Review by TRoTZ
PROG REVIEWER
3 stars This is a progressive metal album in the style of Dream Theater and Symphony X, but mainly the first. All the instruments are played very well, more in technic than in feeling. It is precisely in the keyboards that resides the main difference between Dream Theater and Andromeda: Andromeda's are more spacey and less symphonic. The melody is much reduced in aim of technical and virtuous instrumentals. Lawrence Mackrory's voice can be a little acid, alternating between solemness and rage.

The album starts with a psychedelic spacey guitar which then leads to speedy solos and the regular melody attended with power guitar riffs a la Symphony X. The second track, "Crescendo of Thoughts", pushes a little bit harder with more complex and joyful transitions allied to the speedy virtuous play; the melody improves. The third track, "In The Deepest of Waters", starts in a darker way, with heavy guitar riffs, like it was taken from Dream Theater's "Awake"; more spacey keyboards, frenetic guitar solos and in the middle a mellower part. The next track, the instrumental "Chameleon Carneval" starts sounding like Symphony X's "Smokes and Mirrors" from Twilight in Olympus, but then it progresses to a somewhat danceable speedy metal song, with many transitions: very enjoyable, very enjoyable indeed! The same ingredients make the last tracks. The suite "Extension of the Wish" has the best melody of the album, somewhat sad and nostalgic and orchestrated with the long usual inspired, complex and dynamic instrumental parts. The last track, "Arch Angel" ends the album with a good melody as well.

As it could be apprehended from my previous words, not definitely the most original album. But we could call it a convincing praise to their heroes.

4 stars You don't have to listen a lot of it to catch the drift.

Andromeda is not running around the bush in any songs: they're here to show you what they're capable of, and it's a major cliché for some, and an appeal for othres. In this surprising album, everything is 140 mph, except for little segments of 1 to 2 minutes where they calm down. Apart from those well deserved moments, the rest is very ressemblant to what their compatriote Yngwie Malmsteen used to do at best. Malmsteen not being super progressive, Andromeda is on the other hand intensively progressive; many time changes and breaks a la Rush or Dream Theater and cool and original keyboards textures.

This is total speed metal but with more texture and colors than the traditional metal recipe. It's so fast, a symphonic lover couldn't tolerate a full album. There's so much to catch and demands a lot of concentration in many occasions; but sometimes it really lets itself listen easily.

A powerful and dazzling debut album, I wonder if their secret purpose was to show that Dream Theater or Sonata Artica are not that hot in the end!

This is shouting out loud: "Move over man, let us show you how."

4 stars What a great band!I've heard that they went a little bit commercial and spacey in their later albums but this one is a prog metal gem for sure!A technically blessed band that knows when to play aggresive and complex and when to play ''accesible''.Great synthesis ability,powerful compositions!Go and get it!

2 stars Another uninspired example of cheesy Dream Theatre worship.

For quite some years now an almost ridiculous number of bands have been following the Dream Theatre formula of progressive metal/hard rock. We all know this paradigm too well I'm afraid - odd time signatures, shred guitar, synth lines over the top, cheesy vocalist that sounds like he probably should have picked horse-riding as a career instead, bass and drums? Meh take your pick. This album does nothing to differentiate itself from the vast quagmire of unoriginal prog-metal mediocrity and is very much bound by it - and for a genre that is meant to be 'progressive' these are not very desirable qualities.

For Dream Theatre and cheesy prog-metal fans only.

4 stars Andromeda's debut brings us a great addition to the classic prog-metal ranks, an already over-populated and, at desperate times, uninspiring sub-genre. The first chance I had to listen to it was upon discovering the band right here on PA, taking a huge liking for the album's title-track. Even tho ... (read more)
