5 stars Control and resistance is in my opinion an overlooked masterpiece. Since it is covered up by more popular and well known early progressive metal bands like Dream Theater and Fates warning, not a lot of people ever hear about Watchtower. What you get with this album is technical, progressive, thrash - jazz that is only comparable to Atheist or Psychotic waltz. The instrumentation on the album is great with all of the band members playing very well on their respective instruments. Most people agree that the singer is the weakest part of the album, but as a lover of high note hitting male singers, I really like the way he sings and how his voice sounds.

If you want some jazzy proggy technical thrash metal then try this album out. Not only will you enjoy the album, you also might grow on the singer and other singers like him. It was a worthy listen and a great album that really deserves more attention.
