  • Dismissing this album as being too commercial is a senseless distortion by those who beleive that all progressive metal has to be densely packed with a million notes, changes and every technique or range that the great musicians in question can come up with. This album is densely packed by some of the most solid, mature songwriting you will find in the progressive metal style. Yes it does have memorable melodies and is not the most technically complex album FW have made, but it also rewards countless listening sessions due to its understatedly complex rhythms and melodies and emotional power.Stunning drum-work by Zonder, as always, a beautiful fat bass tone and great guitar work.Forget about those who mistake its maturity, relative accessability and elegance for commercialism. This is an absolute essential for anybody with a taste for intelligent metal or progressive music generally.
