4 stars The only thing that takes this album below a 4 star rating is the vocals. Personally, I don't mind the Geddy Lee impersonation, but for anyone who has heard every other DT album, this will just not do. But people, this is their first album, and trust that the instrumental portions were painstakingly developed and practiced to perfection before recording.

But questionable vocals aside, there are some very strong tracks here, including one of my favorite DT instrumentals- Ytse Jam. Killing Hand is also a pretty awesome track, (although admittedly, a much stronger effort when Labrie busts this out in concerts).

For a real DT fan, this album should be a must own.
