3 stars I thought this album on par with the previous one, originally, but as time passes, then I found it much more boring and tedious, and much less emotionally touching and moving. Then I realized that I was not listening to this album under the right frame of mind. It is a fantastic album, with a great concept and lyrics, and good musicianship and songwriting to top it off.

Please realize that this album is not for all proggers - only those who have appreciation for a soft, classically influenced style of music. Indeed much of this album is classical music. And even for those who love classical, this album is very boring and slow (particularly disc 2). The compositions of these songs are very well done, and creative, with slow, drawn out, emotional sections, as well as faster sections (Le Premier Ciel). There is a strong atmosphere made with this album, though. It's true the musicians aren't virtuosos or incredibly technically skilled such as ELP or Rush, but they are capable of writing much better than most bands. Do not simply dismiss this album simply because the lyrics are sung in a language not your own. It is very beautiful and should not be missed simply because of language.

Shakespeare | 3/5 |
