Good album. The song "After Eden", "Destination unknown", "Magnolia", "Neverending", "Snow falling" simply excellent. They are a very long time on repeat. Disc design is also wonderful. Thanks!

This album might lack its own theme, just might, but it actually has a wide range of different genres and definitely has some of Kalafina's best songs. None of Kalafina's albums really concentrate on album flow, and in every album they have very different genres just "thrown in", but that's because they are an experimental group. This might be a bit different album from them, but all of the songs are work of pure gold. This album is certainly in my opinion the best of this year, and plus, it's easier to get into than their earlier works. Buy it? Most certainly.
While Seventh Heaven and Red Moon had their own distinctive flavour and theme, After Eden fails to bring that punch which fans have come to expect from Kalafina by now. What it sounds like is simply an assembly of their better B-sides throughout the era, with very haphazard and amateur performances by the singers in some of the tracks. Definitely not the Kalafina I know, and not the one I want to hear from now on. They can do better, and people who purchase this while banking on their consistency over the years deserve better.
