In God's Grand Book of Progressive, a whole chapter would be dedicated to Threshold. He seems to be a fan of closing doors to be opening windows so I imagine that Threshold would be high on His list anyways. The band has a rich history.

Very solid performance from prog veterans.
Insane consistency over 30 years.

First listen today, I enjoyed it, one of the most consistent bands out there, they always deliver.

Consistency is their middle name, and this record proves it once again. Another great release from this band!

Even taking into account that there are a few slightly autopilot moments here and there (especially when it comes to the vocal writing), and the record as a whole may have benefited from a little trimming, it is still amazing how the band manages to consistently put out such quality albums. This is a hefty helping of good old Threshold - inspired, dark, accessible and yet very subtle. Maybe not quite as mind-blowing as 'Legends', but still very good in its own right. They deserve way more recognition than they get.

I'm not really all that familiar with Threshold (as of yet), how I've overlooked this band is beyond me but this I have to say is a very impressive album with some great songwriting. I'm really liking the track "The Domino Effect", It's like a clever mix of Rush and Dream Theater

Threshold have been able to put out 12 great albums in a row, and these guys have been active since the late 1980's. Talk about a one helluva consistent band. I only wish they would get more recognition for their brilliance.

You've got a lot of guts. Let's see what they look like!

This is amazing! I don't know how I managed to miss out on ever checking out this band, but it seems they have also quite a long and strong back catalogue of releases. Guess I have something to do in the upcoming days.

Two times through and this is nothing other than brilliant. I will stand in line with everyone else here and praise their career. 12 records where the weakest still gets a 7. I've considerd them one of my favourite bands for many many years and with this one they climb even higher on my charts.

This album is good! There isn't a bad song but also nothing that really sticks out. Solid effort from these guys.

Threshold would have to be my favourite band, and it's really hard to pick a favourite. But simply because there isn't really anything I don't like about them combined with the extension of their career, that's alot of material to enjoy!

Very nice album indeed. Not my best Prog Metal listening of the past year, but really enjoyable though.

Wilderun (their last album had plenty of Prog influences) and Persefone (intrincate but very enjoyable album).

I liked their previous two albums more but I also love this album especially the song Defence condition. Also would you look at their album scores? Haven't seen such consistency from any band.
