Unless you really, really likes Symphony X and to a degree Adagio and Space
Odyssey there's really no point in even considering picking this album up,
delivers on their debut full length has massive parallels with those bands.
Highly unoriginal, but you don't just write songs that have the quality to
compete with the above mentioned bands without being very talented and the album
shows some very skilful musicians that handles their instruments to perfection
and a very good vocalist, who has the range to sing the complex songs.
You really can't put a
finger on the execution and the production, but originality is nowhere to be
Now they need to grow a pair and write more original material, show that they
are capable of getting out of the deep, deep shadows of Symphony X and become a
band that can stand on their own. And the title couldn't be more appropriate:
they need a new identity, one of their OWN. But if you need an album to bridge
time until the next Symphony X album is released, then I suggest you give this
one a listen...
