|Things don't seem to be going too well|
It's not all great though. Like too many other power metal bands, Stratovarius decides to squeeze in some slow songs and ballads. Lots of people like that crap. I am not one of them. Just a matter of taste I suppose. I enjoy my music aggressive and fast paced, with the occasional slow song if it's really really good.
This is far from an album review, but go check out the album yourself. They've even made a music video for Halcyon Days. The song? Great. The video? Uhh, the transitions into all the different shirts are cool I guess. There's not really much else in the video besides the band playing, as bands tend to do, so I give it a big meh. But you should watch it anyway! Just click right here:
