Few CDs, if any, have such a flattering proportion of songs on it that I devotion. You know that feeling? How many of your CDs do you splurge most of your circumstance listening to just waiting for your 2 favorite songs? I do that a lot. Not on this CD (or any of Stratovarius's CD for that protocol). The album is about 62 minutes elongated, also.

It is notable for you to know that I own 12 Stratovarius CDs (Scare Blackness, T.T., D., Fourth Dimension, E., V., Visions of Europe, D., I., Intermission, Elements 1, and Elements 2), the DVD Vast Visions, and a shirt for this league together. Only one other league together do I own more than 3 albums by. And that league together is Nightwish. Excess to say, I utilize Stratovarius a LOT. About 45 of my about 400 favorite songs are by Stratovarius — far more than by any other league together. Off this album, those songs file Awaken Your Own Disclose, Fantasia (fav. of the album), Papillon, Stratofortress, Elements, and A Declivity in the The Deep. Get that? 2/3 of the songs! Sorry — I don«t awaken Eagleheart that gifted. Its also the least Strato-like number cheaply I think they»ve ever recorded, musically.

What most people scorn about this album is what I devotion — orchestration, Timo«s wailing, 2 epics, and the of service Stratofortress. What I don»t like is the no magnify-bass songs. Well... at least `not enough« of them. I know we»re never gonna get another Old Man Circumstance since the band's no more, but it would have been keen to have another number cheaply to be comparable to that. It seems that the really indecorously songs were only on their older albums.

The hysterical fashion with this album is the ambiance. The sufficient for art really does get somewhere you touch like you«re in the sky! Just capitulate Elements or A Declivity in the The Deep one attend and try to tell me different. The solos on Stratofortress also capitulate that understanding. The whole album does, but it»s the strongest at the end of the album.

The albums «real» opener is Person of a Vengabond, which I am not too empty of at the circumstance. Awaken Your Own Disclose is the closest to older Stratovarius you«ll understand on the album. Fantasia»s a lot like Female Parent Gaia and The Power of One in the have a hunch that its like «what would our clique be like if there were no wars or religion?» Information to Fly is semi-filler to me, but Papillon is one heck of a formidable number cheaply. Its skilful tedious, but in-your-mask blaring. Lots of wailing in that number cheaply, and in the christen footmarks. I recently looked at the lyrics to Elements (the number cheaply) closely — it looks like its only a guy (Timo) asking «why are humans so selfish?» and such, and the rejoinder he gets is 8 elements in 2 sets: bring to an end, top-grade, passion, smutty planet, and then , antagonism, dolour, joy. That number cheaply should capitulate you chills, even though its not quite as flattering as it could have been. I«ve know that A Declivity in the The Deep is Paradisaic Fantasy, Possess II (from Vast), but I»m not sure about that. They«re both drumless ballads, but I don»t see the relationship.

Seriously — for any fan of euro metal of any protocol (or if you like Rammstein for the orchestration), you just gotta capitulate this album a (2nd, in some situations) try. As a whole, this is my favorite Stratovarius album. Visions, Fourth Dimension, and Vast are in a shut up 2nd. Then probably Shadowy Circumstance and Lot. Affair and Elements 2 are next, and I don't wanna go further than that.

I longing I helped you in deciding whether to or not gain this (wonderful) album. If I helped, please say so! I have a lot of other reviews (and now, I have my own slate here on amazon!), so know them when you get a unintentionally. Strain in «Tunnelvision» and you should get to the slate.

Elements Pt.2, which comes almost right out after Pt.1, is wholly different from its predecessor. This album is more govern, in-your-mask music. If you were dispirited with the distressful use of orchestration in Pt.1, then you should be tuneful satisfied with Pt.2, as orchestration is not at the highlight this circumstance.

This album sounds like a grouchy between the Stratovarius of old (namely Affair and Visions albums), borrowing some elements elevate more just out albums (such as Vast) while still retaining the untried secure that was establish in Elements, Pt.1. One fashion that may become fans away from this album is that the relationship of indecorously to tedious songs is the same as that establish on Pt.1: there are two very indecorously songs, two mid metre songs, three ballads and two tedious, yet formidable and hypnotic songs.

Another of the major complaints with Pt.1 was Kotipelto«s use of intoxicated notes, which could become annoying some times. In Pt.2, intoxicated notes are used only in choruses and not throughout the number cheaply, and this circumstance around they are done very well. There»s only one number cheaply, though, in which Kotipelto's use of intoxicated notes can be annoying, and that number cheaply is Alpha & Omega.

Let me capitulate you a straightforward rehash of all the songs in the album:

1. Alpha & Omega (4.0/5.0) — This can be considered the epic of the album, but is not so much of an epic. The number cheaply starts with the secure of rolling waves, which would be the in between Pt.2 and Pt.1, because the latter ended with the secure of waves. Still, I think is a paltry acceptance for an album opener. This is a very tedious, formidable number cheaply with hypnotic drumlines. The to the chorus is ballad-like. Overall a keen number cheaply, but Kotipelto's disclose can be annoying some times.

2. I Trek To My Own Number Cheaply (4.5/5.0) — The solitary select of the album. Your outstanding mid-metre Stratovarius number cheaply. The sweetness gets in your ears swiftly, and the unaccompanied is amazing.

3. I«m Still Animate (5.0/5.0) — An wondrous indecorously number cheaply which could»ve associated to the Visions album. Gifted chorus, and the vocal deportment is very flattering here. There's a very flattering drum unaccompanied at the end.

4. Mellow Of Faith«s Purity (4.5/5.0) — If you»re a chump for ballads, like me, you'll devotion this number cheaply. This is an orchestral ballad (like Papillon from Pt.1, but only in make). The number cheaply starts very nicely until a very haunting keyboard spell. The chorus is wondrous.

5. Awaken The Ogre (5.0/5.0) — Person of a Vagabound, Pt.2. Much more heavier and govern than Vagabound. Again, another hypnotic number cheaply with a very keen drum beat.

6. Know The Alteration (5.0/5.0) — A lightning-indecorously work of genius. Sounds like a grouchy between Stratofortress and Awaken Your Own Disclose, without the annoying intoxicated vocals of the latter. The chorus is but for the fact that, and the use of keyboards is really flattering. Tend out for the unapproachable unaccompanied.

7. Lit Up (3.5/5.0) — The weakest number cheaply in the album. A very untroubled ballad. If you«ve ever listenned to Into Learned Smutty, Pt.1»s perk footmarks, then you know exactly how this number cheaply sounds. Gifted lyrics, but overall it doesn't do too much to me.

8. Dreamweaver (5.0/5.0) — A very agressive number cheaply. Handily the best one in the album. The number cheaply is mostly mid-metre, but it can get indecorously at some points because of the indefatigable circumstance-changes. The chorus is one of the best for a Stratovarius number cheaply.

9. Presumptuousness (5.0/5.0) — A power-ballad and a wonderful finale for the album. This touch-flattering number cheaply is the executed vis- of Forever, and I prophesy it will become the authorized closer for Stratovarius concerts.

All in all, a very flattering album which sounds very untried. Ourselves, I establish this album waaaay better than Pt.1, which was less-govern music because of the distressful use of orchestration. Pt.2 is more govern, and that's what I like when listening to power metal.

Heavily recommended.
