I have no idea why this group/album is so dissapointingly underated. This is some of the best Progressive Power metal I have ever heard. All the musicians are extremely talented, making technical skill a highlight. Also Ian Parry's vocals are very good and his compositions (He writes most of the music and lyrics) are Highly complex. The lyrical concept is an ongoing one continued from the previous two albums.

No matter if the song is more progressive or more toward regular power metal, it is beautiful. This album has masterpieces in both realms. "Reductio Ad Absurdum" for example, is a fast paced power metal song. The ending of this one has awesome guitar solos switching back and forth from a minor backing riff to a major one. The effect sends chills down my spine. On the more progressive end, "Across the Seven Seas" is one with lots of piano and slower melodies. It is one of the more beautiful moments. Also "Beyond the Gateway of Legends" a lot of times sounds more like prog rock than metal.

All in all, this album rules. It has an atmosphere that not many other albums have and has no low points. Listen and revel in it's splendor.
