DragonForce doing DragonForce

First of all, this is a typical DragonForce album. More importantly, this is DragonForce remaining true to who they are and simply excelling at it. The songs are shorter, yes, but the intensity is very much there. I was pleasantly surprised by "Give Me the Night" and "Holding On," as well as the solo in "Die By the Sword" and the finish of "Last Man Stands." They were certainly better at transitioning into their solos than they were in Ultra Beatdown, which was one concern that I had personally held. There were also copious moments scattered about the album where I practically bolted upward and said, "Whoa." I take these as hints of what DragonForce can do with Marc.

The only criticism I have is that they did not go terribly far beyond their typical sound; however, I have less of a problem with that as this is their first effort after such a major change. They've proven that they're still DragonForce, and I'll be more than fine listening to this album until their next one comes out.

Not as good as older stuff

New singer makes it sound too bland. The other vocalist was epic.

Something for everyone here

People may complain about Dragonforce's new sound and the lack of ZP, but I appreciate it. I've been a Dragonforce fan since Valley of the Damned, but even I've been starting to grow bored with their streak of albums containing nothing but the usual 7-minute long shredding. Personally, I enjoy this album for the diversity in its songs. Granted, there's still loads of epic guitar shredding action in almost every song, but some of the other instruments become more prominent. There's a bass solo or two, Dave's drum parts sound less mundane, and of course Marc's voice adds plenty of diversity with his vocal range (something that ZP never had). All in all, there's plenty on this album to appease both old and new fans alike, and if you've been starting to lose faith in Dragonforce I suggest giving this album a listen. It may just change your mind like it did mine.
