Chapters From A Vale Forlorn
Released: 2002, Metal Blade
First of all I need to say that I disagree with the review of Falconer's debut album here on Metal-Rules.com. Personally I believe it should have recieved a 4.5 and not a 4.0. Since I'm going on what I would give their debut, the rating I gave this sophomore effort is just a little bit lower.
If you enjoyed the first Falconer, chances are very good you'll enjoy this. The style is still the same and many of the songs are still just as catchy. However, this album doesn't seem to have as much energy and power as the first one. Don't get me wrong, this is still a killer disc. It's just that many of the songs on here seem a bit too soft at some points (when compared to the self-titled). Still a great album. Still a heavy album. Not as great as the debut though. Hopefully their next effort will have a bit more power and shredding to it. I still love this disc though and I still recommend it to anyone who liked their debut.
I would also like to say that I love the artwork style these guys are going with and I hope they keep that uniqueness on all their later albums.
