2 stars It seems I'm losing that Prog-Metal gene I once had.

I mean there are some essential releases from the past, that still work on me. But every new one I experience fails to amuse me. Now I long to Prog Metal which is eclectic, somewhat extreme, less cliched, closer to Post-Rock kind of Metal or something...Unfortunately, SYMPHONY X is a Power-Prog band, that kind of music I tend to dislike. There's nothing awful about "Paradise Lost", it's a solid but far too ordinary Power-Prog record. Melodies are forced to be equal to some standard, musicianship is good but amount of notes played makes you feel boring (have they ever heard of "less is more" principle?), and I simply can't get how this can be regarded as a Masterpiece. Tastes differ, and I'm happy to think that "Paradise Lost" filled someone's life with sense or just made it better. Sorry, it just didn't click on me. Recommended for genre's (traditional Power- Prog) fans only.
