The track listing above is for the "standard jewelcase" edition." THe deluxe edition is spread over two discs and contains the all twelve songs in the sequence the band had originally intended. All of which could have been avoided if they had cut out just three minutes of excess fat, and then it would all have fit on one disc.

So anyway, the music: Normally, I hate this kind of extremely technical, intricate prog-metal. But for some reason, ever since I first heard them, Symphony X have been an (the?) exception. They don't forget to be heavy while they do what they do. Michael Romeo worships at the altar of Yngwie, but has such a thick, beefy tone, while Russell Alllen is a self-described "rock singer in a prog-metal band," coming across like a (somewhat) raspier Ray Gillen. The band really don't bring anything new to this style of music: same weird time signatures, busy keys, long songs, "majestic" meelodies, and yeah, lofty concepts that more often than not come off as laughably cheesy. Like on the first song: "We are strong! Fight, fight, fight!" This is a concept album about technology taking over the world and humans becoming obsolete--wholly unoriginal subject matter in metal.

But even so ... I dig it. I can't help myself. Even when it gets silly in its over-seriousness, Sympony X simply do this shit better than anybody. Get the pecial edition so you don't miss a second.
