I'm not much of a fan of this album, the Something Wicked trilogy is brilliant, but I feel that the rest of the songs aren't that great.

beside 'Night of the Stormrider' my favourite....great songs on it.  The trilogy is a masterpiece, but also songs Disciples of the Lie, Blessed are you, Stand Alone...

I started listening to IE/Metal with this CD.
The Coming Curse on repeat mode but never gave a fuck about the rest of the songs.
the first song that broke my ice after The Coming Curse, was Blessed Are you.
then I found a new face in the mirror.

I like it how the tracks are set up: fast song, half ballad, fast song ballad.... and at the end the Trilogy. totally awsome.

BTW, anyone noticed the strange organ in the background during the whole Coming Curse?? it's to make little children frighten without letting them know what it was, haha!!

Well, well, well, what will I say about this album that hasn't been said yet?

Excelent song writing, both musically and lyrical. And I love the fact that this album has probably the best song order an album can have: fast, slow, faster again, etc. and it contains probably the second best song trilogy (sorry, but nothing beats Gettysburg:D) from IE. The Wicked Trilogy is awesome and f****ng epic. Matt is incredible, and I don't think that his vocal performance was ever as great as on this record.

The only bad thing on/about this album: the bonus tracks. They blow  Mad

well maybe I get killed for that, but I liked the 'overture of the wicked' stuff with Ripper Owens also, you cannot compare them of corse, its would be the Barlow and Ripper discussion all over again...but I really enjoyed the new recorded Trilogy

I love Barlow, I really do, but I think the re-recorded Trilogy is better  Shocked
The whole atmosphere of the songs got changed, but listen to Prophecy, I just got blowed away! The Coming Curse is better too in this version, although the great piano intro is missing :/
And Birth Of The Wicked... Well the best version of this song is neither the original, nor this one, it's the Alive In Athens one Very Happy
