5 stars Just given this a spin this weekend, time to review I thought as I took off the headphones. Hm , In the Presence of enemies - a two parter, each part the book=end tracks of this mightily impressive CD! Soup PERB, what can you say about the EPIC, it takes you by the spheroids right from the start and part one just wets the appetite, oart two showcases one of the best chorus riffs EVER and at 25:38 (parts 1 and 2 combined) it's a proper prog epic. Maximum musicianship, time changes it just has the LOT. What about the sandwiched tracks ?? Constant Motion is also top-notch and has one of the best Petrucci solos...another top effort.. Forsaken, the dark eternal night, prophets of war - are all solid efforts and in no way stop this CD being a 5 star jobby. The ministry of lost souls is also brilliant and almost 15 minutes long!! The last track Repentance is the weakest in my opinion, but it's not filler either. All in all a VERY good CD and a MUST for any prog metal addict - just buy it for the satanic opus. FIVE STARS
