5 stars To be honest, since the eponymous debut in 2007 we all knew this band had the potential for greatness, but as the years drew on that premise appeared less and less attainable. I'm happy to say that the wait was worth it, as cliche as that sounds, because not only has the follow-up eclipsed the excellent debut in every category, it's progressed to a new level entirely.

"In Extremis" is easily one of the most impressive progressive rock releases of 2013 because of the fluid and varied arrangements and strong musical vision. Many reviewers have gone through a track-by-track review so I will abstain from that, but I will say that there is no filler on this album.

Highlights: Eggshell Man and the ambitious title track. The Man Who Died Two Times should be a tune that everybody should hear because it has all the ingredients to be very popular. I don't want to jinx it, but that tune should get a lot more attention from the mainstream than it has! I could easily see this used in a movie. Heck, why not just make a movie to feature the song?

Final thoughts: must have album, fine artwork, plenty of things to keep prog fans VERY happy. I'm hoping that the follow-up won't keep us in suspense for another 6 years! Also, hard as it may due to the nature of the band, I'd LOVE to see this performed live - it's a bucket-list worthy pursuit.

5 stars - essential
