3 stars Without Warning's first two CDs were released only in Japan initially, but from this one here there has been a re-release in 2003 with 2 bonus tracks as shown here. My review is referring to the original release without bonus. Without Warning was a ProgMetal-outfit led by Ted Burger (guitar) and Jack Bielata (vocals). Bielata's voice might need a few listens to get used to it, as well their music is not quite catchy and rather intricate, thus not everyone's favorite right from the beginning. But I just can say that it's really worthwhile to give it a few spins, since their songs are revealing great keyboards and guitars along with a powerful rhythm section. References one could give are Fates Warning or Queensryche, although they don't sound like any of these bands. Best songs are What, In My Name, Far From Eden, Envisioned and Believe , but actually there is not any really weak one.

Highly recommended for fans of Dream Theater, Vanden Plas, Fates Warning, and Poverty's No Crime!

3 stars 3.5 really

This almost unknown band has 3 albums in their pocket and i might say quite good and well done. Belive is their second album and the improvement over the first is seen all over the album, production is much better, the ideas is much choesive and intristing that resoults a strong prog metal album by Without Warning. From the begging i observe the voice of Jack Bielata, is an intristing one to aquire, but is a good and has all the range that a voice must have in prog metal. Anyway the bands sounds sometimes like Dream Theater Awake era and Fates Warning with nice moods and time signatures, not a copy after all. Musicaly speaking these guys know to use the instruments and creat something valueble for today and for tomorrow as are for example the first 3 pieces Deepest Dreams, What and In My Name the best from here and among the best i ever heared from a prog metal band. Also the music on this album is quite catchy and rather intricate and might get some time to used to it. All in all a good album that desearves much more attention by prog metal listners, well is not something groundbreaking but has it moments and some of them are excellent. Worth to listen at least once, i think is their best album.
