3 stars Brazilian prog metal band with a strange and funny name Bad Salad was known to me since 2 or 3 years ago when they were and still are very popular on youtube making Dream Theater cover versions. I must admit they are pretty good at that some covers are more then killer sounding very good and above all the musicianship is awesome like on Metropolis from Images and words. The year 2012 is the year when they release , finaly their own material named Uncivilized available at cdbaby among others. I was very curious to hear this one, because I know that they are very capable musicians, each member is very skilfull for sure, I must admiting that some passages are beyond excellent, I'm impressed how such young band can deliver so solid prog metal, technical, complex. So, on this release we have progressive metal well performed, well produced, musicaianship is killer only the originality lacks big time, sounding ike a DT clone from Brazil. Well I'm not bother about that here, because some pieces are excellent like Mourning, well balanced guitars and keyboards, nice vocal delivery and stunning druming another great one is the opening track the shortest one, because the rest are all over 10 min. Technical prog metal with nice changes in tempo, nice breaks and all ingredients for a good album. I like it and fans of the genre can easy take some spins worth it. In places sounding better then DT who lost their ideas since Octavarium. 3.5 stars
