4.0 out of 5 stars Its slightly quirky and groovy, ...and I like it!,, 7 Mar. 2014
By 
This review is from: Disconnected (Audio CD)
9th studio album from the progressive metal masters and certainly a minor return to form, (both bettering A pleasant shade of gray and Inside out albums in my opinion.) Far removed from normal service, this edgy and proggy affair has since it's release been known as the odd cannon in Fates Warning's discography; but it's much more than just that. FW always pour their mind and soul into their music and wear their heart on their sleeve when it comes to their music. On this one, there is quite alot of variation considering it only has 7 songs; 7 excelent songs in any case.

The intro sidekick opens the door for the slightly upbeat numbers "One and Pieces of me" which transpires into a more moody affair as we enter "So" (the definitive album highlight) and beyond. The following half of the album is probably a little more closer to the stuff they had become known for (especially compared to the previous album) but the songs all possess a freshness of the air about them:- unpredictable, dynamic, lots of subtle influances etc; and yes this is a much more progressive album than most of their previous outings, and I just think it was a superb move. 16 minutes of "still remains" says that much and a true epic!.

This was the start of an upward trend for Fates Warning that has so far culminated in last years blinder "Darkness in a different light" absolutely recommended progressive CD, and essential if you're really into the band.
