5 stars This is an excellent CD! Two discs with music keeping you intersted through more than a 100 minutes of rock-opera. Plenty of synth breaks with differing synth voices - neat and tidy tunes build up the experience and some very catchy ones remain in your head after you have listened. Some of the tracks have the medieval jaunty feel that appear on other compositions by Lucassen. I enjoy the interplay between the male and female singing - you have to like the vocals or else this would not be for you. I can hear lots of stuff that reminds me of Focus. At least one riff is very like Sabbath and there is a bit of Growling by the Opeth front man. There is also a bit of Floydy influence drifting in at several points, and part 13 reminds me of Steve Hackett. Overall a very good effort and should be in a prog fans collection - is this essential, I reckon so,
