5 stars Fates Warning is an artful combination of simple melodies with complicated riffs. This album is full of beautiful and emotional melodies. In it you can hear sensational and powerful drumming. Ray Alder is one of the legendary voices of progressive metal and he always gives his best.

After nine years, Fates Warning still offers new and creative elements along with their peculiar style. Meanwhile, Jim Matheos has been working with Kevin Moore on "OSI" and in 2011, he released "Sympatheic Resonance" with other FW members except for Ray Alder (John Arch is on the vocals there!). So, without any doubt, you will witness influences from both projects on new Fates Warning.

I like Ray Alder's masterful vocal melodies, especially in "Falling", "O Chloroform" and "And Yet It Moves".

"And Yet It Moves" is the last and longest song on the album; a pure production of progressive metal. It begins with beautiful classical and baroque-like sequence which is another prove that Jim Matheos is full of feelings when it comes to playing and writing music.

This album is a masterpiece of progressive metal that offers feelings, beauty and simplicity hence giving it five stars.
