5 stars In general it is a disc to which little it is possible to be attributed to him to have a deficient level, even covers with the expectation created by its predecessor V The New Mythology Suite (2000), disc that later it will review to give it of discharge, in general it is a disc of much interpretativa power and of very good sound clear this for which we pleased of the metal-prog. 1, Inferno, Is without a doubt already the classic rola of imposing sound very in the style of the band, which as in other discs it is placed in the beginning with aim to impress the listener, things that are not necessary for this formidable disc, the tremendous abilities are not made hope, the powerful voice of Allen indicates to us that we listened, the virtuosity of Romeo does not surround in a dilemma of ideas of the great purity, the rest of the opaque band not because they are great you interpret. 2, Wicked, without a doubt something that is invariable in all the development of the disc is the great coherence of the history based on the book of already the famous Homero, is without you doubt a product worked very well by the members of the band, in each sound and in each note this is very well-known. 3, Incantations Of The Apprentice, This part is like a small introduction already to the Úpico world of history with a symphonic beginning and continuing with a progression of sounds that are united little by little until it obtains his assignment. 4, Accolade II, the second part of Accolade that comes from the fantastic disc and most progressive of all The Divine Wings of Tragedy, without a doubt I will have here to make reference that the first version I like more than this, but not this nothing dissapointing. 5, King Of Terrors, This rola is of which but I make an impression since its sound really I cause in a terror, good in my at least obtained to its assignment very a well obtained rola. 6, The Turning, the function of this rola is to cause an aggressiveness sense to be able to enjoy plus the Odyssey, it is without you doubt a very good vocal interpretation and for anything outside place. 7, Awakenings, This rola is something that there is to be thankful being the perfect introduction with a sound of the low one which in case it only sounds or Úpico, to follow with an excellent piano, really something that or brings symphonic dyes. 8, The Odyssey, This in fact is very difficult to comment because before the greatness the words leave exceeding, will try to be more concise, the beginning without you doubt is almost of film, continued of the fine adjustment of the instruments gives the band, with impressive passages and a worthy interpretation of praises, continues its furtive step therefore the amazing most habitual cadences but that without losing the beauty, I have by necessity that to make a comparison that that to many it sounded a little to them imprudent or unreal, but the sound I am touched so much as when the Atom Hearth Mother de Pink Floyd listens for the first time, good I hope is not too much comparison or little according to wants it to see, but in aim it is a rola that without a doubt has left its own sign already and influences. 9, Bonustrack: Masquerade, the truth when I began to listen to this rola, is not being compulsive of the comparisons that without you doubt bother to me but I thought that I was to cover of Yngwie Malmsteen, but is not thus if not an excellent rola that finishes this fantastic CD, that lamentably only I include myself in the special edition.
