well, straight off let me say get the double disc edition, as the slow version of wicked witch is beautiful, and lunar lament should have made the full album, one hell of a track! for me, the tracks that have acoustic parts are the best, like seize the day, and the afore mentioned wicked witch. jon schaffer's riffage is as familiar as ever, all the better for it. dorian is a tad of a let down, being the longest track i was expecting something with a bit more of an epic feel. there is a very cool version of led zep's immigrant song, hansi's voice is excellent all thru the album. i would place this album just above the original d&w cd, as this has a continous high quality, whereas on the first disc, the first 6 tracks were titanic, but the last half lost it a bit...but only the doulbe disc version of this album, as you lose out on some cool songs.
