4 stars The second part of his ambitious concept and the first one with a proper band proved to be quite a beast. Dominici came back to music business with a silent whisper with his self-produced acoustic solo debut. And then two years later in 2007 he continued with a roar.

Backed by the Italian band Solid Vision (minus their singer of course), the second part of the trilogy is a feast for prog metalheads. The sound is very reminiscinent of Dream Theater during SFAM era, but that's only the surface. Delving deeper, I cannot help but think that the album sounds very European (which is quite logical considering that most of the band are from Italy). This must be prog metal at its very best without trying to be artistic. They even have the obligatory power ballads (Captured and The Real Life) which have great melodies and work very well without being clichéd. They also bring the much needed space to breath between the heavy and complex songs.

Dominici is in great shape here and sounds better than ever. He can really belt it out. His lyrics are good and the concept is brilliant in its bizarre overblown madness. In print, it really sounds cheesy, but somehow it works very well with the music. One really big plus point comes from the clarity of the lyrics, you can really follow the story even without having the lyric sheets in front of you.

Solid work from all of the band and truly an excellent addition to any music collection. 4 stars.
