3 stars Tangled in Dream is the second release from the Australian progressive metal band Vanishing Point. Vanishing Point are a band that I discovered as a result of Prog Archives and because the streaming tracks fit within my tastes I purchased both Tangled in Dream and Embrace the Silence at the same time. Vanishing Point play traditional progressive metal following in the footsteps of Dream Theater. As previously mentioned in another review, they specialize in catchy tunes and melodic vocals and are most comparable to bands such as Poverty's No Crime, Vanden Plas, and Sieges Even. The highlight songs for me are the songs Never Walk Away, the balladic Dancing With The Devil, and Father (7 Years). Also nice, is the hidden track, which is a cover of the Pink Floyd song On the Turning Away. All and all this album is an enjoyable listen with nothing that I find objectionable. The vocals are kept clean and melodic which I like coming from a metal band and I much prefer over the death growls or ear piercing screaming that you get from some bands. The CD also includes an 8 minute video clip titled Tangled In Europe which features video and photographic coverage of the band while in Europe featuring the track Never Walk Away.

Overall, I think that this is a good album that would fit nicely in any progressive metal fan's collection, but it isn't an essential addition. Therefore, I give this release 3 stars on my interpretation of the ProgArchives rating scale.
