I have really given this album a lot of time and effort, but there is simply too many songs that never reach the standard they set with their previous album "The Towers of Avarice", there even a couple of songs, which in my book is absolute failures... like "Brain Surgery" and "Losing Control".

Itís really sad to see a band take a step back like Zero Hour does here, only the 2 instrumentals "Somnecrophobia" and "Intrinsic" along with the outstanding title track lives up to my expectations.

DAMN IT - I really liked their earlier stuff a lot, but this one simply doesn't cut it for me...

Recommended tracks: "Somnecrophobia", "A Fragile Mind" & "Intrinsic".
