5 stars Compared to my other reviews I am not going to give an extended opinion about 'Supernova',just give the pros and cons and compare it with their previous work 'delusional reality'. 'Delusional reality' was more aggressive and straight while remaining progressive of course.In my opinion,'Supernova' has evolved their sound making it more complex,progressive with some jazz elements here and there. When I first heard the homonymous song I could not believe my ears. A very proggy mood,atmospheric and mr.Huffman singing with quite diversified vocals according to his past. Some new elementes that I consider positive are: -better bass work(at least the bass is more noticeable) by mr.Malitz -keyboards solo are more often and remind sometimes mr.Rudess I think but without losing their unique style -more atmospheric sound -more complex compositions -supreme guitar work in songs like 'Icons of Evil' and 'The final act' Of course every thing has its negatives which are: -less aggressive(musically) songs which is not so annoying but I think that aggression fits with Mindwarp Chamber music as it was presented in ;delusional reality' -some may say that they copy Dream Theater in some parts even if I quite disagree -those who like straight songs may be disappointed,but we are talking about progressive music,aren't we?

To sum up,maybe the best progressive album this year.Kudos to Mindwarp Chamber for evolving their sound. As a result,if I rated 'delusional reality; with 4 stars,this work cannot be rated with less than 5 stars.
