Shadow Gallery's 2001 release Legacy is a much more speedy release in the timeline of the band than the three and four year separations between past albums in their discography. The band returned in 1999 with new drummer Joe Nevolo. The result is two consistent albums featuring catchy melodic progressive rock/metal. Legacy is much more adventurous then it's predecessor with musicianship then on conceptuality. The epic and grandiose progression of building technical musicality shows up as in introduction and epic conclusion on Legacy while shorter melodic mid-paced progressive pieces make up the middle. Legacy does not fail to deliver the flawless off-time erratic riffs, soft/hard arrangements, speeding up and slowing down in crazy time signatures and layers upon layers of virtuosity in every song. If you like consistent skillful soloing presented as if there were almost no effort involved at all due to the sheer genius of what you're hearing then Legacy is an album you want.
