2 stars This is good power metal album, highly driven by Iron Maiden's influence but that is all that can be said. Rhytms and vocals are too monotone, its solid and strong sound is enugh to put this as good power metal album, but I stil think that Symphony X are not progressive metal band, or they may be, but very weak prog musicians then. Symphonic elements are just not enough to me.Keyboards do not make some music progressive. Riffs are, in my opinion driven by Pantera, vocals by Iron Maiden, keyboards by various symphonic artists. This is good to hear, but it does not make effect to my vision of progressive metal.
