5 stars Masterpiece of progressive heavy metal! Although there are some influences of Iron Maiden or Megadeth on this album, I hear that Savatage is completely different to those bands. Their music is very epic, often with fantastic synthesizers (listen to "Commisar" or beautiful "Morphine Child"), the vocalist is amazing, he is the narrator of this story... This album takes me to the era of Edgar Allan Poe, some lirycs and generally the concept seem to be inspired by this classical horror author... Within very good tracks, my favourites are "Morphine Child" (the longest and most beautiful track on this album, it reminds me Deep Purple's "Child In Time", I love the choirs at the ending) and "Man In The Mirror" (I love the lyrics and the instrumental passage). Brilliant album!
