...well, I cued this up, and expected to can it after 1-2 songs like every album by then since "Visions".
It actually doesn't suck, at least 4 songs in. Nice epic, aggressive power metal with just enough cheese content.

Update - song 4 ("Halcyon Days") is the obvious pop song, since the chorus sounds like it was lifted from Kelly Clarkson song.
