2 stars Let me first start by saying, i'm not a fan of prog-metal as a rule. Never have been, and I don't think that I ever will. However, this album is considered one of the seminal albums of the genre, so I thought that i'd give it a listen. The only tracks on this album that stand out to me as being interesting are "Ticks and Leeches", because from a drummer's point of view this, along with most of the album, is very nice technical stuff. The track I would rate most musically is "Parabola", which is certainly the high point of the album with it's Floydian electric guitars and once again, well maneuvered drumming. A decent listen for prog metal fans, but really not my cup of tea. 2 stars.
