5 stars This album is by far the best arena album ever, there is not a bad track from start to finish, which makes it a solid album throughout and worth every penny. The opening track chosen is a nice explosive way to start an album, followed by the lovely accoustics of waiting for the flood. And then by far the best prog track on the album the butterfly man. Then a couple of shorties and a massive track called moviedrome which does seem to lose its way a bit but makes up for it in the end. Then to end it all, the lovely ballad fridays dream.

Arena comes across here as a cross between Queensryhche and Marrillion and i'm pretty sure the accoustics in waiting for the flood is nicked from silent lucidity. But never the less i'm all for this cause I love prog music, and what the heck Marrilion ripped off Genesis and still sounded great. It's great to see there are still great bands out there making prog music still, and I hope that arena stay in this fashion and not go off the track into some other adventure like genesis when they became Phil Collins.
