5 stars I don't think that this is an unbiased review of this album as much as any DT album. Through the years ( 80's - 90's - 00's) I enjoyed all kinds of metal (classic, heavy, thrash, funk(!), industrial, gothic, neo) to end up with progressive. Simply, it sums up all the above in a way that fits to my ears. So for the last couple years I 've been a great fan of DT as they are for many people the best and the most influential prog metal band around.

I got this album from the first day and although I didn't understand in the beginning, this is their finest. The virtuosity of this band is the strong part. They can play virtually anything but they usually stick to metal, so I believe that this album fits mainly to the metal crowd. The complexity can be found in all their albums but it's the concept-opera feeling that it's so strong here. They can make you bang your head as easy as they can melt your soul in the slow melodic parts. The compositions are strong throughout the album and there are peaks for all five musicians. From the thunderous solos to the colossal drums of the finale the music blows you away. The lyrics have a meaning that gets through easily. And LaBrie's voice fits perfectly to the concept.

I think that this band you can either love it or hate it. For their music the least you can do is respect it. And this album truly proves their talent. Surely a MASTERPIECE. Consider yourself lucky if you can see them live, especially performing this album. I did.

Sophocles | 5/5 |
