5 stars The only essential Edge Of Sanity album.

This album takes the Thick As A Brick approach of one album, one song. the music is mostly in the Opeth vein, only with less acoustic sections, and a greater emphasis on the guitar riffs. and what riffs! I have no idea how he did it, but after years of churning out primitive death metal riffs, Dan Swano managed to come up with an endless bag of awesome guitar riffs, all of them instantly memorable and hard rocking. The vocals are equally good, as Swano alternates between great death growls and beautifull, epic-sounding clean singing. this album doesn't really have anything other then those riffs and the vocals, but goddamnit, it doesn't need anything else! the 40 minutes never feel overlong, and nothing on here is annoying or boring.

A Masterpiece.
