1 stars I just don't understand all the hype for this record. For me, it's just a crappier version of Genesis but with a medieval vibe. The only song that's worth talking about is Song Of Scheherazade, and just because of the mess it is. It isn't a twenty four minute song, it's a collection of short tracks that have absolutely nothing to do with each other, and there is absolutely nothing memorable about them. It just doesn't work. The other tracks are more of the same, if not a little worse.

If you're wondering what this album sounds like: Dark Ages Genesis. One Star.
