5 stars When it comes to sizzling, metal-edged progressive rock, Mastermind's masterminds Bill and Rich Berends have it all figured out. With elements of metal, jazz, and classical music in a solid rock base, "Angels Of The Apocalypse" has Emerson, Lake & Palmer-ish power without sounding derivative (except on the bracing, stunningly engaging revision of ELP's "The Endless Enigma," of course). Their dynamic compositions and outstanding soloing are up with the best in prog, but their greatest strength is their energy; their vigorous, gripping performances make 6-minute tracks feel like focused bursts, and even the long album opener "The End Of The World" never wanes. On top of all that, singer Lisa Bouchelle is a true revelation, with a rich, magnificently expressive voice that she never wastes wailing or shrieking any unnecessary high notes. This is a truly awesome record, essential for progheads and a worthy purchase for all fans of sizzling rock musicianship.
