Transitus the latest record by the Dutch prog mastermind with way too many phone numbers in his mobile phone… Arjen Anthony Lucassen. Who did he call this time to perform on his latest record?

At best deranged
I like the narrator (very engaging voice) a lot if I'm honest and the concept story is solid.

However, I feel like half of the narration is unnecessary and could have been (or in some cases already is) worked into the music. So yeah either it's repeating certain story elements or it's adding story which could have been told in actual songs.

As a result this album suffers heavily from a lack of flow. And on top of that it took this record until track 8 to give me a song that felt sort of memorable. That's also partially due to the fact that this feels like an audiobook half of the time...

Overall I'm disappointed. I'm glad I gave it a listen though. The story itself is enjoyable and interesting enough. But repeated listens? I don't think this album will get a lot from me.

Damn this is a dissapointment. You cannot deliver such a bad album with that lineup of singers. It seems like all the wrong decisions there were to take, were taken. The narrator every 2 minutes, the songs does not deliver any emtions, the singers dont shine.
Damn I was not expecting something original, but at least a lil more. If it was not for the singers, it would get such a lower rating.
This album takes away my 2020 hopes
