The rock opera is one of those types that appear once in a lifetime ... it's been 10 years since I started listening to it ... astonishing me still ... it takes me there ... to the place it precisely descripe .. to the streets! and it deeply explores the psychological side of the streets ... the streets that think, behave and act ... just another time before gulping down the buddies creeping over ... just one more tune before the curtain falls away ... until the last pick on the burning guitar strings ... I kept awake last night until late listning and discovering new things in the opera as if I heard it the first time in my life. at the begining I let it play while I was working on some report. and just before the first song was over I left what I was working in and got my entire senses occupied with that marvellous harmony between the very heavy sound of electric guitar ... the roaring bass ... and the warm piano hits throughout

The story features a fallen rock star called DT Jesus, who has hit hard times. He is a drug dealer as the story begins. DT Jesus is just another lowlife on the streets of New York City. Streets explains the story behind DT Jesus and his rise to fame again and his second fall.

for those who have love of music ... the music that does not classify in genres .. but only names itself music ... I advise you to listen to Streets: a rock opera by Savatage ... the greatest opera after Pink Floyd's The Wall.
