3 stars Threshold's second album with Damian Wilson back at the mike is somewhat slower and simpler affair (songs average 5 minutes with repetitive structure) than its bombastic predecessor. But pretty much sticks to the familiar formula of catchy heavy rock with adult-oriented rock and atmospheric Pink Floyd bits. It's designed for fist pumping and singing along alright, but I kinda feel a lack of inspiration. It's not that it's not very proggy, but too much here is repetitive and reminds of what we've heard on their records before - always a problem with such bands, but even more so. They could write such songs in their sleep. It looks more and more like the bands that started the new wave of heavy prog in the 90s, such as Dream Theater and Threshold, are running out of steam.
