5 stars Incredible record! Should be heard by all metal-interests who also like symphonic stuff! You will hear on this album: Great orchestral arrangements, heavy riffing, great piano and superbly vocals by Jon "Mountain King" Oliva! This album started a new genre: Dramatic metal! There are still tracks like "Of Rage and War", "She's in Love", "Thorazine Shuffle" and "The Unholy" which are 100 % power metal, but stand-outs are the title track and the both incredible ballads "When the Crowds are Gone" and "Summer's Rain". So old fans and new will be very rewarded with this masterpiece, which is a definitive must!
