5 stars An absolute masterpiece.

For a long time I identified Snow as my "second favorite album ever" (behind Ayreon's THE). I don't think I could say that's still the case, but that doesn't mean the album is any less good!

It's impossible for me to do a track by track (just too many songs) but I will say that in my opinion there is not a weak moment on the album. From the beautiful and spare opening of "Made Alive" to the rocking "Devil's Got My Throat" to the emotional "I Will Go" and the stellar finale of "Made Alive/WInd at My Back," this is an album that keeps the listener engaged (both emotionally and intellectually) throughout all of its almost 2 hours of music.

This album gets compared a lot to Tommy and The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway, and it's not a bad description of the album to say that it sounds like a combination of those with a lot of classic prog influence (GG, Genesis, etc.) thrown in as well. This is easily the most consistent SB album, and one that every prog fan should here.

Absolutely recommended.
