Excellent album but...
on 7 February 2008
I can only agree with Strato666.
In fact I was about to start just the same: this album is NOT a metal opera and there is no physical continuity between the tracks.
At first you can be a bit disappointed an after a few listenings... you just can't get it out of your player !
Great technicality, good rhythm, good lyrics, slow, speed, everything you can expect from Tobias Sammet !
So why just an average mark ?
Well for the simple reason that 2 out of the 12 tracks is already featured in the previous album !!! (Lost in Space is even featured 4 times over the last 3 cds).
I mean, having these tracks as bonus on the limited edition, I would understand but part of the album... Sounds a bit cheap Toby !
I definitely recommend this album to the Edguy and Avantasia Fans,
For the others, you'd better start with The Metal Opera albums and Lost in Space part 1 or 2.
