This work is something completely different from their previous works, and as such, it can't be watched with the same glasses. This is more in the lines of Midnight Syndicate's Dungeons & Dragons RPG Soundtrack, with synthesized orchestrations and an epic, adventurous feeling in it. As the disc title says, it's an epic journey through the vast empire of the imagination, with the score as your guide. Pieces like "Unholy Trinity" and "The Valley" bring to your mind images of inmense battlefields an heroic acts of brave warriors, while others like "Empty Gaze" and "The Alleged Paradigm" take you to the deepest of the heroes' hearts, feeling their fear, their sorrows, and their desire to put an end to it.
Yes, it's true, it's completely different from "The Phantom Agony" or "Consign to Oblivion", but that doesn't mean it's bad, does it? Each artist has a need to express his feelings and ideas, and it's up to him to choose his means to do that.
A piece of advice for everyone: When writing a review, about anything, judge it by itself, not by comparing apples with oranges.

I would give it about 3 and a half stars but wouldn't let me.
This album is completely different from anything else Epica has done. There is no metal in it. Read more
