Jørn Viggo Lofstad's guitar, check
Floor's voice, check

Good stuff, yes it is. Really it makes me want a new Pagan's Mind more, and a Floor guest on a PM track, though.

I don't know about this. It sounded strange to me. Perhaps just not what I expected, and not a style I'd typically listen to.

It's a solid record, but I feel like they aren't sure whether to be rock or melodic metal. It veers between the two, and Floor sounds much better doing one than the other.

It's pretty straightforward, and like Nos said it doesn't really know what side of the fence it wants to land on. There's kind of a pang of wasted potential, imo. Still, when the plain ole rock mood strikes, this is something that'd fit the bill nicely.
