5 stars Having just listened to this release for the third time in one day the only thing I can say is wow!! I have to admit, I was one who always placed Savatage in the same vein as Mettalica, Maiden etc. I read much about their evolution toward prog metal and thought yeah right. Now I have to eat my words. This recording has ripping guitars, sublime keyboards, and to my surprise tremendous vocal harmonies(especially The Hourglass). What really grabs you when listening is the story line. I feel like I'm watching some metal version of Gilligan's Island. I know that sound wierd but I mean it in a good way. The music paints a visual picture in your mind. This is very good prog-metal.
