Rated 3.17/5 (63.33%) (6 Votes)
I love Sear Bliss' early albums so much, but nothing they have done since Glory and Perdition has really grabbed me, and that was a long time ago. Since then they have put out three albums that are certainly not bad by any stretch, but they just don't have the same kind of mood and melodic power.
And again, Letters from the Edge is not bad, it's just kind of faceless. The production is pro, the playing is solid, and sometimes the songwriting rises above itself, as on "A Mirror in the Forest", but overall this is the kind of album you put on and then tune out and forget you are listening to it. There's nothing poor about it, but very little is there to get your attention and hold it. I wish this were a great album, but it sadly is not.
