Prog Reviewer
4 stars I will begin like BobFrank on my review, nice and catchy tunes but not a masterpiece and not a prog album in my opinion, only fiew passages here and there but as a whole sounds sometimes like hard rock tipical for early '70. For sure is a good album, and has very good lyrics , but not one of the milestones albums from prog. They have to do more with hard-heavy side, in the years to come they become one of the intetlectual band from metal, and it's clear that is the main purpose here, not to sound like a prog band (for ex. Genesis) but not to sound like heavy bands from early '70 (Black Sabbath), they've done a mixture and the result is Secret treaties. In fact i think that this album has a typical american sound. So, highlights include "Dominance and Submission", "Flaming Telepaths and the Cagey Cretins. Worth listening, 3,5 rounded to 4.
