    I'll need more time to really decide how this measures up to other Symphony X releases, but it certainly isn't bad at all. The title track is a little...weird for them, though.

    This new one rules ... a buddy aptly described it as The Odyssey meets The Divine Wings Of Tragedy. It might actually be their heaviest disc to date, but also contains some of those magical ballady moments as well. It's well worth the long wait between discs, as it won't dissapoint many. I think this disc will soon be dominating the majority of this board.

    That's what I thought listening to it too oddly enough. Is it just me or do I actually hear some music from DWOT on the new album from time to time?

    I heard a familiar part or two in the final track ... Revelation (Divus Pennae ex Trageodia). Isn't that latin for something similar to the divine wings of tragedy? There could be a possible tie-in there.

    I actually do think it is "Divine Wings of Tragedy" in latin, but I'm not exactly an expert. It's also interesting that the theme of both Paradise Lost (duh) and DWOT (the song) is Paradise Lost.

    Yeah .. I think there is definately some thematic similarities between the two, so I wouldn't be suprised to see Symphony X also have some intrumental tie-ins along the way. I only picked out one totally similar part, but I haven't been able to digest this with the headphones on yet.

    I'm almost positive the very end of Revelation is from DWOT, I'll listen to it again in a bit and see what else I can pick up. :)

    I'm interested in the lyrics. Paradise Lost has some of the best written english I've read.

    Symphony X just showed the progmetal community that this is how you fucking do it. Hands down. Album of the year.

    SIMPLY AMAZING! I can't freaking wait to hear some of this new stuff live at BB Kings. It's like a cross between Odyssey and V, with a little bit of Divine Wings thrown in. <3 teh Russ.
