Seriously one of their best, most well rounded albums to date. Being able to keep the heaviness of Paradise Lost with adding styles from their older days was a genius idea and done flawlessly. I'm really happy that Pinella got more playing time on this album, some of his solos are fantastic. When All is Lost is definitely the best song on this cd, and will also go down as a classic in my book. If it doesn't replace Paradise Lost in the "ballad" slot live I will be very unhappy... For me, the chorus for Light up the Night brings me back to something like The Relic or In the Dragon's Den so that is where I get that old school feel in that song.
