2 stars This is symphonic progressive rock mixed with a DISCO rhythm section. I can't give this record more than 2 stars because all this disco feel spoils an otherwise impressive piece of music.

I know many people tirelessly praise this double album. I think the whole concept is great, the performances and the use of the orchestra are really good, not to mention the cool music breaks here and there, sadly those disco rhythms are nothing but annoying. With a ROCK rhythm section not unlike The Alan Parsons Project this double disc could have been a masterpiece indeed...

If disco music doesn't bother you that much then you should give this record a try, else stay away.

Prosciutto | 2/5 |
