2 stars I know, I know, but how can I resist? This guy got _thrown out_ of Dream Theater. :D :D :D

Obviously Dominici didn't get the boot for being too subtle because his new album is packed full of battle-axe metal dross. Any concessions to progressiveness are made mostly in the form of non-sequitur instrumental sections or else reside in the themes and lyrics which feign a modern topicality and relevance and are quite honestly terrible, although that's to be expected - it's not fair to rely on hard rock dorks to provide you with poignant social commentary. Additionally, in this case, it's not even fair to expect much entertainment.

This is just another Ayreon style album with a little more US power metal influence, still showcasing the cod-Metallica, cod-Opeth, cod-Maiden, cod-Queensryche, cod-music mastered twenty years ago with no innovation since power-prog sound which, during its short life-span, has evolved into the most stagnant hall-of-mirrors in all of progressive rock. Yes, it's very well played by some bored masters of their art. Yes, it's valid headbanging material. For all that, if you're not a fan of this strain of supposedly intelligent metal then this album won't change your mind, and if you are, you likely own at least five better versions of 03 A 03 Trilogy 03 Part 03, and that's plenty.

Someone give this genre a little more design space; it's incest out here.
