4 stars Now here we have the latest studio album from American progressive metal act, Shadow Gallery. This is one of my favorites in the prog metal genre, right up there with Dream Theater's finest. However, this album focuses more on the emotional side of music for the most part and includes more symphonic elements. It's one rockin' album to get your blood pumping, but it's also got a lot of mellow moments. Basically almost anything I could ask for in an album.

Now the music isn't extremely complex so it's pretty easy to get into. However, it has it's fair share of progressive moments. The album moves from intense instrumental passages to beautiful piano ballads. There's all the catchy hooks anyone could ask for and enough heart wrenching guitar solos to make a guitarist's mouth water. It is also a continuing story that started with their album, Tyranny. Overall, it's one of the best prog metal releases in recent years.

Fight Club | 4/5 |
