Review by UMUR
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars Dialog is the debut full-length studio album by Finnish progressive/ power metal act Status Minor. The album was released in September 2009 by Lion Music. Status Minor was formed in 2003 and released a demo in 2006 and one in 2007 before signing to Lion Music.

Status Minor play a progressive kind of power metal on Dialog with clear references to a band like Symphony X but also Dream Theater comes to mind a couple of times.The music is rather diverse and both employ "pop" metal elements as well as some really heavy elements too. The closing 15:44 minute long title-track is the most progressive offering on the album but there are progressive elements like tempo- and time signature changes, unison guitar and keyboard soloing and a generally challenging approach to writing music in most songs on the album.

The production is polished, clean and professional.

Dialog is not the kind of album that knocks my socks off but itīs a very well written, well played and well produced progressive/ power metal album that is sure to please fans of the genre. Donīt expect anything too original though. A 3 star rating is warranted.
