4 stars I finally own the album and have listened to it a couple of time. I must say that this is one of the best buy you can do in this particular moment. Well, this a neo prog stuff deeply focused on the mainstream of classic prog supergroups, particulary Genesis. This is due to Guerin voice so similar to Peter Gabriel one, but anyway is well played, musicians are all very good and the final result is really great. If you hear to the music you will find a lot of echoes of previous historical operas, but more than this you could find may interesting points of interest. And the "plus" of the matter are Holdsworth solos: this jazz-jazz/rock-fusion guitarist worked very good inside of K2, offering a high level range of performances and variety of tastes and feelings. Rio Okumoto virtuoso job on keyboards is good as well and last but not least i have to mention Jaquess bass, always adding the right atmospheres to all the work. The highest point in the the album is the long, epic, various Chapter one - Infinty Voyage but really the entire Book of the Dead is a good effort and a fantastic debut for this supergroup that i will expect now to the second step....hoping to find once more a beatiful surprise like this one. Don't esitate, if you like symphonic prog, classical progressive music, this is a must. Reccomended
