5 stars First of all, I'd like to start out by saying that this is my first encounter with Mind's Eye Clearly every member is extremely talented at their craft. The vocals can be harsh and soothing at the very same moment. The singer really displays his versatility here.

Right off the get go, you immediatly get the feeling that your in for an epic journey, through your mind's eye. When the introduction is over, and the instruments kick in, you get the sense that your watching a great movie epic, in your mind. Father please forgive my sins still makes me shiver. Right away its nearly impossible not to fall in love with the vocals. The level of originality here really doesn't help me make refrences to other groups, so I won't even try. Track 2 Seven days is where the 'metal' side of the music is brought fourth. And what music it is! Full of interesting rythems, emotional lyrics. It's amazing how even though I don't quite understand the entire story from the lyrics alone, It still brings heart ache. It's touching, especially nearing the end of the Album. track 8 the hour of need is a short 2 and a half minute masterpeice that starts the lighter portion of the album (not that there isn't still harsh, metal sections) its during this track, that you realize that this isn't just any old Metal album. This is progressive rock with metal qualities at this finest. And with an epic closing track like Pandora's Musical Box the album is consistant, from beginning to end. Full of complex rythems, interesting melodies, and a story (more deeply understood, with every listen) that deserves to be listened to, by even the most Prog-metal weary music goers. Folks, this IS music, this IS prog. I challenge you to get lost in this Masterpiece.

5 out of 5 stars for being without flaws.
