3 stars 3,5 stars !!! After two exceptional albums "International Daylight" 2003 and "Actors in a Play" 2006 ( to this last I give 5 stars in my review #1010372 Posted Saturday, August 3, 2013) in which I've said "in comparison with "MMX" the "distance" grow in considerable way, because I don't find in "MMX" the same quality in arrangements and variations that I find in the two others" I want to stand out that I still think the same thing . However... after a more careful audition I must say which isn't a disdain, in fact MMX is much more simple album with a more "direct" sound, the arrangements are much more close of Heavy-prog. Listening in sequence "International Daylight", "Actors in a Play" and "MMX", I verify in this last the absence of the "filigrees" which you can find in two previous albums. But , "MMX" also have some attractives as for instance track2 "In my Humble Opinion" a great ballad , track 3 "Glory of Night" and his "addict" heavy part with drums broken beats (starting 3 min 54 seg), track 5 "Travels" ( one of best moments in whole album ) . Another great moment is track 4."Outside The Gloom" and the middle theme which reminds me GENESIS " A Trick of The Tail". In sume , if is not an album at the same level of their previous albums, also isn't a "disaster"! My rate is 3 stars !
