5 stars This might be the best SYMPHONIC PROG CD of the 3'rd millenium so far! The opening is stunnign chatedrelic majesty of harmonies. The music is fresh and comes deep from the players souls. It is completely original and yet I find my self enjoying like I did when I heard the lamb by Genesis the first time. There is complete structure and every note seems to be in the right place. The guitar riffs are like those in lamb that really move the music forward. The first sounds of the lead guitar take me to same ecstasy as dis David Gilmour with his guitar in Wish you were here.

The rest is pure pleasure all the way to the last note. This is a masterpiece and I burst into tears as I listen to it. Same thing happends with Beethovens ninth symphony and Brahms Violin concerto.

To call this metal is an insult to great music.

No less that five stars! If you don't have this already get your copy at first place!
