5 stars With this album Fates Warning finally found their own grial: the perfect communion between their classic influences (Iron Maiden, Rush, Queensr˙che, Marillion, etc.) and their own sound, leaded by the spectacular guitar duo Jim Matheos-Frank Aresti, the clean, beauty and powerful Ray Alder's voice, and the original drum playing by Mark Zonder. Matheos wrote these songs trying to be less complicated than the previous and also excellent Perfect Symmetry. The songs are played in a classic "in crescendo" mode from the first notes to the chorus, the more catchy in all Fates Warning career. The Eleventh Hour, one of the best prog metal songs ever written, it's Parallels hight point, but the rest are all absolutely magnificient. In Paralles Fates Warning shows perfectly how a band can mix their brilliant technical skills with a well structured songs, like Queensr˙che in Operation Mindcrime and Empire.
