5 stars On the surface, this album is a collection of songs based on ghost stories and tales of the supernatural, but beneath that really these are stories about humanity, with a depth of emotion not found on many new prog albums these days. I've been getting very emotional listening to this album - especially the title track, when complemented by the video that is available on the web. The musical performances are amazing, complementing the stories/lyrics perfectly, without veering off into excessive prog rock "noodling". While I loved "Grace For Drowning", I think this album even tops that one. If you can, get the Blu-Ray version to hear this in 5.1 surround, to fully experience the amazing production quality of this album from Mr. Wilson and Alan Parsons. Highly recommended!
