3 stars Muddy and unbalanced production values flaws this album for me, but it got clear hints of what to come later in the band's career. Still miles away from Fates Warning's "Perfect Symmetry" and WatchTower's second album although the strongest songs here are definitely memorable. Vocalist Charlie Dominici is an acquired taste but if you can stomach his high-pitched style you'll be in for a little treat. Excellent musicianship all the way through though Kevin Moore's somewhat dated synths tend to get in the way sometimes, but that only adds to the charm of these old progmetal records, right? Not essential but definitely worthy for any DT fan, I suggest starting out with "Images & Words" or "Awake" before this one however.
Bj-1 | 3/5 |
