4 stars Good metal album... Interesting... but be sure you can take a wall of guitars and cymbals for about 65 minutes...

Now, so many years after the whole controversy around this realase, I found myself very please with this album, though I was one of the brokenheart fans who believe they just forget about making original music... of course, this album take a lot to get into... maybe because is to darn heavy and loud... maybe is average for a regular metal fan, but for a Prog fan, this was too much... I end up rocking around with Honor Thy Father and This Dying Soul... and I'm really glad they made this album... this is kind of their probe that they can be technical, and be the masters at it, for sure...

There are many reviews, so I will say a few things... I'm not agree with the people who said "Stream of Conscouisness" is the song that save the album... is quite boring for me, and "In the Name of God" is one of those songs that I try to skip always... I don't like it... but at the end, the album is good on itself... show one metal band who can play the instrumental part of "Endless Sacrifice"... is just amazing and rocking.. maybe not their best album but great for having fun and headbanging... If Iron Maiden and Metallica are so loved in this website... sure this album is over their standards... so... this is for metalheads... and for progmetal fans... is quite great...
