3 stars I am a huge fan of Symphony X but this does not mean that I should be oblivious to the flaws in their career. One of these flaws is called 'Twilight in Olympus'. It seems that Jason Rullo's leave, quite confused the band which delivered a just good with a lot mediocre moments album. The key element that annoys me here is the power metal.Their most power metal album which means too happy riffs and generally a more childish attitude. There are very good songs like Church of the machine,smoke and mirrors and through the looking glass but they are not adequate to elevate this album in the level of gigantic releases such as V,The Odyssey and Paradise Lost. Fortunately, after Rullo came back their works showed only ascent. Concluding, if you are a fan of power metal you will love this album but if you prefer their progressive side, it is not urgent to hear this album. It is not essential,just good.
