5 stars I'm longtime proghead. But I was unfamiliar with progmetal until I read some article in internet about present progressive rock music some 5 years ago. It was in this article that I have heard about Dream Theatre, Spock's Beard , The Flower Kings etc. I have found and downloaded mp3 files of SFAM album. I didn't understand anything. It was mistery to me why this band is so popular. I have tried to listen to it later. Nothing. Then later I've tried to listen to them with earphones in a music-shop: overall ipmression was much better and heaviness of sound was not so "heavy" to me. Then, after a couple of months I found a MC tape of this album in a store and decided to buy it as it was not so expensive in case I will throw it away. I put it in my car MC player and. I had to force myself to pull it away after two months of nonstop listening. But it took only one week and this MC was in my player again: I couldn't stand not to listen to it again. It was something of obsession.

SFAM is really beautiful experience. For those who give less than 4 stars I have to recommend to try it once more and it will surely happen. Unless you totally dislike heavy guitars and drums and do not want to change your mind. For those progheads who are unfamiliar with SFAM - buy it. It is a true masterpiece. Even if you will not like it, this album is a must for all progheads.
