I have been a fan of Within Temptation for years - since 'Enter'....one of my favourite bands and Sharon is my favourite female vocalist. I was really looking forward to this album. I have seen them perform live several times - including London in December last year and they were great - as usual. This album though is 'ok' at best. Gone are the great guitaring - substituted for synths. The only great track is 'Mercy Mirror'. Supernova is nice to listen to but not really a rock song....If you liked the 'Silent Force' and 'The Heart of Everything' (2 great albums) - you prob won't like this album much. Just sample first and download the tracks you like - not worth buying the album.
