I really enjoyed it. Absence of A Question of Heaven aside:

Pros:
The 2/3 of the Gettysburg trilogy, Watching Over Me, and Come What May. I totally didn't see the Gettysburg coming, WOM hadn't been a constant, and CWM is easily the best (and only great IMO) track on the new album.

Cons:
If you're gonna do one Stormrider track, it shouldn't be the song itself. I'd have rather seen Pure Evil, Travel in Stygian, or Angel's Holocaust. Also I've always felt My Own Savior is kind of overrated.

With Iced Earth though I take the good with the bad. I'm not gonna bitch over one or two songs, because with a band as hit-or-miss as they are, it could always be A LOT worse.
