On "The Detached", Anubis Gate pretty much continue where they left off with "Andromeda Unchained", although keyboards and electronics seem to have been given a slightly more prominent role on "The Detached".

There are no weak tracks on this CD as such, but my personal favorites are "Find a Way (Or Make One)", "Yiri", "Lost In Myself" (which starts out with a Queensr˙che-style great guitar harmony riff), the epics "Options - Going nowhere" and "Pyramids", with its many Middle Eastern elements and 90s Depeche Mode-ish electronics, and "Bloodoath" which has a number of Invocator-like qualities.

While the Queensr˙che and Fates Warning influences are still there, I think this album is beyond Queensr˙che-taken-to-the-next-level - I think this album is an original prog metal treasure just waiting to be unearthed by the international prog metal fan community (so, Mike Portnoy, consider including Anubis Gate on the next Prog Nation Tour, huh ;-) )

If you're into prog metal, you're likely to love this album.
