AFTER FOREVER       After Forever
Nuclear Blast (release: April 20th, 2007)

Floor Jansen's flights of lyricism are more restrained, less demonstrative and much more mastered than in the past, with a little bit more aggressive singing sometimes, helped by some magnificent musical arrangements. A few guests to report, including Doro on Who I Am (if it's a riddle, it was easy, we have immediately found the answer thanks to the lovely accent of our favourite Teutonic girl). Not even a weak song to throw away in this album, AFTER FOREVER is in the big league now.
Simply majestic.Laurent
