4 stars This is excellent , tight, well-constructed prog-metal. It has the usual ingredients of heavy guitar riffs, exotic keyboards and plenty of solos. What Threshold have in addition, is strong melodic vocal lines rather than tuneless growls and these are excellently performed by Mac. (Is there a better prog-metal vocalist?) 'Pilot in the Sky of Dreams' is a minor masterpiece, with different moods, beautiful ballady sections interspersed with wilder instrumental passages, and interesting lyrics. 'Safe to Fly' is ther other highlight with, again, a strong vocal line. The shorter tracks are usually quite catchy. The absence of a second guitarist gives more space for keyboard solos. Altogether, a fine effort.
