Win­ter In Eden Court Of Conscience

Fire­streak Me­dia

This five-piece band from the North of Eng­land shows that we’re as good as any when it comes to sym­phonic rock. Court Of Conscience is the band’s third al­bum and ar­guably their best to date. Vicky John­son pro­vides driv­ing and melodic vo­cals over the solid, down-tuned and dirty rock band that is the core of Win­ter In Eden. And although it’s not a new trick by any means, they show that they have the genre firmly in their grasp. For this al­bum they are aided and abet­ted by the su­perb pro­duc­tion and mix­ing tal­ents of Ruud Jolie and Ste­fan Helle­blad re­spec­tively, who are also re­spon­si­ble for the recorded sound of Within Temp­ta­tion. They are ob­vi­ously a great choice as the over­all sound here is huge. As with all big pro­duc­tion rock al­bums, it’s hard to pick out best songs and there’s lit­tle in the way of ex­posed gui­tar so­los but what there is works well. Check out Be­fore It Be­gan and the riffy in­tro to Or­der Of Your Faith. All in all, a tight, var­ied and en­ter­tain­ing al­bum from an ex­cel­lent band.
