3 stars Exceptional. Forget the whole concept thing, it's not important. What is important is the incredible musicality. Various snipets of prog masterpieces are reborn, especially the keyboard mastery of Keith Emerson and Rick Wakeman. You will find quotes from both musicians throughout this keyboard dominated recording.

A fourth star would be appropriate had another vocalist been used. Brad Marler is at times annoying, at others, downright horrible. The timbre of his voice is good, however, his striving to be emotive wreaks havoc on an awesome instrumental display.

Arjen Lucassen guests on guitar and offsets the barrage of keyboards. There is enough musical talent to give one reason to forgive the lousy vocals.

Dan Bobrowski | 3/5 |
