4 stars 8/10

Well, this band only grow on me, and although this time I have understood that sound poppy integrate your overall sound (see the title track that closes the album), ale'm passages very Toto-esque (the instrumental Abstract Malady comes to mind), I can see that they matured throughout his career, becoming more complex.

That said, there are a lot of great special guests on This GoodPlace: Steve Hackett, Adrian Belew, Paul Gilbert, Neal Morse, Mike Portnoy, Phil Keaggy and Michael Manring. Wow! Not bad, huh? Despite that I really wanted to know the name of the female vocalist that stands as backing vocals on Lullaby of Bedlam and lead vocals on the epic Redemption. Coincidence or not, both songs are the best on the disc. The first is full of weight sustentadapor a strong theme and rather kick it with a stinging guitar and bass. And the second was what The Long Road Home and On The Threshold of Etenrity were not in their málbuns: an epic immaculate. One interesting thing: would Neal Morse and the other members of the Transatlantic allowed them "copiassem" the soil of All of the Above in this song? Because the guitar solo is very similar ...

4 stars.
