3 stars Here is a USA band that makes heavy progressive rock featuring very alternating and dynamic compositions, loaded with shifting moods (mellow with classical piano to metal with heavy metal-riffs), propulsive drumming (often in the metal-vein) and many spectacular soli on keyboards and guitar (fiery and biting). The vocals (not my favorite element on this CD) evoke the sound of the Eighties like Spandau Ballet, often with a bit wailing/dramatic undertone. This is a promising band, personally I'm more pleased with their less self- indulgent and more varied approach of progmetal than Dream Theater but I think that all those millions fans who are hailing and praising Dream Theater on Prog Archives should give this band a chance. Not every part of this CD can keep my attention but most compositions deliver lots of interesting and exciting moments. So Dimension X have to mature in their compositions but THIS IS A PROMISING DEBUT-CD!
