5 stars This is just such a fantastic album.

It's just so over-the-top, balls out brilliance. Not in a musical wankery way, but in a way that perfectly captures the best sci-fi movies. Almost every song is based on a famous sci-fi film or TV series, from Star Wars to 2001: A Space Odyssey. There's no pretension here, just a group of fantastic musicians having a good time.

And what a group of musicians. Starting with the vocalists: we have Russell Allan, Damian Wilson and Dan Swano taking the main roles, all on top form. Floor Jansen takes control of the female vocals, which are used to great effect. Then of course the instrumentalists: Arjen himself is incredible as always, as well as Ed Warby and Erik Norlander, amongst others.

If you like progressive-metal then this really is an absolute must. Every song is brilliant in its own right, from the hyperbole of Intergalactic Space Crusaders to the slow building, dramatic Starchild. Buy this now!
