I purchased this album because my friend thought Sonata Arctica was the greatest band he’d ever heard. When I bought this album and I listened to it, it literally blew me away. Unlike the current wave of metal which consists of fast guitars and screaming lyrics, Sonata Arctica uses an actual singer and they can play music. This is one of the few albums is new metal where every track is really good. Don’t Say a Word was the song that really got me into them but when I heard Wildfire, I thought it was the best song on the album. My Selene and White Pearl, Black Oceans are my other two favorites but the other songs are great too.
2. Blinded No More
3. Ain’t Your Fairytale
4. Reckoning Day Reckoning Night
5. Don’t Say A Word
6. Boy Who Wanted To Be A Real Puppet
7. My Selene
9. White Pearl Black Oceans
I’m not exactly sure why but my version of the album contains a bonus track called Wrecking the Sphere. If you enjoy this album Ecliptica is another great album by them. This is one album that you’ll wan to listen to again and again and I highly recommend it for any people who like progressive metal.
