Well, it indeed is the eighth album of the Germans already and as usual it will divide the Metal-scene.
But let's take a look at the whole thing. Just like on "Act Seven", we have the two vocal-styles of deathy and clean complementing each other, the CREMATORY-keyboards still have their place. But what strikes my mind is that the guitars partly have been tamed a lot and some electronic influences are obvious.
What in the beginning sounds like a change for the worse only starts to grow as you listen to it more often, still who has hated CREMATORY so far won't change his opinion with "Believe".
To check it out, take "Eternal", the slighly heavier and very varied "Caroline" (highlight of "Believe") and the ballad "Perils Of The Wind". But on the other side they really should habe scrapped the superfluous "Tears Of Time"-Remake "Time For Tears"...
A good album, but still quite a bit away from their heyday...
