5 stars BLOODY HELL! Cliffhanger II is possible the coolest progressive song I have ever heard. The rest of the album is legendary too. I hear all these complaints about an apparent lack of flow of their work, which is a load of barnacles to be honest. Basically Shadow Gallery require A LOT of concentration, they are the pinnacle of progressive ideas and techniques and incredibly stimulating. They make Dream Theater appear like a radio-friendly punk band in comparison, and THAT is what people are complaining about. But in truth, prog metal is all about breaking boundaries and Shadow Gallery are without a doubt a simply better intellectual outfit than Dream Theater. But Dream Theater are a great stepping stone for getting into bands like Shadow Gallery. The culmination of every progressive twist and turn is in this album and I simply adore it, it's incredibly stimulating and admittedly took me many listens to fully appreciate. Give them a chance and this band will woo you like no girl can. You can get the mp3 for Cliffhanger II from - I need say no more!
