I'm beginning to think that Rubicon will become my #1 album out of all bands.

Illumination, dear heavens, Mariangela! I didn't see that coming!

I really like the samples! Sounds great! Especially "Patriot Games"! I think Mary, Osten, Kjetil and Anders are singing all together at the chorus.

All the songs sound great. I really like Mary's voice in that short bit on 'Exile'.

it's really hard to pass judgment based on samples. so far my early favorite is the only tristania-sounding "Amnesia". the rest, i will give them time to grow on me.  :D

Thanx for the heads-up, Andariel! I agree whole-heartedly with the rest of you guys, Rubicon sounds absolutely lovely!! August 27th cannot come soon enough...

Magical Fix looks to be a very strong track - the clean male vocals in the verse heard here have a lovely atmosphere, and will contrast nicely to the growl bridge & duet chorus heard in the YouTube sample.

This album sounds like total beauty so far! I got goosebumps listening to the samples. The little bit of the song Illumination almost made me cry, it was so touching. Brilliant! CANT WAIT 'TIL THE RELEASE!!!

People who keep calling her voice ''poppy'' or ''mainstream'' should listen to this! Her singing style is more similar to Vibeke on Ashes; slow and soothing.

I'm not going to judge by the samples, becuase the only two songs I like by the samples besices Year Of The Rat are Amnesia and Illumination.

It sounds kinda like Ashes to me. Anything's an improvement over Illumination, though  :P

The only ones that really sparked my interest were "Amnesia", "Magical Fix" and "Illumination", but I will wait and see  :)

I am in love with what I've heard so far. The violin on Amnesia sounds so hauntingly beautiful, it reminds me of the Tristania days of old, but despite each sample being very short I don't think I will be disappointed. Can't wait for the release!
