I think DT really scored a high this album in regards with them not holding back the epicness, the grandeur and the theatrics. Lord Nafaryus, Three Days and The Walking Shadow are three of my favorites because such elements are so present and in your face all the time.
Also, the ballads are incredible. The acoustic piano sounds absolutely amazing, and it made me recall that one of the things that people wanted the most about Rudess was more piano. Well, we now have an album in which the piano is the main instrument throughout. Amazing stuff.
