4 stars First off I'd like to say regardless of what genre this album falls into by some people's standard's this is a VERY good album. To me, being able to turn a song as simple as Arriving Somewhere... into a 12 minute masterpiece is quite progressive. More progressive than the wankfest known as Dream Theater could ever hope to be.

That said, this album offers a nice progression in PT's overall sound. For me this album has a slightly better flow to it than In Absentia while not suffering too much from a lack of diversity. Highlights include the above mentioned Arriving Somewhere but not Here, Lazarus, and Mellotron Scratch. Lazarus is one of the most beautiful songs PT has ever written with a nice piano melody and catchy chorus. Mellotron finds Wilson at his best as far as vocal harmonies are considered, and Arriving is an intense tour de force with a great metallish middle section to keep you on your toes.
