3 stars Actually it is 3.5 stars because It is a good album but a flawed one. The guitar playing in it it is marvellous, Lucassen is a master conducting this rock opera and the musicians in It they are top noctch. Have you listened the bass playing in "The Awareness" ? awesome!! The concept is cool, the story amusing and the songs keep you interested. But I found two irritating parts in It. One is the trumpet like keyboard they use when they say and his name is (was) Ayreon, sooo eighties, so Final Countdown, so cheap. And the other are the final vocalsisation on a closing song by some operatic star. What is that? ridiculous to sy the least; if you want to do it right please listen carefully to "A Gig in the Sky" for at least a hundred times and learn a little. So in the end a good album with a blemished face for me.
