5 stars All expectations exceeded...

I was somewhat surprised when I realised that Charlie Dominici decided to make music again and hearing/seeing his improvement singing with her former band in WDADRU in comparision with his performance in DT's debut album raised my expectations a little bit more. After all those years of inactivity I was hoping to hear something "interesting" if not necessarily remarkable. Well, without making much noise, like out of nowhere comes one of the best prog-metal albums of the last years, and...... well, one of the best prog-metal works of all time imo.

03 A Trilogy Part 2 is a concept album and it shows, not only lyrically but musically speaking. I won't tell about the concept itself wich is well constructed and interesting enough, the important thing is that the album as a whole is very coherent and consistent, with well integrated reprises of several themes along the songs, good flowing beetween tracks (often with a little story-telling) and an overall feeling of unity while having enough diversity to keep things interesting.

Heavy riffs, catchy melodies, rhytm changes, great musicianship and well written songs plus a heavily upgraded version of Dream Theater's former vocalist. The result is a prog-metal masterpiece that only gets better with each listen.

Strongly recommended for prog-metal, heavy metal and hard rock fans, but really for every prog-rock lover who enjoys some heavyness from time to time...... and obviously, DT fans.
