Man, this is one of the best cd's i've ever heard. Is pure metal in veins!!!!!

From: WhiteLion Date: September 20, 2001 at 11:08
Better then average but not among my top 10 list. Best song is 'Picturing the Past'! Recommended.

From: Jocke med knive Date: February 7, 2002 at 7:33
Its magic

From: Horia Date: February 17, 2002 at 13:22
I saw Sonata Arctica live. They sounded better than Rhapsody. Their music is fresh and imaginative. I would say that they are very promising

From: Geralt Date: February 28, 2002 at 16:19
Ecliptica is excellent! Some say Sonata Arctica is a Stratovarius clone but don't believe them, it's so much better that it gets beyond comparison. However, their latest effort - Silence - isn't so impressive.

From: Motley Date: April 27, 2002 at 19:31
Really amased by this.they are so young and still kick ass. Great cd especially the opener:O)

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 Date: July 7, 2002 at 10:09
Estilo Stratovarius....pero aun mejores son esta gente.Temas muy rapidos,melodicos y buenos aunque para mi los dos mejores son los medios tiempos My Land y FullMoon.DISCAZO.

From: doa zcan Date: July 17, 2002 at 16:28
ecliptica is not very complex struct but had a very great originality. tony kakko sing and playing keyboard. anyway made all the songs. silence(2nd album) is very complex than ecliptica because they were joined 2nd keyboards.

From: Bazz Date: July 23, 2002 at 17:19
Why is this the only album here? Knowing that Silence is quite good... I'd say better than Silence, and Successor is quite good too... not to mention Last Drop Falls

From: SrFloppy5 Date: December 10, 2002 at 0:58
) champions vas muy de guays... Medio tiempo my land? Pa ti que es caa. Mnimo Pantera, no? joder. Gran disco, no como el segundo q es muy poppy y muy sencillo de estructuras, no como ste. escuchad Replica, una especie de Children of the damned de Iron. La bomba!

From: Mr. Fuzzles Date: February 18, 2003 at 22:02
meh, ive recently got into this group... ive got almost all of their songs.. there isnt a song they havent done that i havent liked.. they are good... different from the other powermetal i have. my favorite songs that they did would have to be Wolf and Raven, Sing in Silence, and Replica... there are more cd's that should be added here btw..

From: Luis Miguel Date: April 10, 2003 at 2:36
EL mejor disco que he escuchado en todo mi vida, de las 10 canciones todas son buenas, aunque el grupo a cambiado en sus ultimos 3 discos, igualmente sigue siendo muy bueno, para los que no lo conocen y les gusta el power metal escuchen, 8th commandment, Black Sheep, Wolf & Raven y The Cage

From: STROWHERKING Date: April 10, 2003 at 16:57
sonata arctica es el power mas original y muy bueno sobre todo en su ultimo album

From: Date: April 15, 2003 at 17:09
es un diskazo, con un monton de temas cojonudos como 8th commandment y... todos los demas. de los mejores diskos de power metal ke han caido en mis manos, el cantante tiene una de las voces mas prodigiosas dentro de este panorama musikal, con un registro impresionante y luego ese bateria tipiko del mejor power metal. gran disko, gran grupo, a ver si me consigo los demas diskos...

From: tailgunner Date: April 15, 2003 at 17:12
diskulpadme, yo fui el autor del mensage anterior, pero se ma olvido firmarlo, escuchad la 6!!!

From: Alejandro Date: April 30, 2003 at 19:05
Fabuloso debut de Sonata. Con un sonido potente, ms all que dentro de este estilo, no sean muy innovadores, al menos renuevan un tanto lo que, por ejemplo vena ofreciendo Stratovarius. Excelente produccin, y canciones muy logradas, hacen de este CD algo absolutamente recomendable para los amantes del genero. 9/10. No dejes de escucharlos. carro_martin2000@yahoo.com.ar

From: Moon shine Date: April 30, 2003 at 20:02
this is the best group and cd I have ever heard I recomend it a lot. Especially full moon and 8th comandment, dont miss it if u want the best power ever thats called Sonata Arctica. I gave it a 10 its just perfect. thx to Sonata I like the metalThey are the best group of filand and they i have a very good style. they are the best!!!!

From: WillyWave Date: May 21, 2003 at 15:06
Only a child reckless and wild needs to come home again. He promised the moon but won't maaaaarry you!!!!

From: WillyWave Date: May 21, 2003 at 15:08
A donde puedo encontrar estos discos... no solo de sonata arctica sino tb de edguy, stratovarius etc...

From: Txus Date: June 3, 2003 at 1:36
Yo les voy a decir algo, he escuchado pocas rolas de Sonata, no tocan mal, pero si quieren oir verdadera calidad escuchen DragonForce, una banda que en su primer disco (demo) se llamaban DragonHeart... Ellos rifan!!!

From: Date: June 3, 2003 at 1:37
Hola tu que crees que pase hoy?

From: Date: July 1, 2003 at 11:33
willy wave, si vives cerca de zaragoza pasate x la tienda de discos leyenda y alli te consiguen cualquier disco, de sonata, edguy o stratovarius, o si no en cualquier corte ingles o fnac los de strato los tienen seguro, los demas no lo se.

