5 stars Very good stuff. CD1 is experimental, whereas CD2 is classic DT. CD1 : -'glass prison' is a blend of prog and thrash metal, close to Metallica. -'blind faith' is mainstream metal but it presents an interesting bridge -'misunderstood' is the most intriguing tune, beginning as a ballad and followed by a dark mood with Marilyn Manson influence and crimsonesque guitar work. -'the great debate' features excellent drumming and bass playing, and many rhythm changes in the bridge. -'disappear' is a melancholic ballad with pop accents la Radiohead. CD2 : concept-album -'Overture' is a pompous instrumental that presents all of the following themes. -'About to crash' is a magnificent prog tune. -'War inside my head' is a darker track. -'the test' has a faster pace and is more aggressive, with an amazing instrumental ending -'Goodnight kiss' is a sweet ballad -'Solitary shell' is a Yes-influenced tune, very light and ending with a superb instrumental part including a latine section. -'Reprise' is 'About to crash' with a faster pace and ends with a briliant keyboards' fireworks. -'Losing time' has a very sentimental atmosphere with grand vocals. Overall, these two CDs are as good as earlier DT CDs and I don't understand people who disapprove of them.
