5 stars Wow, what an album!

This is my second review on the site. I'm going to keep it rather short, and focused. First of all, I believe the movie is a way better way for one to experience this masterpiece. The symbolic images seen in the film, watching the main character evolve, and the one of a kind animations going with some of the songs are magnificent.

Now, for the album itself. Each track is great on its own. Some track are musically better. Some tracks help the story progress better then the others, and some are very good in both aspects. But the whole point of the album is not just great songs, it's about telling the story. Using latimotifes and other artistic tools to make the songs tell the story, both lyrically and musically. After understanding the album much or less. Your mind will be blown again and again when listening to some of the key tracks in the album such as In The Flesh (with and without the ?), Goodbye Cruel World, Nobody Home, Run Like Hell-Waiting For The Worms-Stop-The Trial.

This is a one of a kind album, and obviously gets 5 stars from me, this should be reviewed as one piece and not a collection of songs.

It's hard to put down to words how great this album really is. I just ask you to listen to it a few times, read an analysis of the album if you don't quite get it after a while, watch the movie, and most importantly, enjoy it.
