4 stars Highly recommended masterwork of modern progressive metal, with touches of classic prog, post-rock and electronica. The production is immaculate, fully absorbing and deeply satisfying. The centerpiece here is "Mob Mentality" (#2), which amounts to one of the most impressive combinations of orchestra and rock band. The use of different vocalists is also very rewarding, and makes the listening experience even more interesting. The compositions are deep and thought-provoking, the lyrics brooding and philosophical, and the vocal performance (especially from Lajon Witherspoon) is exemplary. I rate "A Dream in Static" as one of the best prog albums of 2015, and also one of the best concept albums in recent years. It's very accessible yet dynamic and exciting. One big music trip which starts in hell and ends in heaven. People who say prog is dead don't know what they're talking about - this album proves what 99% of the world is missing.
