5 stars This album is what I like to call a forgotten masterpiece of prog metal!Well,not quite prog metal in the pure sense of the term,but definitelly a solid rock album with some prog touch and some genius compositions,trully brilliant and catchy from the first to the last note!IN THE NAME is a Canadian band born from the ashes of a band called MADRIGAL and with this unique album they let to the good music lovers a brilliant album,trully original and played with burning passion!If I try to fing some similar touches with other bands,the only name that comes in my mind are the fantastic PSYCHOTIC WALTZ!Even the way how the IN THE NAME vocalist is singing and the great variery of the impressive guitar work-all this elements are comparable with the ones of the great PSYCHOTIC WALTZ!Fabien Madeleine-the IN THE NAME vocalist has a dramatic tone and a wide range of vocal expressions-from very sensitive and calm ones to some unbelieveble rage and frustration vocal tones in his brilliant voice! Impossible not to be captured , fascinated ,mesmerized by the imense talent of this band and the fantastic variety of guitar expressions-all the compositions are so diverse and well written- that makes of this album an unforgetable moment of audition!It 's realy sad that IN THE NAME disbanded only after one album,I don't know why,but surely with such complex and intelligent music they didn't get a wider audience and I am sure that the sales didn't hit the sky either! From my point of view,this album is simply wonderful,exceptional from the point of view of the quality of the compositions ,catchy,intense and interesting from the first to the last track- without any weak composition!I gave it 5 stars ,because it's an album of a rare quality and definitelly it has something magical in it's musical core !
