Epica – The Quantum Enigma

  1. I like Epica. Similar to Brian as he mentioned, I have really only listened to their albums from The Divine Conspiracy and on. Of the 4 Epica albums I have listened to, I am going to say that The Quantum Enigma is my second favorite behind The Divine Conspiracy. One problem that most Epica albums seem to have is that they are generally too long. The Quantum Enigma could have benefited from cutting some of the fat from it. That’s a part of why Nick thinks that they overdo the female choruses – there’s just too much music on this album, of which those choruses are a large part of the album. If they cut out a few of those songs that focused on the female chorus singing, the album would be better for it. Fortunately in this digital age, I can do just that and make a playlist of about 8 songs from the album and enjoy it much more. One thing that The Quantum Enigma lacks is a killer ballad. The Divine Conspiracy has the song “Chasing the Dragon”, and Requiem for the Indifferent has the song “Delirium”, which are both awesome ballads. On The Quantum Enigma, the song “Canvas of Life” tries to be that killer ballad but it just isn’t as good as those on the other Epica albums.
