Q (p.97) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Anette Olzon's rich operatic vocals bring new passion and depth..."
Kerrang (Magazine) (p.54) - "It's not just the sheer amount of instrumentation that's so impressive, but how purposefully Holopainen has employed every string, whistle and parp to add amazing washes of colour to the songs."

Christopher, Nahoon Valley Park. 24 December 2007

Overall I liked the album, and the new singer's voice is just completely stunning. But to be really frank, this album as a whole is just not as good as their previous stuff. Still worth buying and Ill reserve judgement till the next one is released.
