5 stars Here is another big adventure in the world of Unexpect, where you can expect the unexpect... Every twist in theirs songs is like a big surprise, metal meet jazz, circus music, classical in a atmosphere impossible to describe. The sounds are jumping right off the instruments, like a joyful dance. The music is going in many directions, but the melody is there, in a way that no one band can do. This band is a heavier version of Diablo Swing Orchestra and Estradasphere with the proportion of a big metal opera. Their music is at times joyful and light, violent and dark in the same song. The use of death vocals are done in a way that it goes perfectly with the music without ruining the melody. The vocals are like another intrument that give new dimension to the songs. The use of violin is interesting here, but not as much as the bass, guitar and drum playing who he's incredible. To appreciate this music, you have to pay attention to details, and not doing something else while you put this cd on. if you are looking for someting different, with a lot of insanity and imagination, you will love this band. After listening to this cd many times, i don't know if i will be able to appreciate Dream Theater again...
