Glorious Collision = Limited Digipack = (CD)
Glorious Collision is a fairly apt title as it is definitely a collision of the music and bands that inspired both Englund and Zander (who wrote the majority of the songs). Ranging from prog to classical, metal to classic rock and yes, even 80's AOR, it's all in there but all in the Evergrey signature sound. I really admire the fact that Evergrey isn't afraid to incorporate new influences to their albums. The fact that they can keep these influences within the scope of what the band's supposed to sound like is a testament to their song-writing prowess. Many, more popular, bands could not accomplish this. My mistake, of course, in putting Glorious Collision on in the background was that the layers are so subtle you don't always notice them until afterward. There is a point in 'To Fit the Mold' at about 4 minutes in, for example, where a little bit of symphonic strings pops up and if you weren't listening, you'd miss it. Your brain tells you that something was there but...it's a pretty good trick on Evergrey's part: it keeps you coming back to listen over and over. Better than backmasking, that's for sure! Limited digipack with one bonus track.
