5 stars Having followed THRESHOLD's career for quite a time now, it's always with some curiosity I start listening whenever they have a new album in the stores. "Light And Space" is a very good opener: heavy and complex with some rhythm changes. The rest of the album has a lot of variation with good musicianship and strong compositions. Andrew "Mac" McDermott has a very good voice (although I did prefer Damian Wilson who has more originality) and he weaves a lot of melody into THRESHOLD's wall of tight guitar riffs. THRESHOLD differs from many other Prog Metal bands, because they have never sounded like DREAM THEATER, which is quite unusual in this genre. The epic closer "Narcissus" is my favourite song on this album together with "Light And Space" and "Sheltering Sky". THRESHOLD is one of the leading bands in the Prog Metal genre today. Although everything is quite the same and it takes some listening before you get into this album, I have to say that this is one of their best ever, together with their debut "Wounded Land" (1993) and "Clone" (1998). A true masterpiece!
