4 stars Being a mediocore fan of Dream Theater, I was very eager to listen this album. The thin connection to Dream Theater disappears completely after listening this piece of music. Well, almost really. Musically, 03 A Trilogy Part 3 is very different from DT, but for my amusement, I find some similiar styles of singing in the work of Dominici and LaBrie. That may be my imagination or just pure desire to realize a connection between the two bands.

Nonetheless, I like this album very much. Yes, the eternal problem of defining the term 'progressive' is back again. There are great number of songs here, that have very simple structure. But some interesting structure ideas as well. The musicians are extremely talented, this album includes amazing solos, and some complicated compositions. This is an album, that needs more than just a couple of spins. Very catchy choruses and vocal melodies. Here we have both prog and non-prog factors in the album. I don't, and actually can't say anything else about the progness of this album.

What really gives me the vibes, are the massive mosh-your-as*-off-guitarriffs. There are couple of great riffs. Dominici's singing is very power metallish. I have been a fan of that genre from my childhood, so that is actually a very good flavor. The drummer is just great, marvelous, very talented.

This album has lots of stuff. Great riffs, marvelous, cathcy choruses, talented instrument playing, killer solos, high vocals, attitude, and of course, the key to all successful album: the obligatory epic hero guitar melody at the end of [B]March Into Hell[/B]. I recommend this album to any fan of metal and progmetal. This is very refreshing music from 21st century. It is not essential, as it doesn't satisfy a great number of prog or metal fans, but I still recommend it. Give it a try. 4/5 skeletons.
