5 stars This by far best album SX ever made is a very interesting one. I'm not sure if I can call this a concept album, it certainly sounds like one but I can not find any conformation of this. Doesn't really matter, main thing it's that it's fantastic and highly amusing. It's one of those (like f.i. More Grains or Alone by CLEPSYDRA, or Generation 13 by SAGA) you have to hear as a whole. It's like one complete story, the songs are seperated by interludes, very nicely done. This to me proves the brilliance of SX. it's a pity they didn't make more albums like this. This is by far their best effort, at least where the entire album is concerned. My favourite parts are:Egypt, A fool's paradise and Rediscovery but the rest is hardly any less.

So this will score 5 stars, a great example of a fantastic overall performance
