4 stars I really, really wish I could give this album 4.5/5. I really do. The music itself is perfect--the amazing blend of death metal, Dream Theater/Ayreon prog and countless other minor styles is nigh flawless. The only complaint, though serious, I can leverage against this album is that it is tiring. While the music is fine taken in its individual sections, listened to as a whole the album just isn't as epic as its sounds like it should be. This is the rare case where the sum of the parts is greater than the whole. While I want to stress that Kalisia's songwriting is of the highest caliber, this album just doesn't continue to sound like a masterpiece time after time. It is a fantastic listen, if you have the attention span to listen to it, and it certainly rewards those who give it a fair listen. But around the third time through the album, you'll find yourself looking at your watch. Still recommended highly.
