Pretty solid album.
He did a good job of 'reprising' old songs. Although... is that just a way to say.... i ran out of ideas on this story so i'll just redo the good old songs in a new way...... Yes i understand its a saga but when you take all the 'reprise' away whats left is pretty thin.....after 3 dynamic shifts over the previous albums, the addition of the orchestra was probably the best thing on the album.
The biggest impact this album made on me was to go back to the previous acts and re-enjoy them. This new albums just feels like a had to be done filler album.
