1 stars I really dont see what the interest is in this album,Savatage at the time of Gutter Ballet didn't know what they should be,be it heavy metal of progressive rock,they obviously did'nt like the style of music they had been producing up to Power Of The Night.Otherwise they would have improved on this heavy style so instead they came to this,Gutter Ballet which seems interesting on the surface,but it lacks power,real power,its' lame. There's no doubt that Savatage have plenty of talent,as can be seen by all their work from Siren's up to Power of the Night,which are power thrash classic's,but Gutter Ballet is weak and dull comparison,its basically boring and has aged dreadfully it sounds old. The production sounds more polished then previous efforts,but thats its major downfull,its almost sounds like any other USA slick metal act,its a new Savatage,great production but less power. If you like well produced so called prog metal,then you may find it of interest,but i would advise anyone to check out savatage's earlier work which is so much more raw interesting and more massively powerful,and seems so much more interesting over the years to listen to than Gutter ballet.
