Here we have the third offering from South American impresario Beto Vaquez and his swarm of guest musicians. He made a bit of a splash back in 2001 with his debut, featuring guest vocalists like Sabine Edelsbacher, Tarja Turunen, and Fabio Leone. This time he has not been able to round up anything near that lineup, and we have a bunch of guest singers who you have never heard of, from bands you have sorta heard of. Anyway, the vocals here are not a problem, as they are all perfectly competent if not spectacular (Except for Skylark's Kiara on track 8, who sucks unbelievably). The problem here is the uninspired and muddled nature of the songwriting.

Beto still has a good ear for melodies, but as always the songwriting compositions do not really come together as songs, rather just seeming a bunch of disjointed parts that fail to build on each other to create anything compelling. This is, for the most part, listenable, with only a few places that really offend and annoy. But there are no real corresponding moments when it rises above average either. This is pretty much just bland Power Metal with no real force, power, or direction.
