    I'd say it's their most inconsistent. Some amazing, some shit.

    It's a solid and innovative album, they maybe wanted a new approach and expand their musical limits, that means originality and freshness that it's good and welcome in my opinion, specially if the result is that good... but I guess not all the people can understand it.

    It's not their best, but is premier quality music as well the rest of Kamelot discography. The point of this album in my opinion is to be experimental and variative respect of the previous sound, but specially remaining with the dark atmosphere explored on The Black Halo and exploring more and more the posibilities of working with orchestra and choirs, being more symphonic oriented and less power metal.

    I don't even know what's wrong with you weirdos.... to say that this album is better than The Black Halo would be a joke, but TBH is like the epitome of symphonic power metal for me (along with Century's Child). Ghost Opera is still a very solid album with some super awesome moments.

    I liked this album - I thought each musical composition fit well with the atmosphere and theme of the lyrics. The concept albums tended to be straight up power metal.

    why so many people don't like this album? Ghost Opera is in my opinion one of their bests together with TBH. I love every single one one this one (:

    You're wrong. I'M RIGHT. D;

    All three of those songs are still weaker than anything off Epica/TBH apart from This Pain.

    You're wrong. EdenEcho, Pendulous Fall and Season's End together is the most amazing moment in Kamelot's whole discography. Add in Epilogue for more awesome. And where did Roy say it wasn't their best work? I call bullshit.

    After The Fourth Legacy, Karma, Epica and The Black Halo, a real let down :(. Not a terrible let down, but is far less interesting than the previous four albums.
