4 stars A monstrously solid and brooding showcase of dark metal, stuffed with technical excellence and exciting compositions-- "In Search of Truth" is THE Evergrey album!

Building on the foundations of their previous two releases, "In Search" pulls out all the stops and delivers. As song-writers and lyricists go, the band has improved greatly-- which is where this album really shines; all the standard metal tools were already there, now they've been given something interesting to do. Guitar phrases are mixed with savage lead playing and smart riffing, leaving room for the various melodies to shine. Of course, it's impossible not to acknowledge Englund's stellar vocals, which in my opinion are some of the best in the genre today-- his passionate delivery makes the album. It would have been nice, however, to see a little more variety in the rhythm section, which seems to keep its head down sticking to textures and comparatively simplistic technique; fortunately, the lack of pizzazz is made up for in the overall effect.

A must-buy for those interested in progressive-metal, which will probably make you look over you shoulder more than a few times while listening.
