5 stars These Colossus/Musea projects are UNDER ESTIMATED SO MUCH. Wow...Jeeze, it blows my mind that only 4 (5 with myself included) have so far rated this album.

This 2 CD [i]EPIC[/i] story of the Colossus of Rhodes is a musical journey in through your ears, and out through your soul. Each track is layered with beautiful sounds and textures, that recreate the adventures that take place around [i]The Seventh Progressive Wonder[/i]. This is simply a must have, each band has devoted as much effort into each song as they usually would for an entire album.

There are no weak tracks in my opinion, just changes of style. The main style used here is Italian Symphonic Rock, but it varies a bit. The most beautiful track on the entire album is the first one, Un Pensiero e Sempre Libero by Leviathan. But if you aren't in the mood to listen to beautiful melodies, switch to my favourite ROCKIN' track, Lords And Knights by Velvet Desperados.

This is simply a MUST HAVE, along with most of the other Colossus/Musea productions (Especially; Odyssey, The Greatest Tale, my favourite!)

If you like GOOD PROG, buy this, enjoy this, love this magnificent [b]masterpiece[/b] of Progressive Rock.
