5 stars I didn't expect after Mit there would be anything new, but then there was... Synopsis! Amazing stuff, as QLS describes in their nice artworked booklet: an 'evolution with a special emphasis on the past styles'. I don't know if they worked 10 years like Boston to secure their quality, but it could well be: this is not only classical, operatic and melodic in quiet and fierce waves as we know it from the band, this is also their best production until now. Of course, the Italian English is still there (and I love it) and the something 'raw' in their performance, as well known from earlier albums too, but it isn't too obvious anymore. And I says, if you need to start, start with this album, you'll have the most accessable of QLS's discography. There's no bad song, the first is an instrumental rock fugue, I can't tell if it's technically right, but it sounds like that. It's proof right in the beginning where this band is capable of. My favorite, I have to confess, is at the end: the Moses epic (15 minutes), walking with the music amongst the pyramides, angry screeming at the Pharaoh and at last into the open dessert. It took me some time to get this album (via the website in the end), but it was worth the waiting. This album will stand the test of time: all stars, not because there are no weak parts, but because the repeat button asks for it.
