4 stars I purchased this album recently and I was totally amazed. All that is great in prog is in this album and as always Wakey is simply a genius. His compositions, his virtuosity and his performance are all superb. I have no idea why so many people hate this album and trash it every time they can, which was one of the reasons I didn't buy the album a long time ago. Both of the tracks are great and especially the second which presents one of the greatest combinations, IMHO, of baroque, symphonic prog and rock. This album could have got 5 stars easily, the only problem is that the concept is lacking. When the story line is being read the music simply stops or played silently and it happens just when the music reaches the climax. A whole star is deducted for this critical error and Wakey could have learned more in this section from Camel with the Snow Goose. Other than that this album is a great achievement in all aspects. If you love symphonic prog you wont be disappointed
