According to the label, the wildly ambitious 10-song disc sees the founder, chief songwriter and prime mover of the progressive titans Symphony X furthering his reputation as one of the world's preeminent axe slingers and composers of adventurous, multi-faceted orchestral metal.

When I saw Romeo in the title I thought he had died This is much better news

So this is why the riffs on Underworld were garbage. He kept them for his solo effort!

My thoughts exactly. And so many of these riffs sound EXACTLY like the riffs of the past two records...

I have a feeling this album will be a collection of songs that weren't good enough for the last three Symphony X albums.

I Would not say ruined because the singer is not so bad, but I agree with you for an Instrumental album...

I think this is actually the result of Russell Allen being involved in too many side projects and not having enough time for Symphony X.

Really? based solely off this song I think it would have been a lot less dynamic if the vocals weren't present. Plus these vocals are great as far as clean metal vocalists go. Don't see how metal fan could dislike it without being a fussy nitpicker.

The singer isn't bad, I agree, but that chorus is bad. The chorus alone makes me not want to listen to the song. How it's sung is so poppy to me and I simply don't like it. I like the rest of the song though.

I wouldn't be surprised if Russell is a little apprehensive about getting back into things since the accident. Going through something like that will fuck you up. I don't think he's really done anything since then, has he?

I guess a neoclassical Symphony X album is still a pipe dream

Hold the phone. I did a couple of minutes of Google'ing and came up with nothing. Allen was in an accident? Can you provide any details?

Huh? The news about the crash appeared here, on Blabbermouth and even on the website of the public French-speaking Belgian television, RTBF.
