2 stars So,that's my first experience of DGM and the first thing to say is that this one is excellent power metal but has nothing to do with prog...I don't know if the rest of their albums have progressive leanings but this one is power metal to the bone with the main influences coming from KAMELOT,STRATOVARIUS,maybe the more metal side of RHAPSODY OF FIRE and the more speed side of SYMPHONY X...Vocalist Titta Tani has a powerful voice,something like a less brutal version of Russell Allen or Ronnie Atkins of PRETTY MAIDS...Of course all songs are well arranged and performed with nice guitar and keyboard solos but that doesn't make an album progressive...and after a few listens it gets quite boring...If you like power metal or want to have a break from complex and difficult albums then this is for you...melodic speed metal...I have been personally through this phase many years ago and such albums do not thrill me at all...I will just pass this one by...2.5 stars...

3 stars Fifth studio album of this prog metal band from Italy, now more a power metal outfit with some prog leanings here and there, named Misplaced from 2004. To tell the truth this album was a little deseppointing for me, I mean this release sounds like usual power metal with some keybords added that doesn't make a prog metal album IMO. They fall now in a category and took a path followed by hunderd bands. The only DGM album with Tita Tani behind the microphone who I consedered essential is the first one where he appears from 2001Dream land, the rest are usual stuff with very little to offer, even the musicianship is quite good, they suffer in ideas. This album is same, the ideas are almost down to zero, but what make this album listenable is the good musicianship all over the album. All instruments sound good, each musician envolved here make a good job, but I think that DGm can't do much better then this kind of music. Is the best they can give and that's all, no one to blame, they will never be another Symphony X even they try on some pieces to sound alike. Now here DGM sounds like Stratovarius or Kamelot, more power metal then prog, not a bad thing after all, but as I said the ideas are mediocre. Not a piece stand in front, all are almost the same in value, but almost forgetable aswell. I will give 3 stars because I like the band, more like 2.5 rounded to 3, but only this time I'm so generous. No wonder why the album is so low rated.
