3 stars A good but somewhat insecure debut album, which often was the case of those early 90's prog-metal debuts, and the band would get better by the time of their next album. The production is awful but the playing displays the bands talent well enough barring some uneven songwriting. Im glad they got rid of Rod Tyler on vocals after this one though as he really drags down the music in spots (could be the unbalanced production that does this to a degree though) and his voice doesn't complement the music as well as Russel Allen would do on later SymX albums. You can hear hints of what to come and tracks like the 12 minute closening epic really do stand out here. Personally I prefer Michael Romeo's solo debut (also released in 94) over this one but I urge any SymX fan to check them both out.
