[This is a mini-review posted by Larry to the Perpetual Motion board -ed.]

If you're basking in Bleed, possibly one of my favorite power metal discs of the 90's, and you're wondering if their previous work, Border of Reality is better, I say no although some will disagree. It's not as polished as Bleed, not as melodic, and there are some throwaway songs on this one, whereas on Bleed, not a single song gets fast forwarded. it is definitely worth owning though and wil provide many listens of great melodic power metal done right. This disc has a few more speed demons on it, as well as a great cover of Rainbow's "Spotlight Kid" which I found to be interesting for a band like this to cover....... it's a definite buy for melodic power metal lovers.
