3 stars Fatal Fusion's The Ancient Tale rather blew me away when I heard it, but unfortunately Dissonant Minds leaves me cold. It's the bluesy vocals and organ which doesn't quite work for me here; Knut Erik Grøntvedt's singing voice just doesn't do much for me, with the result that whilst I find the instrumental sections fairly interesting (though nothing we've not heard before from them or from innumerable other retro/neo-prog acts), the vocal sections don't quite work out for me. It's still the same sort of "vintage Rush plus some neo-prog" mix of influences that The Ancient Tale showcased, and yet somehow it felt fresher there; here it's alright, but not more than alright.
