4 stars i cannot believe this album took only the usual 2 years for Symphony X! it has everything that a true progressive metal classic should have:

- 60+ minutes playing time - multiple "epic" songs - Communion and the Oracle, Egypt, Rediscovery... - segues, intros, instrumental interludes et al - a concept (being mythology makes it even more special) - superb instrumentalists strutting their best stuff - intriguing cover art

... ...

the return of Jason Rullo is quite telling in the rhythm section.

the band is so much more mature in this one, the difference is revealing if you listed to V after, for example, The Damnation Game not even considering the self-titled debut.
