4 stars OK, now this is the kind of progressive metal that usually grabs that entertains from beginning to end by taking the time to present a variety of emotions through the use of aggressive, heavy passages peppered with truly beautiful acoustic moments that showcase the vocalist's range and power. Everything here is working in perfect harmony. There really is never a dull moment. Keyboards play an important part in progressive metal and this album is a shining example of it being applied perfectly. From subtle washes of acoustic keys and synths to powering very technical passages along to goose-bump inducing heights, the song writing is of a very high caliber. The guitarist is no slouch either. it's that prog-metal lead that just defines the genre. it's the kind of album that reminds me why i have always enjoyed this kind of stuff........simply put, this is one kick-ass release, and very highly recommended!
