4 stars Like the reviews before mine have suggested, you can pretty much cut this into two pieces. The title track and the covers.

The title track: To say the least, this is a piece of magic. All seven sections are fantastic in nearly every way. It's a thing of beauty. At a time of 23:06, it finds itself in some pretty elite company, such as tracks like CTTE, KE9 and SOYCD.

The covers: I wish they would've chosen better Floyd, Genesis and Deep Purple songs, as well as included the nice Yes medley with Steve Howe and maybe skipped Journey... but I can't complain. These are some nice covers and overall, they sound pretty cohesive. Nothing to write home about, though. Better covers can be found on some of their rare stuff (such as the medley on Precious Things and the Number of the Beast cover).

While the weight of the title track alone nearly carries it to a perfect rating, I can't quite go that high for this release. This is a must for prog metal fans, though.
