This is the best album for the year 2011 and one that will be discussed for the years to come! Melodic rock doesn't get any better. Songs are all killers, no fillers and mr Eriksen's voice is a treat to the ears.If you are a fan of Europe of the "Out of this world" & "Prisoners in Paradise" era, this is the best present you can give yourself! Plain awesome.Period.

What an album, superb songs throughout and not one 'filler' in sight. Every track is a joy to listen to.
Love Melodic Hard Rock, then this is a must album for your collection. Well worth the money spent on this CD.

My recent purchasing of some albums by the excellent "House Of Lords" resulted in Amazon bringing this album to my attention via my personal recommendations. I'll be honest and say after listening to (and enjoying) a few samples, I initially downloaded the album from a file sharing site. However, after what can only be described as a 58 minute AOR eargasm, I came straight back here to order the CD! It just wouldn't be right not to purchase such an excellent album. Powerful, melodic vocals, crunching guitars, soaring synth, this album makes perfect use of all these staples of the genre to craft 12 songs of the highest quality. Whilst hats are certainly being tipped towards the greats of the past (Europe, Journey etc), "The Magnificent" are definitely bringing the genre into the 21st century with their own fresh slant. Magnificent in name, Magnificent by reputation, simply put: Magnificent.

Bought this after playing the album on Spotify. Truly one of the greatest AOR albums ever released. Up there with Journey's 'Escape', Icon's 'Night Of The Crime' & Valentine's self-titled debut cd. A classic for the ages. All true AOR lovers MUST buy this album. You will NOT be disappointed.

Just when you think real quality AOR/80's Metal is gone forever The Magnificent spring up from nowhere and deliver what can only be described as the best AOR/80's Metal album of the last decade. It is completly and utterly sensational, it's that good....no, actually, it's better than that.

I'm a child of the 80's and melodic metal/AOR just grabbed me then and ever since there's been very little in the way of genuine quality AOR to fill the void, apart from the odd offering by Danger Danger, W.E.T. and Terry Brock (not Strangeways though!). That is until this was released. I stumbled across a review of it elsewhere that gave it 9.5/10 so I had to check it and I was simply blown away. Most albums have a few good tracks on them, maybe as many as four or five, but quite honestly every single track is complete and utter class, not a bad song anywhere. Sure there's those who'll scoff at the 80's Metal style lyrics, gripping riffs, swinging chorus' and the simply amazing virtuoso guitar playing but personally it's exactly what has always floated my boat (and us AOR aficionados should make no excuses for that) so be assured that this delivers all of that and more in super-tanker sized loads. I simply cannot find the words to compliment it enough.

So if you're reading this review then my guess is you're into this style of music so don't waste another second and just buy it. It's the best money you'll spend this year, absolutely guaranteed.

Put the kids to bed, get out the iPod, plug in some quality headphones, sit back in that comfy chair and be utterly blown away.

Enjoy.
