5 stars First of all...i HATE growling and the music thats related to it!!! So imagine my surprise when i first listened to this wonderfull record (as i expected something roaringly ugly) Sure, there are hints and allegations of that "kind" of music...but hey...this is GOOD... Fantastic songs...extremely well executed...Gildenlow are really a GOD in terms of prog- heavy after another fabulous number unfolds before your very ears!!! Actually iŽd bet a months wage..that youŽll love this record..even if your the hardest "non-heavy"-prog fan. Every track on this fantastic album unwinds one supreme number after the other. Ive never heard nothing like it...DreamTheater seems like amateurs in the "surprise element factor"..a that says a lot! Sorry guys.... but thats the way i feel..after listening to this ..absolutely fabulous GEM!! One minute ..youŽre relaxing on the couch...the next...crawling on the walls!! Thats the feeling i got, listening to this record!!! And hey ...special mention- to the fantastic guitarwork also. In all, these guys are just about the best thing youŽll hear this year (and the next).Yeah i know..that can be said..for a quite a few other items as well...isnt it just a lovely world!?? So dear friends, of prog (heavy an all)...this is a... MUST HAVE !!!! Just listen to the title track: " The Perfect element"...a perfect..ahem... element.. to..prove my point !!! By the way...i own the limited edition (2 cd) with the 4 extra numbers!!

Thats all for now....but really...GET THIS RECORD !!!
