3 stars Damian Wilson has it. You know the 'it' that so many singers seek but rarely find? Good genetic material gave Damian a great voice. Not a powerful one, not a dramatic one but very original. You don't hear much of this tone in music now. Mainstream market is searching for new Kurt Cobain and ends up with Chad Kroeger from Nickelback. So when bands like System of a Down enters the market with fresh new vocals, there is hope for a change, therefore Threhold's vocalist should get your attention.

Wilson's voice is mainly the key to a great Threshold album. This one not very old but feels old. Perhaps the production of Karl Groom is the reason. Wounded Land has a rather late 80's sound like Operation Mindcrime (Queensryche) or Through the Looking Glass (Shadowlands). Not a bad thing if you're alone and nostalgic, but playing this in presence of my wife will cost me serious making out time. The efficient lady turn off in my humble opinion.

To get a better album with Wilson in command would be Extinct Instinct. But, Wounded Land is still an above average record with the usual power house chords and clever environmentalistic lyrics, with this time more song variety than Clone or Hypothetical. This album kinda parts from the other Threshold records by it's application to not overdo the same techniques over and over again (unlike Hypothetical and so on).

Threshold is seriously concerned about the ecology in this record. How about that for a change?
