I didn't want to post in here for the last 3 months, thinking it was just me being biased against it, but I agree completely. Most of the tracks didn't have the passion they deserved. Many of the songs did have passion, but were unfortunately slow to start, and ended just when getting me interested. Tracks inspired by Magus had a sense of danger, but not the tormented side of it.
I truly am sorry that I didn't enjoy this as much as I should have, I am sorry to the remixers that dedicated their time to this that I didn't appreciate their work as much as was warranted. If there is any consolation to these artists, I still believe that I am biased by the constant delays and the promises of immaculate music. Nothing could have lived up to the promises made, and broken from September through January. If anyone was not reading the release discussion thread waiting with baited breath, I suggest you give it a listen and make your own choice. Otherwise, if anyone who followed the thread for the four months leading to the release has yet to get it, save yourself the trouble.
