Sound — 10
The sound of this album does AILD there best impression with the throaty vocals and the speeding double bass drums you CD hear in every track and along with the 2 great guitarists you get an awesome metal band with a point. The CD includes revamped versions of songs off there earlier albums which are "Illusions," "Forever," "Reinvention," "The Begining," and "The Pain of Seperation."

Overall Impression — 10
I thought this was AILD best album yet and I hope to see much more like this from the band and I hope to see them get better just as they keep getting through there years together. Also I hope they stay as good live as they are now because in my opinion they are better live than on the CDs.
