Concept album or rock opera?,
This review is from: 01011001 (Audio CD)
This is surely a science fiction rock opera. Different characters, different singers. The music is certainly grandiose, lush, powerful, very very interesting and well worth a listen but...
Somehow it is antiseptic and lacking passion. Perhaps it is the fact that it takes many voices to tell the tale which causes the personal narrative to be lost.
On reflection I would have preferred a single narrator/singer telling the story, which would have made more impact on me. I don't know if there is enough here to make me want to go out and seek the other albums so it's only a safe three stars for this one from me
