Review Type: 

The first W.E.T. album, released in 2009, was critically acclaimed.  For a ‘band’ that had been created by a record label to create such a stir was quite sensational.  Of course the musicians involved had all proven themselves previously.

Now the world is ready to receive the next installment.  And just like the first album, it’s sensational.  It’s in the same vein as it’s predecessor, so fans of melodic rock don’t need to hesitate for a moment and can blindly buy this album.

The sound is good, the songs are good, the musicians are very good, and to top it all of the production is crystal clear.  Of course it can’t be denied that you hear glimpses of the band these guys normally play in, which are Work Of Art for Robert Sall, Eclipse for Eik Martensson and a bit of Journey – who set aside Jeff Scot Soto, but a bit of Talisman also shines through. My conclusion: a very good album.
