Prog Reviewer
3 stars The First Coming...

Originally spotted in 2005, this is the only known recording of the elusive guitarist in its natural habitat.

The Good: It's John "mother f*cking" Petrucci!!

The Bad: Tunnel Vision is a brilliant composition but it really should end at 3:45 as the reprise brings nothing to the song... then it really really should end again at 5:25... but instead it just meanders on for another minute, like an alcoholic trying to find his way home before puking up all over the front porch in an orgy of shredding.

The Verdict: 'Suspended Animation' isn't particularly progressive and for that reason I give it three stars. Having said that, if it consisted solely of tracks 2 through 6 then I would be very tempted to give it four.

Starhammer | 3/5 |
