4 stars The first time I heard the song 'Communion and the Oracle' (my first taste of Symphony X) I thought, this is pretty good. But, as with most progressive music it takes a couple more listens for you to realise when something is in fact awesome. When this realisation dawned on me I went and bought this album, and was most certainly not disappointed. Obviously there is cheese. But I suppose that must be expected with Symphony X's Dream Theater-influenced style. The quotes from Verdi's requiem, though obviously not original, are used well in the context of the piece as a whole, and I love most of all some of the orchestral breaks. Also this is a must have for fans of technical-but- sensitive shred. Woo for neoclassical metal!!
