The only slight niggle I have with the album is that it’s a little bit top-heavy. Why I say this is because the three best songs on offer here are actually the first three in the running order, and while there’s another couple of rippers along the way, II never quite keeps up the promise of the opening trifecta.
“Songs like “The Pain Of The Accused” or “Doomsday” or “Compassion” would somehow never fit on an Primal Fear album. Sometimes you have a certain kind of flow or a red line which makes an album diverse and brings a lot of variety. So those songs never really fit on an album of PF.”
