4 stars I've heard of Threshold back in the '95 when Psychedelicetessen was released. The progressive metal world was full of mouth of them. Well, i didn't believe them, so i skipped them in my progressive collection. But i was wrong. I see it now because after 5 or 6 years later they are hot gossip again. The proof is the album Hypothetical which is the best blend between heavy/power and progressive metal. Karl Groom's guitar is at the moment heavy, almost thrashy and on the other hand it's gentle and melodic. The same with McDermott's vocal. Lyrics are intelligent. The songs on the album are very tight and if as there are 2,3 or even 4 themes in them, but Threshold does this complexity very listenable and linear so it's not to tough to listen to it! That's why i like it so much. I won't go in too deep in explaining the songs, my fav. are Light & Space and The Ravages of Time. The only critic i have for this album is maybe it should have a few more recognizable refrains. 9/10
