3 stars Long before Dream Theater were making Progressive Metal as big as it is today, there was one band who took elements of Progressive Rock and blended it with Heavy Metal. That band was Fates Warning.

Back in the early 80's when the metal world was going crazy for Metallica and the rise of Thrash Metal, Fates Warning quietly unleashed this gem upon the world, to little or no mainstream recognition.

Understandably this is far from the group's best work, and nowhere near as complex or mature as albums like 'A Pleasant Shade of Grey'. However there are some pretty cool tunes here which sadly have been neglected over the years. In fact, this record probably has more in common with a band like Iron Maiden than it does other Prog Rock acts of the 70's and 80's, only the musicianship doesn't seem as impressive to be honest.

A good album if you're a fan of Fates Warning and if you can find this cheap, but definitely not something to cry about if you can't find.

Valarius | 3/5 |
