3 stars A real mixed bag of an album and one that ultimately disappoints. It has all the right elements for a classic album, strong concept (even if it borrows a little too much from "The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway"), some good melodies and musical sequies and lyrics that balance progressing the story and working as stand alone songs pretty well.

Having thought about it long and hard 2 things let this record down.

1) - the programmed drums are a bit too obviously a druim machine and sound mechanical rather than natural

2) - the vocals. The singer is sadly a disaster at times and shouts and screeches too much at the detrement of the music.

An album to take out once a year to listen too. Not essential but wothwhile dipping into (if you can tolerate the drums and vocals that is)
