Ten is my favourit band since i heard The Name Of The Rose in 1997, and i think "The Twilight Chronicles" is the best album they have recorded since then. It has everything a ten fan expect from Gary's band. It's epic, heavy and melodic at the same time. It's a mixture of the sound of X, TNOR and Spellbound. Buy it, you won't be disappointed.

From: Buho Date: September 15, 2006 at 17:00
Just one more thing. Where i said Spellbound, i wanted to say The Robe. This album has nothing to do with Spellbound.

From: roxas Date: September 24, 2006 at 0:03
Brilliant. Just listen to the incredible melody during "Rome is now.." Can't imagine a Ten fan not liking this. I came on board in 99 so I haven't gotten the first 3 deep rooted in my blood, thus I cant place this album yet in the order. Noticed some new interesting "effects" on the guitars, it works well. It has everything you'd expect including the signature "wow, another amazing ballad! how does he do it". lol. Get's better and better with each spin..."done my time in oblivion, you and I...."

I quite like this one ! I mean, they haven't invented anything new, but there are some damn fine melodies. I think this is one of their better releases.

From: Geoff Date: November 22, 2006 at 23:44
I must be alone with my thoughts on this one. I thought the production was mid-90's indie quality and the songs aren't much better, IMO. The same tired formula seems to have run it's course with me and I couldn't get into any one of these songs. I've been a big fan of Ten for along time, except for 'Spellbound' and these last 2 studio albums. Too samey, nothing new and the quality, to me, appears to be deteriorating. Sad to say, but I would not recommend this one.

Vinny is not back yet,but the new Album is nearly perfect. Ten is in all these years,the most consistence Band ever ! Can`t praise the boys high enough ! Rock on !!!

From: juan carlos Date: December 7, 2006 at 20:44
Nada despreciable album, épico, sinfónico, sentimental.. pues hay de todo claro que si aún les sigues el rastro. Cierto es que también me parece exagerado el hacer un disco de mas de 70 minutos. Bueno, para algunos les puede llegar a aburrir pero tiene sus detalles que hace que no sea tanto así, se lo ha elaborado mucho al parecer Hughes y eso vale aunque no hace una obra para llamarla "clásica" en mi opinión. Muy épico comienzo pero que de verdad no aburre y me mantiene atento en todo momento..

From: juan carlos Date: December 7, 2006 at 20:57
.. muy buen coro, bien melódico. "The Chronicles" es mi favorita del disco, todo un clásico de Ten. Decaen en "The Elysian Fields" paso. En "Hallowed Ground" lo hubieran hecho mas corto, es bueno el tema pero como que cansa. "This Heart Goes On" es la baladaza del disco, típica Ten y otra clásica. "Oblivion" es otro tema mas en plan AOR, muy bueno y mi tercera favorita. El resto esta ok, nada mal. Producción aceptable y Hughes que es el alma del equipo. Aceptable. 8.6/10

From: Axe-Machine Date: December 30, 2006 at 18:04
This album is brilliant. The last album was immense, and this has the same amount of class, but reverts the the more epic mode that Ten made their own on Spellbound, Name of the Rose and The Robe. From the opening strains of "The citadel under siege again", I knew this was gonna be a great album, and was not disappointed. The likes of 'Rome', 'Oblivion', 'Tourniquet' and 'The Chronicles' all hit the spot in a most satisfying way, and this is certainly one of my favourites of 2006. Excellent!

From: squares Date: July 4, 2009 at 17:08
Anyboby have the lyrics for "the chronicles"?

From: AOR1 Date: January 22, 2010 at 10:55
Listening to this one now for the 3rd time in a row I can´t get into it. But I remembered some good critics here. So I checked them again. But the only post that really points out what I feel when listening to this songs is Geoffs. Too samey, nothing new - exactly what I feel about it. I like the first releases a lot but this one isn´t a must. Disappointing. 70/100.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: March 20, 2013 at 18:18
More of an epic release rather than labeling it melodic hard rock/AOR...epìc hard rock perhaps? ...anyway for fans of Ten this would be a wet dream in its all,something kinda different from what they've done musically talking in the past,for me it was just a good/interesting album but wouldn't slit my wrists 4 it(a matter of tastes,i guess)...about the songs i'd go for these ones:"Oblivion"(the only AOR track of the album),"The Twilight Masquerade","This Heart Goes On"(nice softy),"The Prologue/Rome"(epic!)& "The Chronicles"(epic!)...80/100
