2012 was an important year for progressive rock, with the release of a considerable amount of masterpieces, and in the midst of it a sextet British melodic progressive metal / neo-prog with a long (and underappreciated) career launched another album breathtaking as only they can do.

Between 2007 and the last year many things happened in Threshold, and the most striking of these was the departure and death of Mac. A terrible loss for the members and for the fans, but fortunately we have the band went ahead and recruited Damian Wilson, lead singer of his debut Wounded Land and Extinct Instinct, and needless to say that while my first listen did not impress me much, subsequent fazeram I love March of Progress as the masterpieces of the past decade and proves that the band is only to continue in his excellent level of musicality that has made ​​throughout his career.

Damian Wilson seems to be better than never, it seems that fifteen years have passed since the last time he was at the Threshold (and as good as the debut of the band and their top performance in extinction Instinct). Well, on the other members in there muiot what to say except that I have ripped the compliments on my previous reviews. Although I liked the fact that Richard West have "expanded" somewhat their keyboards to use a "church organ" in the closing track The Rubycon.

There is virtually no low point here. The highlights are the great Return of Thought Police (whose lyrics combine perfectly for me before the series of protests that have occurred in large cities here in Brazil), Staring at the Sun, great Colophon, the ballad That's Why We Came (more once Threshold showing that it does not fail in his ballads), Coda and mini-epic The Rubycon.

5 stars, no doubt.
