Staff review by
Demonic Tutor

After the release of the excellent "The Divine Wings Of Tragedy", the new Symphony X opus "Twilight In Olympus" had high standards to fulfill. But once again, the band from New Jersey did a good job with keeping their own particular progressive heavy style. Loud guitar riffs, clean melodies and breathtaking while powerful vocals. Michael Romeo is still playing like a god and most of the songs are memorable.

Great and underrated album!

Amen! It seems like many people think this album suffers a bit from being caught in-between two masterpieces, but I was almost a little surprised to find myself thinking; it's right on par with all the other incredible albums from this band. "Smoke And Mirrors", "Looking Glass", "Orion", "Lady Of The Snow", etc, they're all out of this world.

Rating: 8 Through The Looking Glass might take a few pointers from Dream Theater's "Surrounded" at the beginning, but is a truly remarkable song on a solid is slightly uneven album.
