3 stars A double studio album within the Heavy Prog genre is very rare. From the top of my head, I cannot remember any other albums like this.

Nominally, this is Heavy Prog. But that's in name only. The vast majority of the stuff here is progressive metal and even experimental metal. Think Dream Theater and Pantera. There is a lot of the latter one here. Add a bit Slipknot, Bush and Korn to this mix too. This album is a child of our time. In particular, disc 2. The first disc has a lot of modern rock too and is not as metal as the second disc.

This is not a concept album, TDW is stressing. But sometimes, this album feels like a concept album. The musicianship and vocals are good. Unfortunate, this two hours long offering from TDW is very ambitious, but sadly comes up short in the quality stake. The material is good, but not particular memorable and great. The two hours trundles on without really offering greatness. Some sporadic great melody lines and details shows up now and then. But nothing here is really bad either so TDW has pulled this off to a large degree. A middle of the tree rating would suffice here.
