5 stars An awesome come-back !!

Cynic's reunion has been expected with so much appetence and anxiety! The American Prog- Masters are together again and release a real masterpiece. ''Traced In Air'' came as a thunder and brought down every suspension on this (maybe) difficult and risky case of reunion.

Everything is perfect here.! Paul's guitar playing has never been better, demonstrating that nothing has changed. His charateristic vocals, dressed with a voice decoder, are so beautiful, sometimes depressed, and the melodies created are breath-taking. Sean's Reinert drum performing is so technical and difficult that convince even the most demanding listener. Sean's Malone bass playing is the always well-known virtuoso playing that every Cynic's fan knows. Tymon takes on the brutal vocals and replace Tony Teegarden, better than anyone else. His guitar playing is also perfect.

Cynic records an album that goes from Pure Death Progressive Metal to Jazz and Fusion Paths, from the Brutal to an Atmospheric heaven. The album's production is not only perfect, but also a seminario for every hard's sound producer. Cynic continues to compose and perform out-spaced Progressive Metal music, extremely difficult and technical, and seems most power and productive than ever.

''Traced In Air'' is one of the most amazing albums of the 00's. A real essential album for every fan of the Tech-Extreme-Death-Progressive Metal sound. 5 stars..!!
