1. No Dream in My Night:

The keyboards with sad sound effect lead us into a fast  and heavy number.Pounding drums  and driving bass  providing for the clean male vocals while the guitars give  a heavy , melodic feel. The female vocals come to  give a contrast.The guitar solo works very well and the keyboards follow the melodic power metal path.

The track opens with melodic piano, heavy guitar riffs and thunder drums.The female voice enters to join with the male vocal in an epic way.The quality of both vocalists are extremely great.The guitar works are perfectly from heavier to lighter passages.
