I think it has far more replay value than Great War or the one before it. Definitely still a far cry from the glory days, but at least it harkens back more to their classic style. I’m particularly impressed with the heavier focus on great guitar work.
The crazy thing about being a Sabaton fan is that I can agree with these points and still enjoy the album.Just very Sabaton by the numbers, nothing really interesting or inspired, and the constant sappy/happy tone really bothered me. This isn't a band trying to challenge themselves at all.
Yeah these are all criticisms you could’ve lobbied at Sabaton since at least Heroes if not earlier. Just a matter of which uninspired retread you end up liking. I’m just glad the album has some bops and isn’t nearly as meh as The Last Stand. Still wish they’d push themselves though.The crazy thing about being a Sabaton fan is that I can agree with these points and still enjoy the album.
