5 stars One of the greatest albums of all time simply put. This album is amazing and makes a huge advancement over their first, still great album, SMPTe. This album includes progressive metal influances on Stranger in Your Soul and Duel With The Devil, while Suite Charlotte Pike has a Beatle sound almost identical to the Abbey Road Medley. The title track a nice soothing melody of Neal Morse's and is a great song nonetheless.

Duel With The Devil 5/5, a great epic that has traces of Dream Theater in it all the way to The Beatles. It consists of wonderful harmonies and wonderful use of the organ.

Suite Charlotte Pike 5/5, a nice proto-prog song that is designed to sound like the Abbey Road medley. (Notice the name, Abbey Road and Suite Charlotte Pike's titles both refer to the road the recording studios are on. It's sort of telling you it will sound like The Beatles).

Bridge Across Forever 5/5, the shortest song on the album, but it still manages to keep up pretty well. While it's not quite as good as We All Need Some Light on the last album, it's still a great song.

Stranger in Your Soul 5/5, here it is. The closer on the album. The grand finale. The 2nd greatest song of all time (it's closely behind Supper's Ready). This song is an amazing song that almost nothing can even compare to. From the famous Strings opeing to the awesome guita solos, this song is by far the greatest song on the album, and TA's best song. (I saw this live at 3RP, and it was AWESOME!!!!).

Overall, you need to buy this album. There is not a single flaw noticeable, and is a must buy for anyone who likes prog even the slightest bit.

J-Man | 5/5 |
