5 stars After two great albums Symphony X released what I believe to be their greatest achievement, 'The Divine Wings of Tragedy'.

Fans of Dream Theater and other Progressive Metal bands will like what Symphony X have to offer and this album has it all on display in full. Michael Romeo's awesome neo-classical guitar playing is some of the best you will ever hear, and his dueling with Keyboard player Michael Pinella is on the same level as John Petrucci and Jordan Rudess. And Russell Allen's agressive yet melodic vocals have yet to be matched.

Although every song on this album is a classic, I think the main two to look out for are 'The Accolade' and the title track. Both full of amazing twists and turns, taking you on a whole new musical experience. And songs like the 'Eyes of Medusa' work perfectly with Romeo's heavy, crunchy guitar and Pinella's melodic keyboards.

Most Prog Metal, and most Metal people in general, will like this. And old-school Prog Rock fans may even enjoy some of Symphony X's softer moments too.

Valarius | 5/5 |
