4 stars This is basically Fates Warning reunited with their old vocalist. John Arch has a distinctive voice, very high-pitched wailing style even by 80s metal standards, Sympathetic Resonance sports a sound similar to recent Fates Warning releases - technical (with wild drumming) and dense, but with one crucial difference - songs are longer and unconventionally structured, but, thankfully, not sacrificing listenability. If there one thing I'd like to note, though, its that the epic songs (there are also two quasi-ballads here), for their sheer size, could have been more varied. Its like a 90-percent pounding with only a brief respite or an instrumental surprise here and there.
