Continuing the softer sound of Moving Target, Paradox is simply brilliant. It has to be listened to from start to finish to be appreciated, since it works so well as an album. Royal Hunt's always strong backing vocals are even better on Paradox, and the performance is stunning. "Message to God," "Long Way Home," and "It's Over" are the best songs, but the transition from "Silent Scream" to "It's Over" is the best moment on this Royal Hunt masterpiece.
