Review by b_olariu
4 stars I'm glad to be the first reviewer of Vanishing Point, to be seen here, so here i go. My only album with them, i'm looking for the next release to listen in the future. This is a good band from Australia who plays a melodic prog something in Poverty's No Crime style, with catchy tunes, melodic vocals. Maybe is not something you never listen before, but has very enjoyble moments such as, Never walk away, Father 7 years, strong guitars riffs combined with great harmonies. I give 4 stars because they desearve every push from prog metal listners. Similar bands Povert's No Crime, Avalon, and maybe others.

3 stars Tangled in Dream is the second release from the Australian progressive metal band Vanishing Point. Vanishing Point are a band that I discovered as a result of Prog Archives and because the streaming tracks fit within my tastes I purchased both Tangled in Dream and Embrace the Silence at the same time. Vanishing Point play traditional progressive metal following in the footsteps of Dream Theater. As previously mentioned in another review, they specialize in catchy tunes and melodic vocals and are most comparable to bands such as Poverty's No Crime, Vanden Plas, and Sieges Even. The highlight songs for me are the songs Never Walk Away, the balladic Dancing With The Devil, and Father (7 Years). Also nice, is the hidden track, which is a cover of the Pink Floyd song On the Turning Away. All and all this album is an enjoyable listen with nothing that I find objectionable. The vocals are kept clean and melodic which I like coming from a metal band and I much prefer over the death growls or ear piercing screaming that you get from some bands. The CD also includes an 8 minute video clip titled Tangled In Europe which features video and photographic coverage of the band while in Europe featuring the track Never Walk Away.

Overall, I think that this is a good album that would fit nicely in any progressive metal fan's collection, but it isn't an essential addition. Therefore, I give this release 3 stars on my interpretation of the ProgArchives rating scale.

Review by kev rowland
4 stars This is the second album from the Australian progressive metal band, but the first since they signed to Limb Music and consequently the first to be easily available in Europe. Having already kicked up a storm with a dynamic performance at Wacken, the German press in particular have been eagerly awaiting this album, and it is easy to see why.

This six-piece just oozes confidence, and puts hard rock melodies and styles against more progressive and melodic ideas that crafts a sound that will be enjoyed by anyone who thinks that Stratovarius are the high point of this genre. They are not afraid to bring in ideas just for a few bars to make a difference to a song, yet never moving away from their hard rock roots.

Vanishing Point certainly sound more European than any other Aussie outfit I have heard, and are in a class far removed from Skyhooks or Rose Tattoo. Superb
