'The Wake of Magellan' is perhaps one of the more underrated of melodic metal albums of it's time. Savatage made a reputation for grand and epic tale's through the years, caped of by this excellent album. I won't say it is faultless, nor am I going to say it is their best work; however, it is in its own right an outstanding album with glorious and epic introductions, beautiful lyrics, catchy songs with a good voice and one of the industries great songwriters Jon Oliver. Savatage were in the 1980's one of metals innovators, and now they have become one of the corner stones of metal everywhere.

Pretty tedious stuff with the exception of the title track, which is great n epic song with an amazing 2nd half.
