3 stars Agreed: This is the most accessible (to a non-metal head) DT album in 10-15 years, and, yes, these are polished musicians who seem to have a fresh spark inspiring them again, but, this is not, IMHO, a masterpiece. There is so little here that is truly new or fresh or (sorry folks!) 'progressive'--though, given, they are prog rockers. The music I feel deserve masterpiece status are those that are pushing the boundaries of familarity--the Yugens, Skes, After Cryings, Toby Drivers, Omar Rodriguez-Lopezes, Karda Estras, North Sea Radio Orchestra, etc., etc. "Far From Heaven" is my fave here (strings over double-kick bass drum pedals any day!) 3.5 stars rated down cuz this kind of music is a dime a dozen and not for my collection.
