Esta reseña será muy breve ya que el disco por si solo habla de su calidad y cualquier cosa que diga sale de sobra, Of Faith, Power & Glory es ya el séptimo álbum en la carrera de estos irlandeses con base en Inglaterra, y acerca de su sonido no hay mucho que decir, dado que es muy característico y no hay muchos artistas con quienes se les pudiera confundir.

Para este álbum VNV Nation nos ofrece un disco muy bien balanceado y tal y como una vez ya lo prometió, el disco presenta una mezcla entre los discos “Matter & Form” y “Judgement” con algunos pequeños toques a lo “Prise the fallen”” y que se puede apreciar en la abridora “Pro-Victoria”, luego de este track, el dúo ataca con todo con “Sentinel”, a partir de este momento ya no se te da un solo respiro, ya que los siguientes temas vienen por la misma línea, “Tomorrow Never comes” que es el track que la banda estuvo tocando en vivo en la gira “Judgement” como adelanto de su nuevo disco nos recuerda aquel no menos glorioso “Futureperfect” mientras “Great Divide” aun y cuando nos puede remontar a “Matter and form” la verdad es que sigue manteniendo la estructura musical de las piezas de “Futureperfect”, a mi parecer uno de los mejores tracks del disco junto a “Defiant” y la bellísima “Where there is light” con la que cierra el disco, el resto del álbum ya ni los mencionamos porque realmente ningún track es malo, hasta hoy todos los discos de VNV Nation me han parecido muy buenos y este no es la excepción, pero si alguien me preguntara en este momento cual es mi álbum favorito después del imprescindible “Empires” sin duda nombraría este “Of Faith, Power & Glory”, se vislumbra un futuro perfecto para VNV Nation si continuan por este camino.


This review it will be very brief because the album by itself speaks about his quality, "Of Faith, Power and Glory" is already the seventh album in their career of these Irishes with base in England, and about his sound isn't too much to say, because they have a very typical sound and there are no many artists with who it was possible to confuse them.

For this album VNV Nation offers us a very well balanced disc and as once already he promised, the disc presents a mixture between the discs “ Matter and Form ” and "Judgement “ with some little touches of “ Prise the fallen” ” and that can to appreciate in the opener “ Pro-victoria “, after this track, the duo attacks with everything with “ Sentinel “, from this moment they already doesn't give you any chance to breather, because the following tracks come in the same line, “ Tomorrow Never Comes ” what is the track that the band was touching Live in the tour “ Judgement “ as advance of his new album inmediately reminds us the not less glorious "Futureperfect" meanwhile “ Great Divide “ even and when it can remind us to “ Matter and form ” Actually i feel that they it keeps the musical structure of the pieces of “ Futureperfect “, to me one of the best tracks of the disc along is “ Defiant “ and the beautifully “ Where there is light ” the track that closes the album, the rest of the CD i'm already don't even mention them because really no one track is bad, and till today all the discs of VNV Nation have seemed to me very good and this one is not the exception, but if someone was asking me in this moment which is my favourite album after the essential "Empires" undoubtedly would name this “ Of Faith, Power and Glory ”, Glimpses a perfect future for VNV Nation if they continue for this way.
