5 stars Once upon a time there was some writing on the wall we all ignored, Until the time when there was war and feasts of famine at our door.

WOW! There is not one other album I have ever heard that lyrically matches this album. Never have I felt I was actually trapped inside an album. A horrifyingly beautiful piece of artwork. And to add to the geniusly crafted lyrics the amazing symphonic parts of the album. Well played all around. "Doomsday Afternoon" beats out Ayreon's "The Human Equation" or Transatlantic's "The Whirlwind" any day of the week! There is only two things though that don't make since to me about this album. Why are some of the names of the songs Microdeath Softstar or Candybrain? But whatever, they still sound good. Also how is this Crossover Prog. This is clearly symphonic.

Overall a brilliant album! The only way Phideaux could make this album more real is if it it actually happened. So buy/download "Doomsday Afternoon" now! This album is not the greatest of all time but certainly belongs in my top 5 of the new century. 99% essential.
