3 stars I always considered Fates Warning to be inferior to many 90's prog metal bands but you have to admit that they were one of the first ones on the scene. The 80's prog metal scene was closer to heavy metal than any other decade later.

Fates Warning is a relatively good Iron Maiden clone here minus Iron Maiden songwriting skills. I think each FW member picked one IM member to imitate and they succeed here. Guitar playing is quite good. Vocals were an acquired taste for me but somehow I got used to them and they fit heavy metal well enough.

If you're looking for a heavy metal album, there are many better ones, even from 1984. Do not expect anything progressive here yet; as a result, this album for collectors only. I don't have a large heavy metal collection and therefore I kept it in my library for the straightforward energetic heavy metal mood.
