4 stars This CD is NOT quite as good as "Second Life Syndrome". Why? Well, it has a couple of so-so tracks, so thats the five stars gone! However, "Parasomnia" is excellent and the final track "Ultimate Trip" drags this CD into 4 stars on it's own. This CD does not feature the uber- atmospheric guitars from SLS but it has enough good guitar-licks to make the CD an enjoyable listen. Sprinkling of Piano and Hammond, strewn amongst the metal riffs sort of pick out a direction that maybe should have been more thoroughly played out. Track 1, "Beyond the Eyelids" is a good starter, nice and powerful riffing and pleasing bass line. Good solid prog-metal, but the opening four tracks are all blown away by tracks 5 and 9. These two tracks are worth buying the CD I think.
