2 stars Amazing...

If this was your only listen to Threshold, you'd wonder what the hell they were doing on a Progressive Rock site!

A simple collection of acoustic songs, rather uninspired and insipid, showcasing a heavy metal-lite band that has yet to get out of the late 1970s NWoBHM - albeit with a modern production.

The first song, Fragmentation, is one of the most bland songs I've ever heard.

The second, Consume to Live, has a sumptuous, rolling bass line - tell me that's an acoustic bass and I'll laugh. Listening for something interesting and progressive... still listening as the song ends. It's an OK song - hang on, aren't those synth strings? I thought this was Wireless - Acoustic Sessions, but now I'm looking up the Trades Descriptions act.

It changes to a new idea around 3 minutes - I'm surprised this part doesn't have a different name, as it's unrelated (except, perhaps lyrically) to the earlier music. Still standard rock territory, however.

Seventh Angel starts like something off Barclay James Harvest's Gone To Earth, The Sheltering Sky is deeply reminiscent of Pink Floyd's Breathe, Part of the Chaos is a bit more original - but this whole album pans out as a non-innovative collection of nice rock songs.

It's not poor - but it wouldn't grace anyone's collection but a fan of this group.

3 stars Conceal the Metal face

This is a very nice and enjoyable disc of acoustic re-arrangements of songs from throughout Threshold's long career. The sound here is dominated by acoustic guitars, vocals, and grand piano. But there is also bass and drums in the mix. There is absolutely no Metal here, of course, but it is not just a set full of ballads. Songs like Part Of The Chaos and Narcissus have retained their progressive and parts and cool instrumental breaks.

While this is primarily for fans, I cannot give this less than three stars. It might perhaps even appeal to some people who normally don't like this band!

Good release by a good band

4 stars Basically, for almost every metalhead, even for those more inclined towards the progressive genre, an acoustic album is bad news. Yet, for this particular album, jumping into conclusions is not the best way to go. I'll try to tell you why. The album contains acoustic remixes of 8 songs previous ... (read more)

4 stars Great unplugged material from a great progressive band! Highlight is a new song "Conceal the Face" (previously unreleased) and also couple of songs from Damian Wilson-era deserved to be mentioned like: "Part of the Chaos" and "Consume to Live". Andrew McDermott approved himself to be a truly g ... (read more)

5 stars This is one of the best Acoustic Albums I ever heard. Mac with one of his best performances. He performed older songs. This was a great idea from a great band. You can say all Threshold Albums are fantastic. But this, for me is the best. This Album Tops it all. And I don't like Acoustioc Versi ... (read more)
