4 stars This is almost as good as it gets! The unique voice of ex Fates Warning vocalist John Arch, combined with the always impeccable and extremely talented drummer Mike Portnoy (the biggest hero in prog metal history!!!), the prog wonder Jim Matheos (who also worked with Mikey on the O.S.I. project) on the guitars and keyboards and "The Engine Man" Joey Vera to slap the bass around! This is one hell of a set up!

This is prog in its purest form, I think. Although it is only an EP with two . nicely long - songs on it, it is worth the cash. The sound is great - Portnoy's drums sounds exactly the way they are supposed to sound! - and the songs are well composed - as the minutes run, they keep on developing and moving forward... they are so fucking tight!

And an extra bonus: The booklet is so beautiful! :o)
