This is a rock opera concept album. They use electric and acoustic guitars, violins, keyboards, and other classical instruments. Most of the songs are rock versions of Beethoven's work, or variations of them. All in all the music is well played, and recorded good. The actors voices are well sung with emotion. The story of this album is that Beethoven is feeling it is his time to pass on, right after he has completed his 10th Symphony. At that time the Devil comes and tells Beethoven he is to spend death in Hell for eternity, but he can change that if he gives all of his music to the Devil. Beethoven is then guided throughout his life, by Fate, to change whatever he wants so that he will not be damned to hell, and not have to give over his music. He sees both good and bad times, and how that has made him who he is. He sees that he should change nothing, because he would never have had the inspiration to create such great music. This is the message that throughout our lives, we are made of both the bad and the good, and that we would never be who we are now, unless we had the bad. It is up to us to choose if we will use the bad as an inspiration to bring joy and wondrous creations as Beethoven chose to do. At the end Beethoven and his Fate play a trick on the Devil, and he is able to pass on to bliss. The story is a fun one, and sends a positive message. Guitar work isn't too technical, but its interesting to hear Beethoven in rock. If your a fan of progressive rock, concept albums, or Beethoven, I would suggest you check this out, I'm sure you'd enjoy it. 4 stars.
