    Skylark with Fabio Dozzo was the best I heard, and he should never have left the band! [2] Seriously, what a long & painful descent it has been. There's Kiara the model (worst singer in metal history), plus they re-record every song 5 times on five different releases, and the album covers have gone from the greatest ever to looking like they were Photoshopped by a 12-year old! What on earth happened? I was a fan from 1997 until Fabio got replaced by a fashion model.

    I don't understand what happened with Skylark, one of the best Power Metal bands with Rhapsody (1995-2002), Skylark with Fabio Dozzo was the best I heard, and he should never have left the band!

    One of the nicest surprises of 2012 was that Skylark finally ditched the Worst Vocalist in Metal History (fashion model Kiara) and released their best album since 2002's Princess Day!

    Genial, obvio que hablo de la banda de Metal, lastima que desde que se fue Fabio Dozzo, la banda perdió sentido,a pesar de la genialidad de Antonini
