4 stars i've always enjoyed Fates Warning later stuff like A PLEASANT SHADE OF GRAY and DISSCONNECTED (didn't enjoy FWX don't know why) but i really thought of listening to some of FW late 80s to early 90s music since they were real big around that time starting the prog metal scene. I loved PARALLELS and i even like INSIDE OUT but i've heard that this album was a special one as well. I finally got PERFECT SYMMETRY and at first i was like whatha heck. well first off this is the bands debut album with totally underrated and yet awesome drummer known as MARK ZONDER second of all this yet another grand step for FW to get under the skin of prog metal. Boy they sure did this cd was very hard for me to understand at first spin because it is just so Complex but now i finally understand it and its awesome. Definitley a great blend of Queensryche vocals from RAY ALDER awesome metal guitar duo's from Frank and Jim in a very Black Sabbath progressive vein, not really into JIM DIBIASE that much on this cd well basically cause i think joey vera is the better bass player in this band. Anyway almost all these songs are great with great complexity of rhythm awesome solos, great fill-ins with drums, and plus a very playful cocky change of moods you notice very well in this album. about the only song i don't like is A WORLD APART but everything else rocks as you see Fates Warning in fine progressive metal vein. 4 stars
