5 stars Out of all the four essential Death albums (Human, Individual Thought Patterns, Symbolic and The Sound Of Perseverance), this is for sure the one that I enjoy the most. I'm still not a big fan of it, but each of the tracks is very complex, and you can tell each of the musicians, Chuck Schuldiner to be more specific, is much more mature than when they first started.

This record extends the mastery of the fusion of Death Metal & prog that they achieved with their widely touted record Symbolic. The tracks are also more experimental, it's noticeable with instrumental tracks like Voice Of The Soul, or by how the songs are, on average, longer.

Essential record to any Death Metal collection.
