4.0 out of 5 stars No "Silence" Here.... January 11, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I find it interesting that on this album and the one that follows (Seraphic Clockwork), that there are three different songs with a form of the word "silent" in the title. This may be the definition of "irony". There is very little approaching "silence" on this album. All the better!!!

This is the second Vanden Plas album I own. After being fully blown away by Seraphic Clockwork, I had high expectations for Chirst 0. While I will contend this album is not quite on the same level, this is still exceptional.

Both albums are concept albums. Christ 0 is loosely based on the storyline from the Count of Monte Cristo. In an approach that Vanden Plas also uses on SC, rather than dumbing down the concept to make it fit into the CD format, they elect to provide a story description in the album liners. The concept here is reasonably straight forward - wrongly accused of murder, "Christ 0" gives into hate and becomes solely focussed on revenge, while "Inspector X", while pursuing Christ 0, is faced with those parts of him that are too close to being like Christ 0.

This is where the two albums differ: where this concept is straight forward, the lyrics seem much more difficult to connect one to the other. For SG, the concept is very complex. Yet, when you understand it, the lyrics connect very well. For this reason, I have struggled, at least initially, coming to grips with the lyrics on this one.

Musically, this band is simply amazing. Typically, the standard barer for "prog-metal" is Dream Theater and rightly so. That being said, this album combined with SG could easly be put up with the best anyone, including DT, has to offer. The riffs are strong and immediate. All the voices, both human and instrument, are generally well balanced and play off each other very well.

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME VANDEN PLAS CD July 17, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I WILL SAY THAT I REALLY ENJOY THIS CD AS THIS IS MY FAVORITE VANDEN PLAS CD. IT SOUNDS VERY EPIC AT TIMES, YET THE SOUND IS SO POLISHED SOUNDING. THIS BAND IS REALLY PEAKING AND MAY BE GERMANY'S FINEST PROGRESSIVE METAL BAND I BELIEVE! AS A PERSON WHO ATTENDS THE PROGPOWER FESTIVAL IN USA IN ATLANTA GEORGIA, 2011 WILL BRING THE BAND TO THIS SPECIAL EVENT. WITH THESE GUYS PLAYING WITH EVERGREY ON THE KICK-OFF SHOW ON THURSDAY, I CAN'T WAIT FOR TWO OF MY ALL TIME FAVORITE PROGRESSIVE METAL BANDS, PLAYING BACK TO BACK! SO IF YOU LIVE CLOSE, OR IF YOU DON'T, YOU CAN ALWAYS FLY TO ATLANTA TO SEE BOTH OF THESE KILLER BANDS. ME PERSONALLY, I LOVE BOTH OF THESE NEW CD'S THAT VANDEN PLAS AND EVERGREY PUT OUT THIS YEAR, BUT I'M HOPING VANDEN PLAS PLAYS QUITE A FEW SONGS FROM CHRIST-O, CAUSE THIS CD IS A VERY STRONG MELODIC, PROGRESSIVE METAL ALBUMS I WILL ENJOY FOR A LONG TIME. I HOPE TO SEE YOU AT PROG-POWER TO SEE TO GIANTS OF PROG POWER MUSIC AND I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING THE NEW EVERGREY LINE-UP AS WELL. GREAT CD, YOU SHOULD BUY THIS!
