5 stars Now we're talking. After albums which displayed real inconsitency, and a tendency to soften up their sound, ToT is DT's most heavy, most uncompromising album, hence the low reviews. As I am is the single here, and therefore the weakest present, but is still a real rip-snorter, fantastic live. The next three songs are all stunning examples of how to write mid-length prog metal, each having a unique character. Endless sacrifice and Honour thy father actually remind me, in terms of song structure, of Selling England era Genesis. Endless sacrifice is, so far, DT's best instrumental, and it is followed by In the name of god, a monstrous mini-epic, only bettered in the genre by Redemption's Sapphire, and featuring the least appropriate use of funk you will ever find; it is, after all, about mass suicide. Anyway, this album is the DT album you must own.
