4 stars Want to hear some REAL prog metal? Get this album by Planet X. Most other bands in this genre are just metal bands trying to sound progressive, but never quite breaking out of the metal mold, including the 'sacred cow' of prog metal, Dream Theatre. I don't see what the hype is all about, they just sound like 80's metal band with very good chops - totally predictable. Prog music is not about lengthy songs and soloing at break-neck speed. It's more about structure, complex meters, sensitive and imaginative compositions, eclecticism. Planet X seem to have hit on the right mix of metal mayhem and progressive sophistication, and you'll never get bored listening to their music, because you just don't know what comes next. One reviewer wrote, "if you can tell the album's style in the first few minutes of listening, it is not prog". I agree. Planet X define progressive metal.
