4 stars This album is an excellent addition to any fan of prog-metal or prog-rock. It is a concept album of the biblical end times, and the story line is well constructed, even if most of the lyrics are taken from the book of revelation. Graeme Swallow has done an excellent job with the composing, with each song sounding unique, while still sounding like they all belong together. THis album is best played right through in order to grasp the full story line. Graeme Swallow's guitar work is excellent, with good solos, and excellent riffs and acoustic passages. The bass and drums are solid, and handle the technicality of the songs easily. The vocals are good, but sound a bit flat in parts. The highlight of this CD is without doubt the keyboards. They are written by Swallow, who is actually a keyboardist as well as guitarist, and are played brilliantly on the disc by Chelsea Wagner. She also contributes backing vocals, which add to the overall sound. The keys help to create a symphonic sound, as well as being responsible for most of the melodies in the songs. The song 'Glory', on which the keys are actually played by Swallow live, is unbelievably fast and powerful, and literally takes your breath away to listen to. Stand out songs are: 'Glory', 'Children', 'Decay', 'Liars' and 'Judgement'. For fans of Shadow Gallery and Dream Theater.
