2 stars Here you will read a review from a non guitar player (I just try to play).

The album has a good sound, heavy riffs and all of that. But the problem is in the ideas. It's like a try-to-repeat the good heavy songs of Dream Theater, of course, instrumentally, with the same sound, the same concept, and finally you have a weak album with little new stuffs to offer. It seems like Petrucci had lost his inspiration being far for Portnoy and company.

I think collectors/fans only is a good description, because all in all you won't waste your time listening it (if you like the genre), but if you're searching for good new progresive rock for your collection, skip this one.

The highlights go together: Damage Control and Curve, although this last one is almost a Satriani song (make this exercise: take Curve and put it into the middle of "The Extremist". it fits perfectly) Maybe that's a reason why I think it's a good song.
