5 stars AMAZING! AMAZING! AMAZING!!! I can't express how great, brilliant, breath-taking and just moving this album is. I consider this the best Savatage album, and with Sieges Even - A sense of change among the best of the early '90. This is real a rock opera not just a simple album, they have complex pieces, warm ballads, everything that needs to be a good album, and in the end a masterpiece of prog. I'm a big Savatage fan since 1993, when they relesed Edge of thorns, and i was blown away by how strong composition are, how complex but not to complex to get bored, but in the same time very melodic and catchy. The warm voice of Jon Oliva give to the album a new dimension, thats why he is considered one of the most prolific and inteligent musician in the last 20 years. The years go by i add to my colection the whole albums, i listened and i get to conclusion that Streets is the best Savatage album, in fact the whole albums are above the albums from that period. They went shoulder to shoulder with Queensryche in the '80, but in the end they won in the '90, Queensryche became more and more comercial. So i rate this album 5 stars and without doubt one of the best in prog. I can't choose a track because the whole concept is brilliant, all are super, well played and above all not boring like other stuff from the early '90. Get it now Savatage at the highest level.
