4.0 out of 5 stars A rare thing for me, 16 May 2008
This review is from: Dead Reckoning [Limited Edition] (Audio CD)
For some reason, whenever I listen to an album for the first time, I can tell whether I will like it in future, even if on first listen it doesn't appeal. However, with this album, it was a total surprise. When I first listened to it, I loved the first track, but then the tracks seemed to lose focus and a couple of them seemed to be off-key. My distaste for the album was confirmed when I only gave it a rating of 2 on Amazon.

However, I persevered with it and gradually, the tracks grew on me to the extent that I wanted to listen to it more. Now I have upped my rating to 4 and I wouldn't be surpised if on further listens, I push it up again.

As usual for Threshold, the music is excellent and the vocals are good (I think I'm one of the few who preferred the original line up with Damian Wilson on vocals) and the stand-out tracks being "Slipstream", "Pilot in the Sky of Dreams" and "Fighting for Breath".

If you are the type of person who will persevere with a CD then I would heartily recommend that you give this one a spin. You, like me, might be surprised at how much you start to enjoy it.
