Prog Reviewer
1 stars The review of this album is one of the easiest I had to do so far. Even if this album clocks at over seventy minutes. And between us, this is was an extremely painful and long exercise.

This "concept" album is built around the Tolkien trilogy and again it is absolutely not on par with the story. The band is trying to deliver his own interpretation but this is a totally useless album.

The pace is set with an absolutely poor "overture" as "Shadows Of The Past" which is totally in-line with the rest of the album. At best, there are some extremely scarce good keyboards parts which are fully ELP oriented. These are maybe clocking at a maximum of three to four minutes.

Unfortunately! Besides these, there is NOTHING else to expect. A universe of boredom, that's what is available.

The rating? Hummm. Let's see. One star? Yes, one star. This album is really a P.I.T.A. No highlights (nor even a good song) whatsoever. Still, it is one of the best ever game to be played: to press next from track one to seventeen in a minimum amount of time.
