"The Infinite Wonders Of Creation" is the 3rd and last part in Rhapsody guitarist Luca Turilli?s trilogy that started with "King Of The Nordic Twilight" and was followed by "Prophet Of The Last Eclipse". This time around,Luca has not based this on a fantasy theme, only about mother nature. Like on the two previous albums,Luca has Olaf Hayer on vocals, Sascha Paeth on bass and Robert Hunecke-Rizzo on drums,as guest vocalist you will find Bridget Fogle that has a beautiful voice and gives this album more variation and she delivers some great melodies. I have to say that he has come up with a big sounding symphonic opera with powerful orchestral arrangements mixed with powermetal and lovely melodies. Luca has managed to create a wonderful keyboard and string sound to the album with pompous choirs in a few places.
Sometimes this reminds very much of Nightwish but then on the other hand, there are lots of influences from Rhapsody as well. The only downpoint on this album is that many of the songs soundalike but some of them sounds so huge and powerful that you can?t do anything but enjoy it all. I would like to point out a couple of tracks that are highlights on this album and those are "Altitudes", "The Miracle Of Life" and "Mystic And Divine" that shines out more than the rest.

No,i?m disappointed over this album. I really liked his previous effort "Prophets...." but this is more opera-like and in some moments just too much Opera. A few good tunes though but not enough to save the whole album.
