This is the second album of Within Temptation; Once you have submitted in 1997 with "Enter" a very good debut, this disc contains three new songs, but have it in them. "The Dance", the eponymous song, is a dark, powerful love song (but no gentle ballad, do not be fooled!). Too bad that the video for the song is not going (to be found on the WT-DVD), because it fits perfectly with the eerie atmosphere of the piece. A little more organ accompaniment there in "Another Day", a slower piece with a wonderful chorus that brings Sharon's voice to its best advantage. The instruments have been very well mixed during the recording! This is followed by "The other half of me", in my opinion the strongest song with varying pace, which makes plenty of power and with strong melodies the odd frisson through the Mark! The other two songs on the CD are remixes that sound nice but are made carelessly and be prepare not too much joy to the connoisseurs of the originals. For the three new songs to the purchase of the album worthwhile but in any case! Conclusion: Best Angelic- / gothic metal from Holland in front of the soft rinsing to "The Silent Force" (which nevertheless is a very good album)!
