Could've done much better

"No, this isn't the album to buy, unless you really want to spend the money. Comparing it with the other works of Therion, this is a major disappointment. I don't even know what happened. There still is some of that beloved mix of metal and classics, but many things have gone wrong. The songs that are good (yes, there are some), sound like a mere repetition of "Theli". Indeed, if I were you, I'd definetly go for Therion, but not for this album: it's just not the best. Instead, buy "Vovin", or "Crowning of Atlantis". And if you already own those, don't even bother, rather consider their earlier works."
My first therion & always a favorite for me

"when i first bought this cd because i thought the digipack version was cool, little i knew about therion, about change in their style, about theli or their other cds. neither did i know then that i'd use this cd as a guide to my initiation to good music.anyway, let's take from the beginning, i didn't notice anyone writing here that cd is special in one other way, it was supposed to celebrate the 10th birthday of therion, that's why it's a bit different than the other releases, it is supposed to be a treat to the fans!the cd has 3 parts : the covers, the soundtrack & the "therionized" versions of picks from this soundtrackthe soundtrack is the weakest part of the cd, it gives a hint though of things to come & of what to expect in the next releasesthe best tracks off the soundtrack are given a special therion treatment, heavier & more enjoyable they become as a result, all are favorites of minethe covers though are awesome. what can one say of these covers? my favorites are fly to the rainbow (uli jon roth is cj's fave guitarist after all) & here come the tears, incredibly beautiful songs with nice lyrics as well as great musicin the covers section, there are two leftovers from the theli sessions which could have been included to it as they are great songs & one reprise of the symphony of the dead, one of my favorite instrumentals to this dayso, what i'm trying to say here is that this cd should be on everyone's collection, either for the covers, the soundtrack or the rarities (leftovers). if you find the digipack version, grab it immediately, a real beauty it is"
Incredibly Fabulous -- combining classical with metal!

"Yet another great CD from Therion. They have geniously combined a metal band line-up with an orchestra, choir, and musical brilliance. Just when I thought I've heard it all, they throw in a set of horns to back up a rythm guitar solo. Incredible..."
