4 stars THRESHOLD's debut album's main theme is about the enviroment as the title of the record suggests. Damian Wilson does a great job on vocals as usual.

"Consume To Live" opens with crunchy riffs as synths join the melody briefly. Drums pound away as vocals come in.The song gets better as it plays out as we are treated to some spirited guitar solos. "Days Of Dearth" opens with slowly pounding drums as a mournful guitar melody comes in then vocals with riffs in tow. Some good contrasts throughout. Good song with synths to close it out. "Sanity's End" is dominated with synths, drums, and vocals. There is a nice pastoral section after 2 minutes. Damian's vocals are excellent ! Some good soaring guitar followed by a keyboard solo.

"Paradox" is an ok song but doesn't do a lot for me because of all the synths. "Surface To Air" is ballad-like for 90 seconds with piano and vocals leading the way. Drums and guitar come in, and more great vocals. "Mother Earth" is an incredible song. I really enjoy the guitars in this one, from the riffs to the scorching solos. "Siege In Baghdad" opens with slowly pounding drums along with a guitar melody. It gets heavy as vocals come in. Some more great guitar to follow. "Keep It With Mine" is a beautiful, hopeful song with acoustic guitar and reserved vocals.

Favourite songs are "Sanity's End", "Mother Earth" and "Siege Of Baghdad".This isn't as good as "Clone" in my opinion but it's well worth checking out.This is where it all started.
