5 stars This was the first Vanden Plas album I heard. After the first song I heard, it just blew me away.

I know that the rest of the album tracks would be just as awesome as the first, and after listening to the whole album, I fell in love with Vanden Plas. No doubt, this band is one of the best prog metal groups, both vocally and musically, you can listen to today.

When you listen to the album, you feel sucked into the story, even though you have no idea what's it about. As the tracks play, you feel as if you were in a theater, watching an opera - the singing by Andy Kuntz sweeps you away, and the melting guitar solo's take you to another world.

I could not stop listening to this album for 3 weeks straight, and I'm talking about playing it 2 times a day EVERY day. there's just something so... special, and magical in it.

The way Andy Kuntz sings, is so persuading - maybe because he wrote almost all the lyrics by himself. He and all the other band members sound like they really enjoy what they're doing, and that is very important when creating a prog metal album.

As a closure, I would like to point this album out as the best Vanden Plas album, and a MUST for any prog metal fan with a high quality taste.

4.8/5, only because there is no such thing as the perfect album, or the perfect anything for that purpose - but this album has gotten damn close.
