4 stars At first I thought this was going to be another youthful attempt to over-Dream Theater the Dream Theater (band members hail from the same Berklee musical school). But no. This is far more crazier, with the band hopping in a blink of an eye from death metal blast-beats, set to a symphonic background, no less, to Queen-like harmonized lush hard rock and some sort of a deranged Broadway musical theater and everything in between. This approach perhaps befits the concept of the album, which is about a boy who is not only an invalid, but evidently deranged as well. There is order underneath the chaos, however, with the transitions (except the death metal parts) done much better than Between the Buried and Me (another lets-cram-our-songs US metal band), for example. All in all, you could say that this young band approaches Haken in talent, but they still need to learn that less is worth more sometimes.
