5 stars Probably my favorite Fates ablum, for many reasons. First you have the entire concept album thing going on, an that's always good in my book. Second, the parts flow well and are not too much of one instrument. Not too many keys, and when you start to get sick of them the guitar takes over, and when you get sick of that, Joey Vera starts to run some simple yet very feeling bass lines on you. A big bonus is Kevin Moore on keys. This particular mix of musicians is VERY TIGHT, although as a whole Fates Warning has never had problems with that, and I give the MVP award to Mark Zonder on this record. He pulls some amazing stuff on this one. But all the musicians on this album are top notch, and I highly recommend this one.

Oh and at the end of the CD theres a cool surprise if you let it run...
