The lyrics all deal with the same subject matter as their previous albums with the major exception being the title track, Back Through Time. It's out of the ordinary because it had them time travel through a portal to fight Vikings. What was puzzling to me was that they mocked the Germanic Gods and had the Vikings pleading for their lives before being executed by them. I just found this puzzling because Alestorm has risen to fame by playing festivals such as Paganfest and have toured with bands like Týr and Heidevolk who focus all of their songs about Germanic/Nordic mythology and history. To me, it seems as kind of a slap to the face to some of the bands and their fanbase that have helped them.
Overall, it's a very good album. It's worth buying if you enjoyed their previous albums at all. It's good to see a band that is still experimenting with their sound from album to album to improve it.
Back Through Time, The Sunken Norwegian, Scraping The Barrel, Rum and You Are A Pirate are my favorite tracks on this CD, and are actually the reasons for me grabbing this particular disc.
Several of the songs are memorable and typical Alestorm pirate metal awesomeness, but the entirety of the album just doesn't flow like the other two. Depending on how much of a pirate metal/Alestorm fan you are, you might be better off pirating metal.
Three stars because this album rates 3rd of all of Alestorm's albums.

The album is fine itself, but a lot of the files themselves seem to peak out and distort. Dissapointing sound quality.Published 11 months ago by Tristan Gritton
