One the strenth of 'Church of the Machine' and 'Through the Looking Glass' alone this album would be worth getting. Both of these are amazing epics that can be listened to again and again. Also, 'Orion the Hunter' is an innovative song a-typical of Symphony X and it's another song that I keep coming back to listen to. Lady of the Snow is admittedly not as good as Candlelight Fantasia from their previous album, The Divine Wings of Tragedy, but it is still good. The songwriting of Thomas Miller and Michael Romeo, (and Pinella), is superb on this album. It is the last album of Symphony X's with Thomas Miller and in my opinion it is the high point of Symphony X. Without focussing on the album being a little short because of being released soon after the previous album, and focussing on individual songs, here is Symphony X's amazing sound at its absolute peak. Interestingly, the epic intended for the album that never made the album in time, 'Twilight in Olympus', later morphed into the album V.
