After waiting and waiting for ES Posthumus to come out with a new album, I was lucky to find this album to hold me over. I would've preferred "epic" choir vocals to the single lead vocal in many of the tracks. I agree with Robert's assessment that some of the lyrics sound a bit pop-ish. They work fine in some songs though. When I listen to this on my computer, I select 8 tracks (a very good amount, for me) and ignore the other 6.
Some of the songs take a "long" time to develop. When I'm listening in my car, I can hardly hear the first (and sometimes last) minutes of Diem Ex Dei, Crusaders Of The Light, Take Me Away, and Sarabande Suite, to name a few. Considering the songs average around 5 minutes, 20% of the song is basically a few decibels above silence. I do like these songs after they get break into full orchestra/choir. Perhaps you think build-up is a vital part of the song, so maybe I'm just impatient ;)
No one will mistake this music for Mozart or Bach, but it is catchy and entertaining. I recommend it if you can find it for a good price.
Song samples are available at Globus Music's website, so if you're deciding whether or not you want this CD, check them out.