From: Johan Date: August 26, 2003 at 7:48
Their best album so far! Full Moon is a true masterpiece, Blank File and My Land also stand out. No fillers on this album, just genuine quality shit!! Buy or Die!

From: Date: October 14, 2003 at 5:57
Great bad, great album. Unbelievable drummer, keyboards but oddly enough, I wasn't one bit impressed by the guitar work. Not heavy or aggressive enough. Nonetheless, great band. Sing in Silence, from their new album is definitely of their best songs. But I'd take Stratovarius over them anyday!

From: guitargod87 Date: November 18, 2003 at 0:45
Simply incredible. This band has some of the best musicians ive ever heard, and every song is full of emotion and lightning fast riffs. Even their slower songs are great, some even better than the fast ones. Best songs: Kingdom for a Heart, Full Moon, and Destruction Preventer (INCREDIBLE)

From: Jentaro Date: February 27, 2004 at 1:04
the best

From: nick Date: March 28, 2004 at 18:17
run away run away run away.

From: MOOSE Date: May 6, 2004 at 23:17
amazing album, as is Silence and Winter Hearts guild- Sobata is among melodic metals finest

From: Seeth Date: May 21, 2004 at 16:26
Muy buen disco, todas sus canciones de este y los otros discos son lo mejor, lo mejor de su categoria!!! mi banda favorita son muy buenos, la cagaron!!! saludos desde chile

From: Wolf&Raven Date: June 14, 2004 at 0:46
very good album is for most everyone a very promising band...for me, i think they need mutch more to put them near Strato...they made a exelent start in the metal scene that's for sure!

From: powerhard Date: December 22, 2004 at 4:25
Otra mas,clones de los stratosobrevaloradosvarius,encima con un cantante que no da la talla.

From: Aragorn Date: December 22, 2004 at 8:54
Sonata Arctica is amazing!! some of the best power metal i have ever heard. i love the guitar/keyboard solo in "Blank File." it reminds me of medieval guys swordfighting. sweet!!! great album. if u like this one, you should check out Silence because it is really good as well. I love music with medieval themes, and these guys definatly fit that descrioption. Bottom line, SONATA ARCTICA RULES!!!!

From: Been Date: May 3, 2005 at 16:39
This album is amazing, but both Winterhearts Guild and Rekoning Night are even better. They should really be on this website.... But anywho, these guys have a sound and vocally; Toni you are are a very blessed man to have such a voice!

From: POWERREAL Date: June 13, 2005 at 13:09
ESTA MAS O MENOS ESTE DISCO DE SONATA, BUENAS ROLAS LAS DE TIEMPOS NORMALES, ESTE GRUPO LA VERDAD SOLO ARROJA 2 0 3 TOLAS BUENAS POR DISCO, A MI EN LO PERSONAL ME GUSTA MAS EL HEAVY QUE EL POWER, LE HALLO MAS SENTIDO, PERO LO QUE SI ME HARTA DE LOS GRUPOS POWER Y EN ESPECIAL DE ESTE ES

From: POWEREAL Date: June 13, 2005 at 13:14
QUE SE LA JUEGAN DE MUY RAPIDOS Y PODEROSOS, Y NI SIQUIERA TOCAN EL DOBLE BOMBO, LO PROGRAMAN, HASTA UN BATERISTA PRINCIPANTE COMO YO LO HA TOCADO, OTRA COSA QUE LA VERDAD ESTE GENERO SE DEBERIA DE LLAMAR SPEED METAL(QUE ES SU CARACTERISTICA PRINCIPAL LA VELOCIDAD), Y PIERDEN LO BUENO DE LA MUSICA QUE ES LA MELODIA, SONATA ASI COMO TIENE EXCELENTES BALADAS DE MEDIO TIEMPO Y ROLAS HEAVY(Y DIGO RITMO HEAVY),PARA MI TIENE SU MIERDERO COMO ES WOLF & RAVEN, QUE ASCO DE ROLA, LA VERDAD...

From: POWERREAL Date: June 13, 2005 at 13:20
CREO QUE HA ESTE DISCO LE DOY 6/10 ESTA MEDIO SARRA, SI QIUEREN ESCUCHAR BUEN POWER METAL / HEAVY METAL ESCUCHEN STRATOVARIUS, NIGHTWISH, WARMEN, YNGWIE J. MALMSTEEN( ESTE LES PEGA UNA PELA A TODOS LOS GUITARRISTAS POWER SIN SERLO) Y TODO LO QUE SE LE PAREZCA, Y EN ESPAOL RATA BLANCA, RED WINE, AVALANCH, MAGO ETC.... P.D. LOS GRUPOS DEMASIADO RAPIDOS AHOGAN LA MELODIA DE LA ROLA, CHEQUEN DATO NO SE VAYAN CON LA FINTA DE QUE ENTRE MAS RAPIDO TOQUEN MEJORES MUSICOS SON....

From: rick kerch vzla Date: August 29, 2018 at 22:15
A wonderful debut!!!...an album with plenty of catchy Power Metal songs all over it...tracks # 2,4,5,6 & 8 are my fave ones...simply recommended...88/100 :-)
