YMMV: Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes from a Memory
  • Awesome Music: The whole album qualifies, but particular mentions would go to "Overture 1928","Beyond This Life", "Home", and "Finally Free."
  • Fridge Horror: It's implied that Victoria's communications with Nicholas are to warn him that the Hypnotherapist is going to kill him, because he is Edward reincarnated. If this is the case, then it's entirely possible that The Miracle will continue to murder further reincarnations for the rest of eternity. As if being killed once wasn't bad enough.
    • It gest worse. The cycle completely ignores the relationships of those involved within, and doesn't dive into the repercussions of what it causes on both sides of the story: It's said in "Through Her Eyes" that Nicholas had a wife and a son, both now bereaved because of that stupid cycle of life, death and revival. Likewise, because it ends before the crime, no mention is made of whether or not the Hypnotherapist was arrested later on (considering the investigation methods have changed quite a lot since Edward's murder), which sparks a tiny bit of light in this otherwise grim story.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: The TV news Nicholas hears near the end of "Finally Free". It speaks of a horrible tragedy, horrible enough to be reported all around the world. The size of the tragedy brings to mind September 11th, 2001.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Many Spoken Word parts may some across as this. There is the sexual grunting that can be heard at the start of the instrumental portion of "Home", the killing scene in "Finally Free", and don't even get us started on the Last Note Nightmare at the end of the album.
  • Tear Jerker: There are several very powerful ones in this album including "Through Her Eyes", "The Spirit Carries On" (which doubles as a Heartwarming Moment), and "Finally Free" (especially the part before Nicholas' last lines)
