It hasn't turned out to be the much expected "Live Legacy", but the title "The Expedition" could barely have been better chosen for KAMELOT's trip into the "old world" anno 2000.
Their tour through Germany and its surroundings states in spring once more has proven that the sympathetic quartet (plus VANDEN PLAS' GŁnter Werno as guest) from States-side is in the forefront of progressive Power Metal of this time.
Some notorious grumblers surely will miss the one or the other song off the first two albums "Eternity" and "Dominion", but be honest: To get all their classics into the set they would have had to do three-hour-concerts each evening. But as CRIMSON GLORY had been the headliners, KAMELOT had to concentrate more or less onto the songs of the latest output "The Fourth Legacy". And the majority of those brilliant songs can be found on "The Expedition", which had been recorded in Germany and Greece. All who missed the chance to see the band live, this is your opportunity to catch up!
There also are three bonus-tracks on this CD. Apart from the not really exciting instrumental "We Three Kings", there is another previously unreleased song, the acoustic-ballad "One Day" and a re-recording of "We Are Not Separate". Value for money, I would say. Soundwise you cannot complain either and visually the fat and richly illustrated booklet leaves nothing to be desired.
