4 stars The Damnation Game is really a good album, perhaps one of the bests of Symphony X. Mainly why he is the first with the vocalist Russell Allen, the "sacred monster" of prog metal (Daniel Gildenllow only can compete with him). Then the vocals are no less than generous. Despite his horrific cover (a demon playing violin for a young girl?Oh my God!). There are good moments for sure the best are the title-track, the mini-epic The Edge of Forever , the beautiful Whispers (perhaps the best ballad the band ever) and the closer A Winter's Dream. The rest of the music is good, however there is nothing to compare to these. But this album is one of the strongest in the band's discography, though here on the site he gets mixed reviews.

4 stars!
