are Back On Top Again,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Silverthorn (Box Set) (Audio CD)
After the good but flawed effort of Ghost Opera and the bleak depressiveness that was Poetry for the Poisoned, comes Silverthorn with new vocalist, Tommy Karevik from Seventh Wonder.
After the single Sacrimony (Angel of Afterlife) excitement for this album was running high. Unlike Poetry for the Poisoned, this album delivers what the single teased and gave us a grand album. I feel there's only one weak song; Prodigal Son, its good, but it feels too long. If they took the good parts and made it shorter it would be a 9 or 10/10 song like the rest of the album. It is very hard to tell what are the best songs on this album as they are, aside from above, all equally good. I find I like different songs more depending on what I feel like that day. There are a lot of highly praised albums out there but I rarely come across an album that has no filler tracks, this is one of those albums that as a whole is complete in itself, even the weaker track is no where near the level of filler.
The limited edition package is very nice and well worth the price that I paid. Get a neat little poster, storybook and bonus CD with instrumental versions of the album and extra track.
A great package for an album that stands as the peak of their career, along with The Black Halo. Proving Kamelot are reborn again.
PS I notice there are 2 down voted votes, most likely from insane petty people furious that the newest Professor Layton is on the 3DS and they don't like the way I've been mocking them... (I'm a bad person I know) In music terms it is like giving this 1 star because you can't play the CDs in your tape player.
