5 stars Finally,our beloved band managed to release this ambitious project-a triple album,charged with 2 DVDs and a great LIVE cd...a dream that comes true,a great achievement for this extremelly talanted band-one of the surest values of the American prog rock scene -crossover prog-or I don't know how to call their style?Anyway-on this triple album,we can admire the amazing technical capacities of the band and the great talent at compositions too!On stage- the guys are like a fish in the bowl-relaxed and masters of their own skills,which are very impressive,I must say!MARK BOALS is trully inspired and fits better and better with the band,he finds here an unique vocal style-really different with what we know from him with MALMSTEEN,7 THE HARD WAY,RING OF FIRE or THE CODEX!SYZYGY's music is very progressive and the technical wizardry from the guys makes to have a very complete and complex musical message-so Boals must find a very clever and complicated way to push his vocals into the whole ensemble!And he did it with class and style!The compositions get another dimension on stage-that's true-and I really admire and respect the great musical alchemy between all the guys in the band-very solid and strong cohesion -musically speaking! The quality of the footage is impressive-crystal clear and wonderful image-each musician is well filmed and we can see how difficult and complex is to perform such high caliber prog rock music!!We have many songs from the previous 3 albums of the band and 2 fabulous cover tracks-IN THE DEAD OF NIGHT of UK is blastering and DEEP PURPLE'S BURN is astonishig! This album is definitelly a must have for SYZYGY fans especially-but not only-a great addition in the collection of each good prog rock music-a testimony of how good prog rock music should be performed and composed-and I really appreciate the devotion and passion of the guys-they managed to have a solid reputation in the prog rock community-without any label behind!That's impressive indeed!Overall,this album is a true jewel and the definitive prove thet SYZYGY is a band with a strong identity and personaliyty and they still have many years ahead to offer to their fans good music!5 STARS FOR SOMETHING ESSENTIAL-NO DOUBT ABOUT THAT!
