3 stars With Long Day Good Night, Fates Warning proves to be in good shape!

With a very powerful production where each instrument sounds perfectly (highlighting, of course, the excellent Jarzombek drums), the Americans bring us a collection of good metal and progressive hard rock, but without hesitating to also offer quieter and more ambient passages, which could sometimes also be included in the pop-rock genre.

Unfortunately, Ray Alder is not my type of singer, since in my opinion he screams too much and lacks texture in his voice, and the album suffer from an excessive length and an adbundance of filler tracks.

Nevertheless, Log Day Good Night is an enjoyable album which shows that after all this years, the guys of Fates Warning have much to say!

Best Tracks: The Destination Onward (amazing drums, and great guitar riffs), The Way Home (complex and interesting instrumental development), Under The Sun (maybe not their best song, but for some reason I like it), Scars ( impressive riffs for what is perhaps the roundest song on the album) , Liar (I like this hard rock style a bit more badass) and The Longest Shadow of the Day (great bass solo, superb drumming and OSI-like guitars)

My Rating: ***

The Crow | 3/5 |
