4 stars One of the overlooked albus of Savatage, but for sure deserve attention. The last one with Zak Stevens on vocals. Again a splendid album, with a concept that pleases every prog metal fan.This is good, semi-prog power metal. Yet this does not sound like power metal at all, they kept the sound and manner of composing like on Edge of thorns or Handfull of rain, but in my opinion less convincing then on previous albums, but still great. Better then predecessor Dead winter dead with more prog elements and symphonis arrangements, on the The Wake of Magellan" music is more epic and less dramatic, agreed with the history of the album. All the tracks are amzing specialy the first 3 and the last 3, the middle section is good but not really awesome. So all in all a great album by a legendary band. Still very strong, 4 stars recommended for prog metal fans.
