4 stars This second album of Arena is good, but not like the previous one. This time the idea along the tracks of the album is related to mythology, specially greek. Basically, the band continues the sound of "Songs of the Lions Cage" but if I have to say something, I must tell the sound is some heavier, rocker. Sounds like a mixture between Marillion and Rush, but this is just an image to reflex the idea. The Pink Floyd influences, however, are still present. For this album, Arena changed the singer (a problem of all the career of the band), but he sounds similar to Fish one more time (irony: Pointer left Marillion because of discussions with Fish). Even when the album has not got the excellence of the first one, two of the best songs of Arena are here: "Medusa" and "Sirens". The second of them is the last one among the tracks and one more time it is a perfect close for the album, a 13 minutes duration epic. The rest of the songs "Crying for Help" are here (V, VI, VII y VIII) and one more time just one of them has got words.
