Fantasia is a conceptual piece of classically inspired symphonic rock and the story line is about a lonely man who attends a concert where his dreams and reality merge as he listens to the music of the Terra Hoxa Suite. The odd numbered tracks are the concerto while the even numbered tracks represent the manís dreams and experiences as he listens. The tracks all flow into the next so itís recommended to listen in one sitting. The bulk of the music is intrumental with the exception of the final track where there's some vocals.
I would recommend this to fanís of the more melodic progressive rock as well as those into the more classical based music.
