Often when a someone does a solo project, you wonder why they bothered because all they've done is churn out some carbon copy that their band could've easily done, no new ground covered. Well, I have to say I think Timo's been held back a little in Strato (no tragedy that he's left or been kicked out??)since he wrote everything on this album and all the songs are great-not one mediocre tune in the bunch. What makes this so much better is he wisely decided to forgo the familiar power metal genre, which I'm not so crazy about outside of Strato anyway, and make a more straightforward (but not run-of-the-mill) metal album. So what you get here is a killer melodic metal album with a who's who of metal musicians playing backup and none of the aspects that can make some power metal a little repetitive. I was awfully disappointed when I heard a couple of months ago that Timo was no longer in Strato, but now I can see why! I can barely wait until next month when his new album comes out. Actual rating: 4 1/2 stars.

Being a huge fan of Stratovarius I though that this album will be pretty disapointing,I thought it will be very stratovarius,but no! it is just amazing,Kotipelto work is great,music and lyrics are great,with an Egyptian style is a beautiful work.
Songs like "choosen by re" and "travel through time" with that beautiful intro are powerfull.
"beauty has come" is a beautiful balad that blows you away,especially in mi case.
"book of the dead" has a very powerful intro.
"The movement of the Nile" is a beautifull song,a journey.
Kotipelto's powerfull,beautiful and some times sensual voice makes this album a masterpiece.
buy it!enjoy it!

Timo put a great one together here! I am impressed with the quality of his song writing skills. His singing is excellent, the music is phenominal, and his choice of Michael Romeo was brilliant! This album is not as symphony-based as Stratovarius, but has more balls and chunk. Romeo plays on 5 of the tunes, which happen to be the best songs on the album. The other guitarists are good, but they don't hit you like Romeo. All said, every song is excellent and I highly recommend this to anyone who is a fan of Symphony X, Stratovarius, or both. 10 stars!!!
P.S. - Michael Romeo kicks major butt!

Do you like Stratovarius? If you do, but haven't heard about Timo Kotipelto's side project, you're missing out on a monster of a group. Principally, the lineup of the band is as follows: guitarist Mike Romeo (Symphony X), one of my favorite power/prog metal guitarists ever, bassist Jari Kanulainen (Stratovarius), another big influence on me as a bassist, keyboardist Janne Warman (Children Of Bodom/Warmen), perhaps the greatest keyboardist in headbanging history, drummer Mirka Rantanen (Tunnelvision), who has some monster blast beats, and of course, Timo Kotipelto (Stratovarius) on vocals. Overall, the album is better than any Stratovarius album (but not by a whole lot.) It features an overall better lineup, and a somewhat more progressive sound.

And now of course, the highlights of the album: opener "Intro/Travel Through Time" is pure speed metal pandemonium with a keyboard solo to be reckoned with. "Beginning" is the best song on the album, with a middle tempo and one of the greatest intro solos ever to be heard. And "Chosen by Re" is an epic, 7 and a half minutes, not as long as most epic songs, but still a masterpiece nonetheless. The whole album is awesome and great for Strato-fans.
