Wow, this is a big project. Really big. This was predictable: Clive Nolan simply cannot do anything and the bands he was in never released a double album. The time has come for the busiest man of the last decade.

If you love rock/metal operas, this will be Christmas for you. There's plenty, and I mean it, of material to get into. Divided in 2 acts, the whole plot is clear, the music is sparkling clear, the production is's like the whole thing was done with Mr. Clean. Crytallic material designed to hit hard and impress by it's grandeur.

The music won't let you down as Clive never released an half-assed product. This is no exception, this is straight in the path of Arena's Opera Fanatica: Dramatic-Victorian-19th century-Night at the opera. Oh, and underline the word victorian with a Sharpie. For the fans of the classical/metal style, you will drool!

Big voices, great voices (including a surprisingly good Clive Nolan himself), huge choruses, huge violins lines, immense keyboard and crash cymbals. One thing though: I heard it before in the Hounds of Baskerville. With more bombastic textures, this is mostly the same approach.

I snatch a star off because of the repetition of the House of Baskerville and the whole thing is just soooo long. Apart from that, you have fantastic replay value, dramatic ambience and a guaranteed trip back in London in 1870.

The whole nine yards.
