"FWX" is as the title gives away the 10th studio album from one the oldest remaining American progressive metal bands: Fates Warning. After all their first album was released 20 Years ago, and a lot of water has passed under the bridge since, and Fates Warning has evolved a lot over the last 2 decades. Not much in common any longer with their early stuff, they prove once more on "FWX", that they are not affraid to take chances.

The album starts, where "Disconnected" left off with 10 solid songs, all excellent played like we are used to from them, a very strong production, Ray Alder's awesome voice, and a overall convincing product once more ... No complaints from me, if you are a fan, then I am sure you'll be pleased with this new effort from Fates Warning.

Recommended tracks: "Left Here", "Simple Human" and "Wish"
