Consisting of essentially one seventy-seven minute mostly instrumental track the composition is made up of nine multi-part sections of varying lengths that once again tackles the subject of Good versus Evil. Over the course of this epic the listener is treated to virtually every Prog stylistic musical approach from Space-Rock to Jazz Fusion and everything in-between. The end result is a piece of music that weaves it’s way through one musical thought to another, ebbing and flowing, shifting and changing all to convey the conceptual ideas laid out by each sections musical title.
