2 stars This album (I don't have the first two) does not apply to the 5 star option "Essential: a masterpiece of progressive music" due to it's not all too original. I hear little hints of Psychotic Waltz, and Tool in it. If you want repetition through "Progressive Metal" (Not that Dead Soul Tribe is progressive really) then you will enjoy this group. I wouldn't call it an "Excellent addition to any prog music collection" (4 stars) either. There are numerous flaws. A reason why I don't listen to mainstream teeny-bopper music, punk rock, and nu- metal-ish musicians is mainly because they all blur together until you realize each of those groups just have one track. The chords on guitar are not different enough and the drummer is not able enough to make something unique in itself. Imagine what Dead Soul Tribe would sound like if you just listened to bass guitar for each song. Imagine what Dead Soul Tribe would sound like if you just listened to the guitar. How entertaining would it be? If musicians can't stand up and play something skillful by themselves, how do they come together and make something worthwhile? I make this album sound like a piece of trash, and really on a PROGRESSIVE site it is, but due to the plague of 'progressive metal' groups that aren't prog (Tool, Anathema, Etc.) it appears people here do enjoy the modern metal scene. And it does exclude prog. If you like Psychotic Waltz and Tool get this album. You will enjoy it.

2 Stars, not necessarily awful, but 2 star to display "Collectors/fans only"
