Dystopia is an unbelievable good album, best Iced Earth album since… hm… Dark Saga? I’m saying this because their latest efforts were very poor IMO. After some mediocre albums with Tim Owens the return of Barlow on The Crucible of Man was even worse because of the great expectations I had. But now it seems that Schaffer has found the lost inspiration together with the new vocal. Stu Block is a very good replacement, I hear in his voice a Barlow/Owens mix that fits very well the Iced Earth sound.
