4 stars A very good, solid power/prog metal album.

This album is much harder than Symphony X previous album, The oddysey. Sadly for symphony loving progheads, the orchestra sound is removed this time, making place for a louder prog metal sound. I find the music techniqually more advanced than before, but at the same time less prog and more metal. However there's no doubt to call this prog-metal. It starts out with a little bit of stereotypical intro, with choirs and orchestra. You will not hear much of that orchestra after this intro. The rest of the albums track are very similar in style and sound, but they are still variated. Some of them are the fast, pounding Set the World on Fire, the very load Domination, the beutiful ballad Paradise Lost and the epic The Walls Of Babylon. There are no really let downs, but relelation and The Sacrifice are not very good and feels like fillers. Elsewhere, this is a very good metal album, and if you are a progger who likes load music you will appreciate this.
