5 stars Well, what can i say? It beats The Perfect Element, makes Second Life Syndrome look even worse than it is, and very easily rivals Metroplis pt.2. Yes, its that good. Its a masterpice, without question. I would say it is the best prog-metal album ever, honestly.

Interesting, origional and unique are words that come to mind when thinking about this album. Ok, some of it is reminisent of Yes, Kansas and others, but the tone here is incredible. Its exiting, and it varies a huge amount. From the short intro to the last high scream of Day Twenty this album is a magnificent prog journey. Folk, psychedelic, metal, rock are all combined here, it is truly a mesterful work. The emotion that this creates is superb. All the characters are emotions, and each singer does a fantastic job. I mean, Day Ten: Memories will actully bring up memories for you. Day Seven: Hope will fill you with hope and happiness. Day Three: Pain will make you feel the pain and the rage all spilled into that wonderfully heavy, bombastic Devin Townsend chorus. Thats what makes this album so different - it actully makes you feel yourself with its powerful, up-lifting fell throughout.

This is a must have prog metal, or just prog rock album. In my opinion, it should be in the top ten prog albums of all time, as it happens, prog archives rates it about 30 i think.

Get, and go on the most emotional, technically dazzaling, and quite frankly best musical journey of your life.
