Decided to dial this up on Spotify and give it another chance...people really seem to dig it. I was so into Prog Metal at one point, then strayed away from it. Maybe I just wasn't in the right mood or something...here goes nothin'...

My opinion hasn't really changed. I think they're a good band, and this album shows they're a good band. I have nothing against them. They remind me of early Dream Theater, which certainly isn't a bad thing. I like the singer and I like the melodic slant to the material. There's just something "missing" from it...I can't pinpoint it. I'll listen a few more times. I will say it came off a little better than I remember it being the first time I heard it.

I played this with headphones last night and again this morning on the way to work. It's really starting to open up to me now. The melodies are gorgeous and the dynamics are super-tasty.

I don't know why I this album did not register with me when I first heard it. I never thought it was "bad", but for whatever reason it did not make much of an impression. Thanks to Venom (and others who kept placing it on their year-end lists), I decided to give it another shot and see what I was missing. I'm glad I did. This is my first official Circus Maximus album, and now I have to explore the others.

Yeah, I love that album.  It's a great example of song based prog metal, with some beautiful AOR melodies.  Isolate is similarly awesome, but I've never been able to get into their debut too much - that one is pretty blatant Dream Theater worship.
