4 stars I used to be very fond of this double album when it was released because of the line-up, music and the length. As time progressed, my opinion has deteriorated someway. 90 minutes is very long to stay focused to an album unless it is very good and cohesive. There is a lot of professionalism in it, especially thanks to Lucassen's guitar playing and keyboard masters Wakeman, Emerson and Rudess joining the boat. Vocals are less famous with the exception of Wetton. While music is better than average, the album suffers by having too many short tracks that don't help staying focused. If I should pick one instrumental track, listen to Number 7 with Rudess or Emerson giving a killer synth or Moog solo.
