5 stars Just recently got this happen and even though i've heard twice all the way through i gotta say that this is one of the finest albums i've heard out of 2005. I remember when i found a review for Room V by Shadow Gallery that stated this album one of the best of 05 along with Room V and the first thing that came into mind....Who the heck is Redemption? well that was just the beginning for me as i not only found out that Ray Adler was the lead singer of this band but the rhythm section of Prymary was in this band whom i've heard before because well Prymary's rhythm section is amazing. But i remember telling my friends about this and all they've said were good things and i trust their judgement so i had to get this piece of work especially after i heard Threads off of this website. And man it would be a long time till now FINALLY i have this album and MAN i'm so glad i do cause Redemption is an awesome metal band. no doubt about these five amazing musicians have been able to combine great elements of prog metal and some power metal together adding along the lines with some great melodic harmonies and some very beautiful symphony arrangements here and there. I mean there's no need for me to talk about the songs as all the songs are masterpieces i mean just take the melodic side of Fates Warning (Paralells/Inside Out era) add more crunch and heaviness from Prymary, cook up some power metal here and there and man you got some great music in 8 tracks (more like 5 since the last 4 do make up the 21 minute epic title track). But the band does an amazing job as first off Nick Van Dyk and Bernie Versailes really surprised me. These guys have a great guitar combo that reminds me so much of the amazing guitar combo from such greats like Iron Maiden for example. not to mention Nick really surprised me on keyboards as he just doesn't uses them for background but for soloing as well and man he's amazing. The Rhythm section well no need to discuss that since both Chris Quirante and James Sherwood are both amazing and very VERY tight but then again what can you expect coming from an amazing band like Prymary. And Ray Adler my gosh what hasn't been said about this guy he's sick and truely a legend for prog metal singers. To me one of his finest performances yet as you can really feel the emotion from this guy. So yea for fans of prog metal and basically people that wanna hear something new then ya gotta get this album cause it will blow your mind.
