While I like some aspects of When All is Lost (most notably the guitar work) the song itself seems too long to me. It has an awesome Rush - Xanadu feel at times but other times it seems to drag on. Other than that I agree with everything you said.
Just curious how you rate this vs. new Pagan's Mind?
I disagree about "When All is Lost", I think it's basically perfect in every way, including its length. Wouldn't change a damn thing about it if I could.
As of now, this is my #1 album of 2011, and the new Pagan's Mind is #2 (just ahead of Evergrey at #3).
