This is my second favorite album EVER! – only to Muse’s Absolution and they are only mili-points apart in my mind. The musicality and their ability to make nonsense somehow unequivocally logical is beyond me. Cedric’s vocals are beyond words. His skill and emotion is simply otherworldly. Miranda That Ghost Just Holy Anymore and Cassandra Gemini blew me away. I was literally knocked out of my seat. Listening to this album through Bose surround sound speakers is the epitome of euphoria! This is the album that progressive rockers, let alone artist as a whole, have dreamed of making. I feel honored to have purchased it. I should have paid far more something of this caliber. My only issue was that the epic fourteen minute title track opener wasn’t included because of the far too long – although, aptly appropriate – ambient noises. It would have been a perfect fit; thus making the album even better. ::laughs:: I added the track to the album myself on my music player, though.
