    Dead Reckoning is a simply awesome album!

    Whoever is into Symphony X should really enjoy it, too. If you never heard of them, then click my banner to hear some tasty samples.

    Threshold made fantastic work on new album. There's lot of energy in all songs, great melodies... it can't be described by words, you must hear it.

    It is simply great - a real variety of tracks with something for everyone but still their own sound. Can't wait for the next one!!!

    I'm listening to their first sample on the website, and I can swear this is Savatage reborn....

    I'm really enjoying it. There are some great melodies in there as well as kick ass riffing, a winning combination. Glad I discovered them!

    hmmm, looks like im the odd man out here, i really didn't like it much at all. im hoping threshold changes up their style on their next cd, imo its starting to get a bit stale and their running out of interesting riffs. Hypothetical is their peak for me and its all gone continuously downhill from there. Slipstream is the only song on the new cd that i really enjoy listening too.

    I thought Dead Reckoning was good, but not as strong as Hypothetical or Subsurface. Those two were incredible. However, I'm sure DR will grow on me.

    Does anyone else think Threshold sounds like a heavier version of 80's Rush with a little metal thrown in?

    I must say that Pilot in the Sky of Dreams is one of their best songs, though.
