3 stars Although still highly rated among his albums, as I can see from the ratings, I don't see this one on par with Terria or Biomech. Songwriting is simpler and the songs are less progressive. Deadhead is my favourite track from the album - but it does not bring anything new to the table. "Suicide" starts with tasty doom metal riffing before falling to the more conventional DT territory. "Away" is memorable for its repetitive riff. The bonus tracks provide an interesting perspective on DT: good ambient electronic music that you wouldn't find on any other album in Progarchives ;-) Overall, "Accelerated Evolution" may be a good and accessible introduction to DT's already large discography.
