5 stars First of all, I would like to thank Fabio Zuffanti, not only for putting out a great album like this, but for releasing it in English as well as Italian. I know I'm in the vast minority regarding RPI, but I much prefer English vocals to the Italian. I love the symphonic sounds of many RPI bands, but am often completely turned off by the over-emotive, theatrical vocals(not the actual language, though). The singer here is the great Allesandro Corvaglia, who sings beautifully in English, as he did on last year's "Rime of the Ancient Mariner" by Hostsonaten, another Zuffanti project.

As for the music, it is fantastic. The compositions, arrangements, and musicianship are all first class. And liberal use of the mellotron choir only enhances the experience. All in all one of my top 5 albums for 2013.
