I'll try not to make this review too long as i would hate to bore you. And boring is one thing this cd is not! Trying to describe a band with such a technical sound, without mentionnig the established name of dream theater, is usually impossible. However, not in this instance. The singer deserves considerable praise for his stunning performance, with notes both high and listenable. No thin high range here. Present is also the ubiquitous guitar hero. And the rhythm section is also worthy of note for complex yet catchy arrangements. A trick not often convincingly performed. Rather than another dream theater all hail queensryche's successors to the progressive metal, with songs, crown.
