4 stars This album oozes quality. I was very happy to hear that Mike Portnoy was heading back to Progressive Metal, because that is a favorite genre of mine and everything he touches is gold. You can absolutely hear how talented these guys are with the first track, and they sound like they are having fun. A supergroup of top notch musicians is always welcome, and this first album is so close to the best Portnoy era Dream Theater albums. I love those Portnoy era Dream Theater albums, and welcome more from the man with incredible progressive rock instincts. The biggest surprise for me was the vocals. Jeff Scott Soto really impressed me with how well the tone of his voice fits the music. Psychotic Symphony is a great start for this band, and I expect big things in the future. Mike Portnoy is arguably the best drummer that adds a unique, lively sound to this genre. I think the greatest compliment to an album is how much I actually listen to it, and this has been in my heavy rotation for a while. It is an excellent addition to any Progressive Metal collection. 4.5/5
