3 stars Okay, I'm going to do this review with each song: 6:00- Is as proggressive DT can get; it's pretty good Labrie's voice makes me cringe, but with DT I do my best to ignore his somewhat out of place vocals at some points. Caught In A Web-Still sticking to that general proggy feel...unique song with random lyrics. My intermission----- Sounds musically perfect, but other than that it's pretty freaking boring. Innocence Faded---Boring...kind of a little balad thing going... a lot slower worthless lyrics. Erotomania---Sluggish instrumental though I know you DT's musically perfect and sounds good, but DT fans should really check out other prog bands (as a suggestion). Voices---Pretty good---goes into random directions and labrie's voice irritates the hell out of me on this one.. THe silent man----they tried to make a hit DIDNT WORK. The Mirror---now they to sound like Metallica----just skip the song and listen to master of puppets...and labrie's voice sucks for metal. Lie---It's like Prog-Pop-Metal----tried to make a heavy hit DIDNT WoRk Throughout this album you can tell that DT tried to make another breakthrough song like Pull Me Under but, it didn't work =( Lifting Shadows...-Yawn Scarred--omg labries voice is killing me you have to take a sip of that li*our to enjoy this one. Space Dye Vest--Ended the album sucking left me like wtf? All in all its good to all you DT fans generally, but to those who havent heard DT you might like it....musically perfect=-=lyrically crap----worthless material.
