4 stars I love this album...and I love the fact it's the only album the band ever did...that always gives them a certain mystery, you know? From the reviews in PA I thought it was going to be good...but I was surprised!!! This music is just what I needed: SYMPHONIC THRUE AND THRUE!!!

It's really a shame when people talk about Neuschwanstein as another Genesis-clone-band... they are not! The fact is that the singer sounds so much like Gabriel that people puts them in that box immediately. What a pity, cause the music (although naturally influenced) does not sound like Genesis. The keys are more bombastic, the instrumental sections are more powerful and lyrics are not in the Gabriel fashion at all. All songs are great, and the bonus track, an instrumental, is also very good.

The stand outs in this album are Loafer Jack for its acoustic beauty and great flutes, Intruders and the punishment for its power, keys and execution, Beyond the bungle, Battlement and Midsummer day... hehehe I just named 5songs out of 6 (7 if you consider the bonus track part of the album)...

Extremely recommended to any symphonic fan!!! You can't miss this one!!!
