Review by kev rowland
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Crossover Team
4 stars This is a fan-club only release of the Paris concert last year, and precedes the new studio album 'Critical Mass' which is currently going through final mix and should be available at the end of the summer. Threshold have long been the UK's premier prog metal outfit, and this collection shows why as while their debut 'Wounded Land' is viewed by many as a classic release, only one song from that album (the truly awesome "Paradox") is on this release. The rhythm section of Johanne James and Jon Jeary tie it all down which allows the twin guitars of Nick Midson and Karl Groom to lock horns with keyboardist Richard West, while rising above it all is vocalist Mac.

This is metal with some prog roots, not the other way around. The keyboards play an important role, but this is a metal band that uses melody like a battering ram. The album starts life almost slowly, with the heavy riffing "Freaks", with Mac taking a small role in a lower vocal register. Soon the band start to open up, with the vocals much more centre stage, and the keyboard solo attempting to power through the twin riffs, but the music is much more than just power chords. There is lightness and shade, majesty and grandeur, but at the base of it all there is a rock band that wants to cure your dandruff and get inside your skull.

This superb CD is available from the web-site at www.thresh.net, and comes with a multimedia section that contains a screensaver, tour diary etc that is quite interesting. If you have yet to discover the joys of Threshold but like your metal melodic and loud then now is the time.

3 stars Turn on tune in

Concert In Paris is, just as the title indicates, a live album recorded in Paris. To be more exact it was recorded during the tour in support of Hypothetical, the second studio release featuring Mac on lead vocals. Precisely half of the track list (four out of eight songs) is occupied by material from that most recent album at the time of this recording. A further two songs were taken from the previous Clone, the first (and in my opinion best) of the Mac-era albums.

My all-time favourite Threshold album Extinct Instinct is sadly overlooked entirely for this live set, but Psychedelicatessen and Wounded Land are represented by one song each. The older songs are the better ones and Mac does a fine job of recreating the vocals on material originally sung by Damian Wilson and Glynn Morgan. Paradox is always an excellent number and the highlight here for me.

All in all, this album runs for over 50 minutes and is a welcome addition to a comprehensive Threshold collection. However, the subsequent double CD and live DVD Critical Energy--recorded on the tour in support of the band's next album, Critical Mass--is the ultimate Threshold live release till this day.

4 stars The successful Hypothetical tour followed the release of the album who redefined style and brought a lot of new fans. Being finally confident with the line up, the tour went really well and a live album is the right way to celebrate it, thus being not an official release but rather a fan club ... (read more)
