Better Than Raw Reviews

Reviewer :    (80/100)
Date : 
본작 Better Than Raw 에서부터 스피드보다는 파워에 무게중심이 옮겨진 형태의 사운드를 구사하게 된다. Keeper Of The Seven Keys 시리즈나 전작 The Time Of The Oath 보다 좀 더 감각적이고 현대적인 느낌이 나는 앨범으로 다소 노선변경이 이루어지긴 하였지만 긍정적인 변화로 평가된다. 싱글발매로 인기를 끌은 Hey Lord, I Can등이 주목할 만하다. 역시 키퍼시리즈 Part1 앨범부터 함께 한 Tommy Hansen이 프로듀서, 믹서로 참여하고 있다. 높은 완성도를 갖추진 못한 것 같아 아쉬움이 든다.

Best Track : Hey Lord , I Can
