3 stars The recent five star review of "Infinity of Worlds" inspired me to give it another spin. I remember that it did not sound particularly inspiring when I bought it back in 2010 and has been gathering dust on the shelf ever since. But I was willing to give it another chance. I usually order 6 CDs at a time so sometimes a disk may not get the appreciation it deserves.

Definition of Masterpiece: a creation that has been given much critical praise, especially one that is considered the greatest work of a person's career or to a work of outstanding creativity, skill, or workmanship.

The musicanship is good but some of the compositions meander rather aimlessly with a mixture of styles sometimes wandering into the realms of jazz. Track 3 in particular shows this tendancy and sounds like elevator music in places.

Track 4 "Stony Days" is about the best, its heavier than the others but still nothing exceptional.

The final track, the title track, is also quite good but the best piece of music on the entire disk is at the end when it morphs into industrial noise. At least this sounds interesting, just a shame there wasn't more of this throughout the album.

Overall despite some fine musicanship this is really rather uninspiring, offers northing new that hasn't already been done to death by the likes of Derek Sherinian. It's no masterpiece, nor is it an essential part of a prog collection. Its only saved from a two star rating by Track 4.

FXM | 3/5 |
