Fair - Worth a listen, but best obtained by collectors.
Bad - Major problems with music, lyrics, production, etc.
Terrible - Waste of your life and time.
Note: Reviews are graded from 0-5, anything higher or not showing is from our old style.
Scores, however, do not reveal the important features. The written review that accompanies the ratings
is the best source of information regarding the music on our site. Reviewing is opinionated, not a
qualitative science, so scores are personal to the reviewer and could reflect anything from being
technically brilliant to gloriously cheesy fun.
Demos and independent releases get some slack since the bands are often spent
broke supporting themselves and trying to improve. Major releases usually have big
financial backing, so they may be judged by a heavier hand. All scores can be eventually
adjusted up or down by comparison of subsequent releases by the same band. We attempt to
keep biases out of reviews and be advocates of the consumer without the undo influence of any band,
label, management, promoter, etc.
The best way to determine how much you may like certain music is to listen to it yourself.
Lust for Wonder
Mixture of traditional, gothic and power metal elements
Third album from the symphonic power metal act from Madrid. 'Lust for Wonder' is the group's first album for label Pitch Black after two successful independent ventures. The band blends the beautiful vocals of Rita Jimenez with a mixture of traditional, gothic and power metal elements. Tracks like 'The Spring in You' are symbolic of the album style--crunchy, heavy riffs with mid-paced punch and operatic vocals stylings. Look for guest appearances of David Readman (Pink Cream 69) and Ani Fojaco (Last Days of Eden).
