Symphony X's upward spiral continues as their third album, 'The Divine Wings of Tragedy', builds upon every improvement made over their previous two albums, to make this one of their finest and most ambitious releases to date.

The music and sound is pretty much similar to its predecessor, yet, everything just seems more accomplished. The band have really hit their stride in regards to songwriting, especially guitarist Michael Romeo and keyboardist Michael Pinella, who's neoclassical dueling perfectly encapsulates the essence of the band. And vocalist Russell Allen's incredible voice fits the music perfectly, able to shift from melodic to aggressive singing with ease.

After 'The Damnation Game' set the blueprint for a Symphony X album, this is where the New Jersey quintet really started to refine their sound and become the band we all know and love. And with some of their strongest material in songs such as 'Of Sins and Shadows', 'Out of the Ashes', 'The Accolade', 'The Eyes of Medusa' and the 21-minute title track, it's easy to see why this album is held in such high regard by fans.

In my opinion this is a true classic.

I always judge an album by its opener, if its good then I will probably like the rest. This album opens with 'Of Sins and Shadows' which is a bone-crunching masterpiece full of crunching guitar riffs and a mind blowing solo. Michael Romeo's technical ability and speed is too amazing to behold.

The whole album follows on in the same fashion, fantastic technique, the interplay between guitar and keyboard work is breathtaking and sometimes inseparable to the ear. I love the classical influences especially the intro to 'Out of Ashes' and the 'Witching Hour'.

Russell Alan's vocals are heavenly. His range is immense, mind you he needs it to have any chance of matching the other musicians.

If you want your a jaw dropping moment then listen to the twenty minute masterpiece, the title track. It opens with Gregorian style chanting (always a winner for Progressive music. It then moves onto to a guitar tribute to 'The Planets'. Then it kicks off into some amazing guitar work which interplays with the keyboards and all at one hundred miles an hour. Then it slows down to some nice acoustic work........you get the picture. The song never stays the same just when you think you know whats going on they change to song entirely always to good effect.

Progressive Metal at its finest and in my experience Symphony X are untouchable in this genre.

Who do I recommend this album to.....anyone that loves well-made metal music made by fantastic muscians. I think followers of Rush, who like the stuff pre-Signals should give this a go. The riffs are meaty and will appeal to many fans of more mainstream metal, such as, Metallica.

My boyfriend bought this Cd & we listened to the whole album yesterday & i loved every single track it sounded awsome. I would deffinetly buy this album for myself, it's an album i could listen to all day everyday. Some of my favourite tracks were "The eyes of medusa" & "the devine wings of tragedy" which is about 24minutes long but it's deffinetly worth listening to all the way through, the contrast of singing with the guitar solos in it are just music to my ears. Overall it's a really good album & i deffinetly recomend this to any metal fan. It's just a shame that Symphony X aren't more well known because they're a really good talented band.

Generally seen to be the best album to date produced by Symphony X. This is largely due to the awesome musical talents of the individuals - mentioning any names is unfair, but Michael Romeo and Russel Allen shine through. Russel's vocals vary from deep and guttural to screeching Dickinson/Labrie melodies. His range and variety of tone is exceptional. Michael Romeo is undoubtedly one of the unsung heros of modern guitar. His rhythm work on this album owes a great deal to Dimebag Darell of Pantera - double and triple tracked grinding riffs that really get the adrenalin pumping. However, his solos and lead playing are a superb cross between smooth,flowing Malmsteen neo-classical scales/arpegios, and tapped passages reminiscent of Vai. His whammy work is also superb - and perhaps on this album Romeo acheives the best balance and contrast of lead and rhythm I have heard to date. This album only fails in my eyes in occasional excessive use of keyboard solos - a sad and common mistake made by similar bands.
