    Great review! Thanks
    I have this on my want list. Will hopefully buy it soon.

    I would like to know what Dr. Scott had before doing the video.

    This is Ben's best yet. I don't really do symphonic (apart from the originators of the style) but Ben Craven is the exception. This album has a big and, at times, bombastic sound but Ben carries it off perfectly.

    Wow, listened to this last night, and have to agree it’s quite a ride. Sort of like if Danny Elfman and David Gilmour collaborated with…some very good vocalist. But there are so many nods to other Prog bands, like ELP and Genesis, without sacrificing originality. A lot of fun. I’ll most likely order the CD from the Band Wagon USA.

    I ordered it myself from Band Wagon just yesterday. I head heard it once on progstreaming but didn't revisit. Because of the OP's thoughts, I took more listens and it inspired me to buy.
