3 stars This album is an excelent introduction for people who aren't familiar with the band.

Devil Doll are a band influenced by progressive rock, classical music and horror movies. You can clearly hear their influence in their work. It's not as dark or as heavy as people say it is except for the singer who has a very strange style of singing which makes Devil Doll what it is and very enjoyable. Devil Doll's sound is heavy prog with orchestrations being at times menacing and scary. They combine those two different styles flawlessly and that's one of the great things about their music. So at the end what you get is a very theatrical piece of work.

The album consists of two 20+ minute epics well sung and well crafted with varying themes and emotions. Mr. Doctor's voice is the main atraction in Devil Dolls music with his operatic approach to singing. His voice won't definetly appeal to everyone and he isn't the best singer out there either. There are some parts when the singing is unbearable, but luckily those parts are few and far between.

If you're looking for a good symphonic hard prog album, then give it a try. I'm sure that you'll find something of your interest.
