I think some of the songs on here were either very very good or not good at all, but then again, you can't please everyone. I think the whole "15 year wait" has totally overrated this album and therefore people have been expecting the world from it, which i think is wrong.
Some of my favourite songs are:
- Street of dreams
- Shackler's revenge
- There was a time
There have been a few modern twists to the album as a whole which i think make it quite unique (especially to their other material) and yes, like i said, i think people are expecting too much of this album and for it to just sound like all their other stuff.
The reason why i give this a 4/5 is because of how much it has changed, in some songs they have completely adopted a new style. However, i think it's money well spent and you should listen to the previews on itunes perhaps if you're still unsure.
