Ancient Dreams' is not the best Candlemass album, though it might contain the most perfectly realised songs of the band's career. Mirror Mirror' is a VERY strong opener, but is superseded three times as the best song on the album . If those two nasty songs mentioned above were removed from the release (at least from disc 1), 'Ancient Dreams' would contain 7 songs and be 45 minutes long, which is plenty of time for a doom metal album, especially when the songs are as well developed as they are here.
