3 stars Angular Perceptions is simply another good album from INSIDEOUT label, a genuine prog metal with some fusion and jazz influences, well produced and well played, while not being so original. The album starts in a very good way. First three/four tracks are very stunning, SACRED TREASURE in particular, a masterpiece. Unfortunately after some time and listens the album will sound quite boring and repetitive while not being so long (only about 55 minutes). ANGULAR PERCEPTIONS needs many listens too, so don't throw it away after first time.

A short track to track:

PREMONITIONS introduce in a nice way the album, with a powerful guitar riff supported by nice pad sounds. (/)

Second track, SACRED TREASURE, is a really varied, well played and amazing track. Chorus is awesome, instrumental section also more. Seven minutes will become way less. (8)

A LEGEND'S AVALON is more a easy listen track with a catchy and a bit banal chorus. Anyway the whole track sounds nice, especially instrumental section. (6.5)

BALANCE OF ONE has a stunning riff with a good keyboard job supporting the guitar's powerful groove. Singer make amazing vocals in this one. Again a nice instrumental. Anyway, a bit boring in the end. (7--)

MR QWINKLE'S THERAPY is an amazing and funny instrumental. Stunning. (7+)

With next track, TRANSMIGRATION OF SOULS, the album starts being boring. The whole song is nice, well played but it's far away from precedent tracks. (6+)

GOD OF OBLIQUE is so catchy but it has simply no substance, nothing will remain after listening to it. Nice riff, anyway. (6+)

SILENT SHORE is a slow ballad and is quite good. Ethereal athmosphere. Nice guitar solo and good job in general. (7+)

The instrumental ACCIDENTLY ON PURPOSE is a boring instrumental, only technical exhibition. (5.5)

Outro A MIND BEYOND is a nice track and a nice ending, with a weird and cool riff. Nice vocals. (7)

Being a debut, this is a good work. Try again for more. (7-) / 3 stars
