Most people consider “Awaken the Guardian” to be Fates Warning’s shining moment, but the album that outshone everything else by miles to me is “Perfect Symmetry.”

Perfect Symmetry is the band’s transition from a fantastical, proggy almost-Power Metal band into a full fledged modern Progressive Metal band, and one of the first albums ever to conceptualize this sound. Gone are the tales of high fantasy and abandoned are the speedy and uplifting metal epics that iconized their earlier sound. Here, they have traded their swords and steeds in acceptance of the reality that the world is a cold, unfriendly place that eats dreamers alive. They have become part of a machine of finely tuned skill and technicality – here the whole band play incredibly complex parts, alone but in unison, creating a cacophony of different melodies and rhythms that never play against each other.

One mistake you could make in reading that is to think they have become technical cogs incapable of producing melodies of beautiful passion. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Vocalist Ray Alder commands his voice like an instrument, but never shies away from simply crying out the sorrows of being smothered in the constraints of modern society. The lyrics across the board sound like those of a man who dreamed of grandeur as a child, but had those dreams quashed by reality. The only options are to hold out a last shred of hope that tomorrow holds something new, or allow oneself to die int

1세대와 2세대 프로그레시브를 연결하는 가교. 힘보다 정교함을 강조한 리프 위에 얹어진 케빈 무어의 키보드 라인의 조화가 인상적이며, 최소한의 밴드 사운드로 보여줄 수 있는 연주의 극대화로 완성된, 페이츠 워닝의 저력이 유감 없이 표출되는 작품입니다. 그 연주력이 잘 묻어나오는 5번 트랙이 베스트.

페이츠와닝의 모든걸 보여주는 앨범.. 드림씨어터와는 다른 전개속에 그들만의 세련되고 정제된 프록유전자가 아주 화려하게 펼쳐진다.. 프록메탈의 시발점이 된 앨범... 들어도 들어도 리프와 프라시딩이 새롭게 다가오는 강력 추천앨범..

이전까지 스래쉬풍의 리프가 많이 줄어들고 좀 더 프로그레시브한 곡 전개에 중심축을 옮겨진 (+케빈 무어의 따뜻한 질감의 키보드 선율까지) 페이츠 워닝의 수작. 그리고 레코딩도 더 세련되어졌다.
