This album really is one of the all-time classics of heavy metal. I was dubious about the concept-album thing as a dedicated Metallica/Anthrax/Testament listener in the very early nineties, but this album changed my views. The emotions wrapped up in every song, the soaring, screaming guitars.. If you like heavy metal, you owe yourself this album!
That said, I still like Metallica, Anthrax, and Testament, and if you can't handle slower hair-metal, this album may be difficult for you to handle. It's definitely an earlier breed of metal, focusing on actual musical skill - Jon Oliva has a great singing voice (no incoherent bellowing in this album), Criss Oliva is an incredible guitarist who impressed even the best guitar players I've known.. This album is a class package, and every old-school metalhead I've hung out with respects it.
(I will admit if you're only a nu-metal bod, you may find this album rather disorienting. Power chords are not the driving force of this album. Go on though, TRY it!)

This is just one of all 14 releases being re-issued as a special digipak, which when stacked or lined up on the bookshelf with all the others as a complete set, the spines display the Savatage logo. Some albums contain bonus tracks (half of which were relased on previous re-issues in 1997 and 2002), and others contain brand new acoustic renditions of Savatage songs, by Jon Oliva.

However, there are a number of grievances I have about this set, which really hurt the integrity and overall quality of this latest incarnate of the Savatage library, things that cost this collection a full 5-stars (for EACH album) in my reviews...

First of all, these were released completely random and all out of chornological order (pretty stupid move, if you ask me), so anyone with mild OCD dispositions (like myself) may be tortured by having to make the choice between sorting them in their proper order, or in the mixed-up, re-released sequence, JUST to display the spines' logo "puzzle" correctly.

Secondly (and speaking of the spine-logo "puzzle"), while there are indeed only 14 studio albums from Savatage (including the mini-album/EP, THE DUNGEONS ARE CALLING), the first two albums (SIRENS, and the mini-album/EP THE DUNGEONS ARE CALLING) have been compiled together onto one CD, and entitled as "SIRENS & THE DUNGEONS ARE CALLING : The Complete Sessions".

So what is the 14th disc? Well, I didn't think there even WAS one, thinking the SIRENS and TDAC in a "twofer" format was still counted as "two spearate" albums.

Savatage have never failed to make a fantastic metal album, whilst this loosely a concept album it's no less brilliant. A story of a failed musician now an alcholic down an out "DT" Jesus and his life. Simple as that.
Chunky guitar riffing from the late Criss Oliva drives through the epic songs, deep lyrics from Jon Oliva wrapped around well crafted melodies. Songs like Tonight He Grins Again, Can You Hear Me Now and title track are storming metal songs with every musician playing a blinder.
Jon Oliva ranges from gritty screams to slow emotional singing,he is one of the few rock singers who can do both.
There isn't a bad song on here, they all hook you in and get in your head,my favourites are the double header of Soemwhere in time /Believe with it's hearfelt lyrics: "I'll be right here ,I'll never leave all I ask of you is believe".
Jon Oliva left the band not long after this album-although still does backing vocals now-after his brother Criss tragically died.This should stand as his finest hour. When rock and metal gets overlooked it's bad enough but when an album of this quality isn't heralded it's criminal. Buy every Savatage album please, start with this if you are unsure whether they are your thing; you like power metal you will love Savatage.

Streets: A Rock Opera was the sixth full-length studio album by the American Progressive Metal band Savatage. As you can probably tell from its title, the album is a concept album that is tied together by a singular narrative in which each song tells a part of the same story.

The story in question is based on a play called `Gutter Ballet' (which was also the title of the band's previous studio album with which some material here overlaps) written by the album's producer Paul O'Neil. It chronicles the life of a petty drug dealer who gains success as a rock star before loosing it all, trying to get it all back and who sees his friend murdered when his past comes back to haunt him.

Singer Jon Olivia masterfully expresses the emotions of the story's central character (named DT - `Down Town' or `Detox' - Jesus, depending on the flawed memory of another character) and the musicians are excellent at conveying the mood of each track as determined by the story (for example `Sam And Tex' is a faster, more anarchic track which reflects the fight which is occurring in the story).

Furthermore, Chris Oliva's guitar solos are absolutely out of this world. There are some seriously creative, impressive and expressive solos on this record that really elevate it to a whole other level musically.

If you are generally into the excesses of Prog Metal or even modern Prog-like music, and love the theatrics of albums like Metropolis Pt. 2, Operation: Mindcrime or the whole Amory Wars series then this should almost certainly be of some interest for you. It flows very differently than a lot of other concept albums seem to however, and is already pretty interesting on that structural level alone.
