3 stars A rapid glance to the lineup and you have in front of you the best of Dutch Progressive Metal, starting from Arjen Lucassen.

Well this is mainly a Ian Parry's project initially intended for a single album that later had three follow-ups, becoming the longest sci-fi inspired concept that I currently know. The fifth album of the Project is announced for this summer.

Lovers of progressive metal may consider this a masterpiece as good progressive metal is exactly what you'll find inside. What can be of interest for all the others is the skillful musicianship, the good songwriting and the concept behind. The album's alternative title is "Criminals and Kings".

Highlights are "Banquet Of Thieves", "Garden Of Eden", "Pandora's Box" and "Chain Of Fears".

A particular mention is deserved by "The Entity" that's a very atmospheric short instrumental. or the slow "A Miracle Is All We Need" with it's romantic piano intro.

There are some moments that remind to the 80s "hairy metal bands" but luckily not so poor as these. To me, this is a good album, but is a step beyond masterpieces like Ayreon's The Human Equation, but also to the Vengeance material, to mention another band which featured Ian. If we consider the whole 4 (now 5) albums it's an impressive work but taken alone it's just good.

4 stars I actually had no idea who Ian Parry was when I first bought this album. I saw it on Ebay very cheap and thought I'd check it out as I'd heard of the Consortium Project before. It wasn't until I looked in the booklet that I actually felt any true excitement about what I had in my hands. Thomas Young ... (read more)
