4 stars Fantastic release - deserves both titles: 1) Best Austrian prog of all time; 2) One of 2013's top prog albums. The level of arrangements is simply outstanding. The vocal parts and orchestral stuff is exemplary. A great album to buy and enjoy again and again - I really found it uber-fun, couldn't get eough of it, and some of the melodies keep haunting me everywhere I go. The only problem I had was with the actual storyline, which I found weak. I can forgive the Austrian accent, but the opera goes nowhere (nothing happens). I got the PDF booklet which was easy to read, but still didn't like the dramatic turn of events. However, it doesn't hurt the music itself, which is fabulous. Gerald Peter did awesome work here, he desrves a lot of credit. I would really want to get a DVD of the concert. And you know what they say in German: "Dieses Album wird in den Arsch treten".
