awesome review! i would definitely have given ride a 10 though, its my 2nd favorite song on the cd behind WoT. and yea Sacred Worlds is based on a MMO, there was an actually an in game concert of the original Sacred back when the game was released. and i also agree that this is their best album since Nightfall, a lot more consistent and memorable than the last two.
Dream Theater- 4/20
Iced Earth -5/1
