Only Land of Innocence is a great song on the album btw. Now they sound though more their own but IMHO someway a cheap Dio-copy. I also don´t like some of their musicians too. There are enough better metal bands in Finland than TS.
Well, personally one reason why I like this album is because it's different but still good. You know, some bands can play the same music for 4 or 5 albums, and then, as a "fan" you think "why should I buy the new album, if it's exactly the same as the others". (Primal Fear or Sonta Arctica, for ex).
You don't like some of their musicians ? Which one(s) ?
Personally I hate their bass player, he is everything I hate in someone.
But the other musicians seem really ok. I heard their keyboard player is really nice, but perhaps really really shy.
But I have to admit Thunderstone isn't so good live. I dunno why, something's missing. Perhaps because they have only one guitar player on stage, perhaps because Pasi can't sing perfectly live. And another thing : it seems they have played in Tuska every year since 2001, and always in the small stages!
