4 stars When i first heard of this album, and that it was gonna feature 'growling' i laughed, really, i thought 'well this album is gonna be completly ruined' not that i hate death metal vocals or anything, i love them, just within the right context, but when i heard this album they just felt right, this is a brilliant wee album chocked with 12 highly melodic songs, some progg (ish) and some settle nicely within the 'melodeath' genre which i have to admit im a fan of. The second i heard the intro ONE MORE TIME i was floored, very powerful chorus as does over 80% of these songs, other examples include EUPHORIC, I TRIED and THIS IS WAR, the final track COMING HOME is a beautiful accoustic song and kinda ends the album on a slight downer, but a good downer in the least, La Brie's voice is the most powerful its been in years as well;

One More Time - 10/10 Jekyll Or Hyde - 8/10 Mislead - 8/10 Euphoric - 10/10 Over The Edge - 9/10 I Need You - 8/10 Who You Think I Am - 9/10 I Tried - 10/10 Just Watch Me - 9/10 This Is War - 10/10 Superstar - 8/10 Coming Home - 10/10

CONCLUSION; a solid solid release by the Dream Theater frontman and highly enjoyable
