A bit on the slow side, this is a continuous song broken up into 12 parts. There are a few standout parts. It is worthwhile to own, as it can be attained cheaply on eBay.

this CD is horrible. donīt buy it because its not metal by any means, and it has nothing to do with the better fates warning albums

This album is of the best I 've heard the last five years.I am terribly sorry about the comments I have read on this site about it.Fates Warning are professional music players and Matheos a great composer.Before buying it,I suggest you listen to it from a friend.I know it is difficult for common people to understand this kind of music.

The last good album from FW. After this the downfall have begun. Like DREAM THEATER after their second and QUEENSRYCHE after "Promised Land" these great bands decided to go into a new "modern" direction. For me itīs just crappppp!

pretty good release by FATES WARNING back in 97 ,in their own style with clear and polished sound,not so heavy and in the slower side !as always the musicianship is excellent and you can find some great moments!recommended for FATES WARNING fans

A concept album with all those prog ingredients needed to catch the lovers of the genre,i guess...for me was not completely my cup of tea but the band itself is a reference and obviously a must for persons in the line of Queensryche,Dream Theater and so on...tracks 3,5,6,7,11 & 12 are in my book .70/100
