Sophocles
5 stars Threshold always knew how to mix melody with metal in a technical prog way. They are masters of this. And they are back for more.

First songs provide a simpler form and still with heavy, maybe heavier than before riffs. The brush strokes of growling vocals is an interesting addition. In track 3 things get more complex. An impressive song with great guitar and keys performance. From then on you can sit back and enjoy the whole thing. Magnificent work. Sometimes more mellow, sometimes more heavy. Always something "more" to get from this.

Pilot in the sky of dreams is their symphonic moment. This is where this record touches perfection. And stays there 'till the end.

I think that they did some small steps further from their previous albums. You can sense that in some cases their sound is somehow modernized without the loss of identity. With a clean production they get a bit more noisy and electro but they don't mess around much.

Don't get it wrong, this is a pure Threshold album. If you haven't heard of them -a bit difficult for a prog metal fan- this is a perfect place to start with. All their good elements are here, a state of the art. Prolific, sumptuous and substantial. Deservedly 5 stars...

Sophocles | 5/5 |
