4 stars Wow!Excellent Brit power prog metal and one of the most fantastic sound in the history of modern metal!This are not at all big words,no way,it's only a simple conclusion after a few minutes of audition of this sensational album!In fact,what maket this album even more sensational,are the great,absolutelly stunning vocals of GLYNN MORGAN,which delivers on this album a passionated interpretation of some really crunchy metal sounds!I never thought that KARL GROOM,which is very routined in the neoprog area,is capable to offer such heavy guitar riffs and such a metal attitude!After a LIVE album ,unfortunatelly Morgan left THRESHOLD and made 2 brilliant metal albums with his own band MINDFEED.I think that MORGAN was the perfect vocalist for THRESHOLD,putting in the best evidence the tremendeous componistic talent of GROOM,and that's because the clever agressivity,almost rage of his voice and a little dramatic vocal attitude too!!INNOCENT is the best example in my oppinion,and I've realised that he composed this track,because we found this one on the first MINDFEED album too!The sensational duels between the guitar and the modern keyoards is another ace in the pocket of the THRESHOLD's music,and it';a always attractive to see how long instrumental passages in the middle of the songs are capturing the attention of the listeners especially because of this thing!Most of the songs are midtempo and heavy,with changing rhythms and the album doesn't has any weak composition and no minute of boredom or monotone atmosphere!Simply excellent!The debut album was with DAMIAN WILSON ,which mades a more inspired come back on the third studio album of the band,but he never was ok for THRESHOLD!Damian doesn't have a powerful metal voice and even now,I amuse myself when I think that WILSON had auditioned for IRON MAIDEN after Bruce Dickinson left the band!!!In conclusion this album is the best THRESHOLD album,and it's impossible to see in the future a better one, simply because GLYNN MORGAN "has left the building"! 4,5 well deserved stars for a kick ass power prog metal album!Almost a monument!
