Description/Reviews
While the album definitely falls within the realm of progressive rock, it is also quite cinematic or even theatrical at times.  Much of it is led more by keys and an eclectic array of instruments than by guitar, and portions of the album are dominated more by atmosphere and texture than guitar licks and straightforward melodies.  With the multiple singers and also with the various stories that are being told (more on that later), the album can come across as a spiritual rock opera with some world music elements, only far more delicate and subtle than that term suggests.
