4 stars Third album aswell their swansong and the best from all 3 is a real killer in prog metal zone, never being to popular or treated as should be. I bought this album together with Mind games since they were released almost 15 years ago, I quite remember the day, very cloudy and rainy day, never wanted to go outside to do anything, but I've heared at raidio a piece promoting the album, it was Fly Away, real treat for prog metal listners. So I've jumped outside and getit these two albums, since then they were constantly spining. So, The edge released in 1997 is by far the best they eaver done, soon they disbands without reason because the album was very well recived both by fans and critics, who knows what happend. This album took me some time to fully appreciated, but in the end Th edge shows his face to me and become a great progressive metal album in my cllection. The music Eternity X offers on this album is for sure much more mature and progressive aswell, with complec moves, better composed and with some intristing ideas overall. Here are no more that power metal cliches, the on left are very well meted with progressive metal elements, in the end a great album in this field. As one of the members said in an interview in amgazin from country when the album was released, that they music is much more close to what Queensryche done in their best period, rather then another DT clones. So, all pieces are good they flow one to anothe rvery well, great vocals and good musicianship make from this album a great addition to any prog metal lover. never realy fuuly appreciated by larger public intrested in this kind of music, some of them said that this release is a pale copy of what DT or Queensryche done years ago, not at all agry with them, this release and specialy this album don't copy anyone, they were in a period when prog metal was a popular genre, not like doday when all sounds alike. So I will give 4 stars to The edge, an album not quite fuly appreciated at their full value. 3 members from this band , soon after dibanded band, formed another great progressive metal band named Exhibition also featured here in PA. Recommend to those who have some intrest in prog metal, and not in some lame and boring music offerd by some bands today.
