James LaBrie is at his shining best here. A must have for any fan of Dream Theater or progressive music. James shows a return to form here with high, powerful range. Strong, aggressive songs penned by Matt Guillory from Dali’s Dilemma mix fantastically throughout the disc with beautiful melodies from the Shadow Gallery fellows. A few interesting tunes come by way of Trent Gardner from Magellan: “Beelzebubba” (an ode to Bill Clinton), And “What A Man Thinks” – A big, booming, over the top song that blends accapella harmonies, blaring horns, and blatant influences from Queen into a fun, energetic romp. I love this disc every time I listen to it. It’s like one of those films where catch a new detail every time you watch it. Standout song for me is “Lace”. Make sure to add this and the new Dream Theater album “Scenes From A Memory” to your collection now!
