4 stars As you may already know, this is their last album with Rod Tyler. I think that the vocals are great on this CD actually (not saying that they're better than Allen's). This CD is probably not produced as well as any of their others but I think that the tone of the guitar is actually very good, and the sound is still good and I don't find it to take away from the songs. This album has a good representation of both ballads and metal often in the same song such as "A Lesson Before Dying" which I think is one of the best songs here but not at my initial impression. There are no songs that I don't like on this album.

I could be mistaken (Although I have listened to this many times) but I don't think that there is as much alternating guitar/keyboard soloing which I think is sort of a unique thing about Symphony X(having them that is). But the guitar solo's are excelent, and Example of a great one (though they're all great) is the one in "The Reaging Seansons". But as usual for symphony X (and as it should be) the fancy guitar work is not all saved for the solos, and same for the keyboard.

I have heard that Symphony X would like to Record a new version of this Album, if they do then I recommend buying both versions.
