Reception[edit]

Professional ratings
Review scores
Source Rating
Metal Hammer Germany 5/7[1]
Rock Hard 8.5[2]

The German edition of Metal Hammer awarded 5 out of 7 points but noted that singer Sabine Edelsbacher could not not convey as much pathos as Amy Lee, Sharon den Adel or Tarja Turunen. She was instead found reminiscent of Candice Night when singing slower, medievally inspired tracks.[1] The reviewer for Rock Hard wrote that Edenbridge had found a balance between romanticism and kitsch, but requested more uptempo tracks.[2]
