5 stars This is probably the best progmetal album of the year. A perfect job! Excellent songwriting, exciting orchestration, deeply emotional singing, intelligent and interesting lyrics. The vocalist Mac gets better and better with every new album. This pruduct of the highest class is a unique mixture of cool songs carrying very slight and not overdosed experimental spirit (Ground Control, Stop Dead, Pressure, Static and the bonus track What about Me) and great metal hymns with catchy and highly emotional melodies (Mission Profile, Opium, The Art of Reason, Flags and Footprints, The Destruction of Words). This is one of those and very few albums - very easy listening and not boring at the same time. It is the icing of the cake and the culmination of the direction, chosen by Threshold with Hypothetical. I do not agree that they are repeating themselves. Improving of a style is not repeating. lSubsurface grows better and better with every spin in my CD player. Pure class! A REAL MASTERPIECE! It proved once again what I already knew: Threshold are destined to create magnificent music and they can do no worse than that!
