Staff review by

This album is the salvation for Symphony X music! After the ugly eponymous album Symphony X, the guys from New Jersey created a good album that would define their musical style for many years. From the first song to the last, The Damnation Game sounds really interesting. With a new singer, Russell Allen, and on the basis of their first album, Symphony X manages to produce something different on the musical scene.

Rating: 9 I miss it when Allen's voice was soulful and brooding, like in The Edge of Forever and A Winter's Dream. I haven't heard that quality since Lady of the Snow. This album is a nice mix of such tracks and heavy hitters like Dressed to Kill and The Damnation Game. Very solid.

Rating: 9 I miss those days when Symphony X actually had beautiful melodies and a lot of emotions in the songwriting. "The Edge of Forever" and "A Winter's Dream" are two of their best tracks and the rest is also fine stuff.
