Review by b_olariu
4 stars Final part of the trilogy issued at Frontiers records in 2007 like the other parts named The final surprise was indeed a pleasent surprise for me, because is from all 3 the best album. The sound, musicianship, the vocal arrangements are better then on previus works, and here everything is sounds like e true band not a project of Liverani. The main man behind the band - Liverani took his ideas to a new level and the music and the instrumental passages are brilliant this time. Some very inventiv guitar parts, realy impressive like on Let Me Live, No More Chances, Alive and Safe or Jump Off This Train makes Liverani one of the best in this genre. The drume is again top notch, much better then on previous part, more confident in his posibilities and much more up tempo with nice breaks and strong beats. The guest musicians, the vocalist did a good job again, but this time they realy sound like a tight unit here, storytellers moments on each piece shows that this is realy a rock opera. I will give 4 stars this time, maybe the best from all 3, at least for me. Similar with Avantasia, Ayreon.
