Very prog album artwork. Looking forward to hearing this one. Evergrey never disappoints IMO.

Looking forward to this. The last two albums were pretty solid as well, especially Hymns.

I just went on an Evergrey binge the other day, so this is certainly good to see.

Pretty good cover art. Not a big fan Hansen's mixing\mastering, but music-wise their last two were quite decent and riff heavy (by Evergrey standards, at least), so here's hoping this'll keep it up.

Album art looks fantastic, and the last two albums were definitely an improvement over their mid to late aughts material; that said, the days where I would reasonably hope for a return to the level of quality of In Search of Truth have come and gone.

On the topic of Evergrey, anyone have any analysis of the remasters they released? Recreation Day could sound incredible if it were cleaned up a bit, for one.

First track is up. Good chorus and solo, riffing overall needs a little bit more "oomph" after that first set, but that's Evergrey. Here's hoping the rest is as solid as this.

I love the lead singer’s Instagram account trying to mine my list. Fuck that shit is annoying.

Interesting choice for a first track - it has the feel of an album closer.

I like it. It is a lot more along the lines of some of their earlier work, with some more interesting songwriting (though not really what I'd call progressive or complex). The last two albums were good compared to some of that mid-period material, but definitely a bit samey.

I really enjoyed the new track. Real heavy compared to previous Evergrey music. I hope there are more songs like it on the album. Heavier is always welcome.

I'm listening to it now and it's absolutely gorgeous. The first song alone is worth the price of the album.

Never been a fan of this band but as they will be touring reasonably close to where I live I have checked out the single and it sounds fine.

By the way, spectacular album artwork.

I agree. Initially, my expectations for the album were lowered by Weightless; simply put, my expectations were exceeded by the full album.

I'm a little late on getting this album, but it arrived on Friday and I've had 4-5 runs through it. I am not the biggest Evergrey fan, but am getting more and more into them over the years.

That said, this record is exactly what I wanted from them. It's a really intense, emotional experience. "Currents" is probably the only song that is great as a standalone track, but the entire album is just so heavy and draining. "A Silent Arc" works way better in the context of the album (even if it is the opener!). Literally half the songs on this album sound like waves are just crashing down on you while listening. "All I Have" has no business being as good as it is, given how repetitive the song is. Again though, it's just that waning sound that works so well for Evergrey.

I'm not sure this will necessarily be a top 10 album come year end, but I'm very happy with it and will be listening to it a lot.

It'll definitely be in my top ten. I still listen to it daily.
