5 stars Solid, solid, solid. Darkwater have released an incredible debut. The instrumental talent is superb as most prog metal bands are. Though I smell no cheese, this is serious music instrumentally and more so lyrically. Though not quite as technical as say Dream Theater, they rely heavier on great melodies and such. I love the vocalist too. I know for some the guitar chugging can be repetitive, but honestly with all my like to extreme metal and such, this is some of the best guitar chugging I've ever heard. I love whatever sound the guitarist is using, it just rocks. Sure there are great little instrumental breaks (The song Again has such a sweet one that I think Mr. Petrucci would be pleased) For the sub-genre of prog metal this is one the best albums in the genre period. The sound is unique, unlike most of the prog metal bands I've heard (but love prog metal anyway). This is a masterpiece. Tallest Tree has one of the most powerful lyrics I've heard. And Shattered, wow that song rocks. The rest of the album is solid too!

Five out of Five.
