The songs musically are done with a 40 piece orchestra and a 32 piece choir and band... with Sarah of course ;o)
The music isn t fantastic when it comes to guitars and stuff, but there are some good use of guitar on here, and good use of keyboard too. If the band had more control of this SONY record, it probably would have sounded better. There are some definete highlights on here, and some that are just good to listen too.

The lyrics, one can argue, but I feel they're in good form.

its not full of mindblowing awesome guitar, and to understand the "Satan kicked out of Heaven" story you have to read along with the lyrics that are in front of some nice pictures through out the booklet.
I give this album a personal Four and half, out of Five.
I tried it, and still like it.
Good Job, Cradle!
