From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

5 stars This album gets 5 stars without a doubt, because it is a masterpiece of the progressive rock genre, and would be welcome in almost anyone's collection if they like progressive rock. The album has everything progressive rock has to offer, lengthy spacey instrumental passages, surreal artwork, a captivating story told across the album, and more.

From start to finish, the album takes you through the legend of Atlantis, and its creation, all the way to it's destruction on June 5th - 8498. It contains wonderful keyboards that take you to different places and dimensions of unreal worlds. A perfect combination of science fiction and mythology, the lyrics are written in an almost biblical style. All the songs are great, and the concept is as important as the music, with a long monologue of a storyteller informing the listener of the fate of atlantis in the beginning of the last track.

Believe me when I say that it is a perfect progressive rock album, mixing rock and roll with surreal stories and sounds of an almost classical sense.

Highly recommended for any progressive rock fan. For those ordinary rock fans who have some progressive because it's good, but they're not TRUE fans (example, people who like Pink Floyd's the Wall and Dark Side of the Moon, but not much else), this album may be far too out there. Far too departed from the ordinary rock and roll style, but really if you like progressive rock, this is an album of perfection. Get it.
