4 stars Back in 2005, if you asked anyone, Hey remember that guy who sang on DT's debut? What was his name again? Oh, yeah, Charlie Dominici. You would have been met with the response of: Who? or just a blank stare. Also at that point, that same man, Mr. Dominici was recording the first part of the O3 Trilogy, his first album since leaving the music biz in 1990. While O3 A Trilogy - Part 1 isn't his comeback album, it sets the stage for the success that would follow Part 2 in 2007.

Part 1 is entirely acoustic, it's just Charlie on an acoustic guitar, accompanied by his vocals and the occasional harmonica. This is not the prog metal that would be present on the final two parts of the trilogy. But this does not mean that this is a bad album. The album shows that it is influenced by Bob Dylan, in fact in one of the songs I thought I heard a melody similar to that of Eleanor Rigby.

The concept of the album is that of a terrorist coming to a foreign land and recieving orders to soon carry out a supreme act of biological terrorism (the title of the trilogy is familiar to many chem nerds.)

There is not a bad song to be found on this album, altough there are a couple of glitches in the musicianship (sorry Charlie), they don't even register. The songs are very simplistic, and are a nice break from the technical wankery of traditional prog metal.

Recommended for all prog fans!!!

P.S. You can get an autographed copy from the band's website, while supplies last.
