This is probably the only Fates CD to go commercial. "Point of View" and "We Only Say Goodbye" were rock radio smashes. Excellent CD with great lyrics and pumping melodies.

El unico disco de ellos que aguanto,temas muy accesibles y melodicos nada que ver con el anterior,eso si menos progresivo.

Rycheage, you must have had a hell of a station in your city - I never heard it on the airwaves until I got XM!! "Life In Still Water" & "Eye to Eye" are my faves here.

Cierto, "Life in Still Water" y sobretodo "Eye to Eye" fueron, son y serán muy buenas pero "The Eleventh Hour" es un super-mega-hiper Temazo de este excelente disco. "Point of View" fué su primer video-single, tema muy comercial. Ningún tema de relleno, todas son muy buenas, buen cambio para nada mal la voz de Ray alder pero yo me quedo con John Arch. Gran disco. 9/10

excellent release and FATES WARNING s finest hour!the band goes more commercial(at that time everybody was forced to do that due to the success of the hair metal genre) and this is a smart move !Terry Brown does an excellent job and the songs are polished and shorter!"eye to eye" is brilliant and their best song so far and Parallels sounds still fresh and satisfies everyone

Essential pretty much sums this one up, released at a time radio was clambering for such material Fates did what Fates should've, giving the material an appropriate nudge, the Matheos Aresti duo peaking easily on par with the DeGarmo Wilton's of the genre, completed by Alder's slight departure from his previous metallic vocal highs instead delivering a more earthy vocal allowing the emotion to bleed through, a voice even non-progsters could relate to. Lots to love but look no further than Life In Still Water which alone represents what 1991 Fates Warning were all about. Complete madness Life didn't get a single release for it's one heck of a tune, in fact the very first Fates heard by these ears & it's lost none of its appeal, As already mentioned We Say Goodbye was a cracking tune & is the perfect closer to a long day, be sure to fade the lights Looking back this record was near perfect, great songs art and sound - shame it didn't do even better business. One of the best! Rating 9

One of the band's best releases as it contains two brutal songs in the shape of "Point of View" & "Don't Follow Me"...some other fine moments are tracks # 2,3 & 8...enjoyable stuff...83/100
