2 stars Like their previous album "Merlin-Bard Of The Unseen" this comes off as a musical for the ears, sort of a Prog opera I suppose. I must admit I haven't heard KAYAK's earlier works which i've seen described as Prog-pop, but this one and the previous one I mentioned are quite proggy.

This is a double album with 36 short tracks ! I can't bear to go song by song with this one. Like the previous album i'm having great difficulty appreciating the music. It's epic at times with choirs and it often has a classical flavour.There's narration and even folky passages, but this is all over the place to be honest. It's all about the concept and the lyrics though so if concept albums are your bag i'm sure you would rate this highly.There's even guests here to be the vocals of certain characters. Just not a fan of this style. I'm having difficulty listening to this for the third time.

For fans of KAYAK and concept album junkies.

Mellotron Storm | 2/5 |
