3 stars A good album, but not amongst PT's best works. Although Supid Dream has some great songs, it isnt a very balanced album, alternating between amazing tracks like A Smart Kid or Pure Narcotic and boring, go-nowere songs like Tinto Brass and Slave Called Shiver. Compared to PT's recent works this one is more relaxed and mellow, as the hard distortion driven guitars seen since In Absentia had not been introduced yet, but dont let that put you off, the atmosphere created by this album although serene is pretty intense, and you can feel that PT magic working through your emotions, but sometimes all goes into flatline and suddenly you fell asleep due to the lack of real dinamics and diversity throughout the album.

Overall it is an ok album, but it doesnt catch you all the way through like other PT albums do, maybe its because i'm used to more diverse albums by the band, or that i'm not that mutch into the more spacey prog thing they do.

Moonshield | 3/5 |
