Progressive Metal

5 stars 3 years after the concept "A pleasant shade of gray" and after the live album " Still live" the Fates Warning create what can be considered the most mature and complete work, hard to do after a work of undeniable splendor such as the suite of '97 .

The persuasive and refined melodies of "Inside out" and the charming simplicity of " Pleasant shade" follows a suggestive work, apparently more affordable.

Matheos is guitarist and author intelligent and measured, the rhythm section of the master Mark Zonder, and the ex-Armored Saint Joey Vera is practically perfect, a rhythmic engine precise and imaginative!!! Kevin Moore with keyboards and hypnotic electronic loops, Ray Alder as usual expressive interpreter and crystalline voice like few .

7 tracks of prog metal is not self-indulgent, or circus ( as you listen for a while ' time even from the most renowned bands ... ), a strong presence of inserts and electronic trance, the usual attention to melodic class, living with daring and tortuous rhythmic, a general atmosphere post-apocalyptic and melancholy. Finally a wealth of experience and a technical executive placed at the service of very specific ideas, not virtuosity for its own sake, not the attitude of a rockstar fat and satisfied unable to renew.

The production of the legendary Terry Brown gives extra charm to a job really catchy one of the best prog metal album of all time.

five stars!!!
