I found about Savatage through Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and thought I'd check them out because I thought they would sound like TSO. Well, I was wrong, they sound way better.Not to say that TSO is bad, it's just with TSO I really only loved the instrumentals, but when I heard Jon Olivia's vocals the first time I knew he was a great singer.So I started digging deeper and fell in love with most of their albums (even Zachary's records).This album, while not their best in my opinion, is so incredibly awesome, with a good fantasy-story like vibe to it.Standouts include the breathtaking title-track, the killer opener "24 Hours Ago", and personnel favorite, the sometime overlooked "Strange Wings".A true progressive metal masterpiece.
