With Subsurface Threshold continues to display their winning formula in an album where they are as strong as before. Although not as good as the acclaimed Critical Mass is still a winner in its own right, containing some of the strongest tracks they've done.

I told you how much I admire their ability to make ballads? Probably a thousand times. But I have to say it again: these guys are masters of ballads. I am ecstatic every time I hear one. Maybe it's just a personal issue, but anyway I did not hear any until now that disappoint me.

Sadly lacking support the album. Where the first five songs are stupendous jewels, the other four (with the exception of the ballad "Flags and Footprints") are at a level below. It opens with the promising start and so continue until shortly after the half, but two-thirds are great while the latter is wanting. Perhaps if there had been a different provision of the songs ... At least we are blessed with great works like opening Mission Profile, Ground Control, Stop Dead and the epic The Art of Reason.

4.5 stars, rounded up.
