Absolute masterpiece - essence of all the qualities of prog metal. Incredible ideas, Buddy Lackey's work is just ... awesome !
I think this record pales in comparison to "Images And Words" only through the quality of sound ...

Maybe its just the mood that i'm in but many times I felt like their songs were upwards of 10 minutes only to find out they're about half. Regardless I don't think there's a single bad song on this album. Cover is great too.

I can see..., No wonder you like Hammer of Misfortune so much, they're both play more "classical progressive" style. Images & Words is more heavy metal type of progressive metal, they're really different, not comparable.

I liked track 1, 3, 5, 6

Both albums are perfect, but I prefer A Social Grace because I don't like commercially motivated compromises.

As for Hammers Of Misfortune - this is the most undervalued prog metal band over the past 14 years.
