5 stars Room V. What can I say that hasn't already been said many times?

This long-awaited sequel to Tyranny is the ultimate achievement for Shadow Gallery, both lyrically and musically. Toping everything they did before, coming out with an unusually well-crafted production, blending awesome songs and wonderful musicianship.

Any attempt to review this album is doomed to failure, as its content is far beyond any word. Just go out, buy it along with Tyranny and simply ENJOY one of the most exciting musical concept ever heard in progressive metal. Every track is great. The rythm section is groovy and smooth, the guitar play is incredibly intelligent, while Mike Baker's vocals fit perfectly over the top.

My suggestion : lend a peaceful ear to "Death of Mother". You'll get hooked in a minute, then compelled to listen to the whole thing, again and again.

A killer record. While lying underneath such marvels as Riverside's Second Life Syndrome or DT's S.F.A.M., it still deserves a frank 5 stars-rating. Unique and precious.
