5 stars When I heard on the new Fates Warning album, I was really excited of having it. And when I got the CD, at first, I was a bit disappointed. Maybe I was just used to listening to prog metal the way like Drram Theater is playing it. But then again after frequent plays, I have learned the deepness of album. It not just the heavy intricate guitar riffs plus complex drumming that makes a prog album great. I think the strongholds of this album are the moods it take us - from heavy and aggressive "Left Here" and "Simple Human" to the slow and restful "River Wide Ocean Deep". And the pattern repaets until the concluding "Wish". My favorite song here is of course "Another Perfect Day". Songs like this is what I miss with Fates Warning... and also the beautiful guitar solo. This album also proves that Ray Alder is truly one of the greatest prog metal vocalist. For me, this is their greatest album. Heavy yet mature, lyrically genuis. A collectible for a prog metal fans.
