5 stars Welcome to the show....

The Wake of Magellan is Another one of Savatage's Rock Operas. This album, much like all of Savatage and their later day material, is quite mood affecting. where Dead Winter Dead was very dark and dramatic, this album builds upon that and evens out the rock and opera a bit. I will say that I like Dead Winter Dead, and Streets more that this one, but that does not keep The Wake of Magellan from being a rock opera masterpiece. Again, the vocals are superb and dramatic, the instrument playing is solid, a mix between furthering the story and expressing emotion. There are no wank fests here, and the guitarist is quite restrained at times. Not that eh is unable to let loose a flurry of frantic notes, he chooses not to to further the mood and story, more adequately. The story is interesting, and much refreshing compared to some of the cliche concepts that plague most prog metal. Highly recommended, as is all Savatage material!
