^The album IS great, but it depends on from which point of view you look at it. It's DAMN HEAVIER, more riff-oriented, the synths have smaller role and all the "tilu" is left out. You can still wait for some nice melodies, big chorus' and speedy tracks.
Hey, I love their old stuff too, but Evolution 4.0 is just mindblowing stuff for me.
And I'll see Thunderstone again, tonight!
