3 stars This album is equaly far from being materpiece and from being crap. It is very well performed (what else could one expect from DT?) but musically mediocre album. There are many borrowed tunes (Pink Floyd, Tool, Muse, Marillion, Iron Maiden, you can even trace some moments from Jesus Christ Supestar and Trouble) which shows you lack of creativity, composing abilitties, and genearl absence of genius. However album is enjoyable listen, and musicianship is of highest degree as always (they just cannot play it badly, can they?). All in all it's 3 stars band coming up with 3 stars album. I can't see anything exciting in it, and all the huge agio around just proves that Mediocrity Reigns.
