4 stars I tried to keep myself from writing a hasty review after only two days of listening to this Album, but I'm just so pleased to have discovered Arena, that I can't wait to share my thoughts on this one. Being a hardcore prog metal fan, whose heart was torn apart after hearing there wouldn't be any follow up album after Liquid Tension Experiment 2, I've got to say that there's something about Arena, that is so dramatically appealing. Wonderful musicianship, passion in the playing, the late 90's prog sound is very generous in melodies, the vocals are somewhat exaggerated, but doesn't keep me from singing along. Lots of influences; Marillion, Floyd, Genesis, but these guys have something of there own, the guitar sounds great, a beautiful Guilmour tribute on the Serenity track, which I happen to appreciate a lot. I have to admit that I wish they'd sound a bit heavier by times, but that's just my own influences and tastes that kick in. Overall this albums keeps me coming back for more, and that's why I am here. Now if this doesn't sound like a recommendation, just go get yourself a copy and enjoy it (if you haven't already). Peace.
