5 stars Call it useless soloing, overextended riffing, or just plain wanking if you want, but I love every second of it. Take 4 of the best musicians in the world and stick them together in a band and you get the most amazing sounding album you could imagine.

The best way to describe this album would be to say that it is the musical equivilent to driving in a really flashy, brand new sports car convertable with the top down. Its a thrill ride for your ears.

If your not a fan of metal, I would still recommend this album. Anyone who listens to this album suddenly plays Air Guitar, Air Drums, Air Keyboards, and Air Bass all at the same time. You would never imagine such a flashing of fingers and hands! Most of the songs are quite catchy, and all of them are excellent.

Every song on this debut album is wonderful, but I have to say that Universal Mind is the best instrumental song ever written. There is alot of energy and intensity behind the songs, with the exception of 7. State of Grace, which is a beautifully composed soft song.

This is the one of the best albums in the entire Prog Metal Genre. I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys a nice thril ride every once in a while.
