threshold are probably the best uk progressive rock band, with all the press coverage for dream theater over the last couple of years im suprised no uk rock magazine hasn't championed threshold. dead reckoning is one of the best pro metal albums i've ever heard slipstream is a classic commercial track, if anyone out there likes dream theater do yourselves a favour and get a copy of this cd you will not be dissapionted i assure you. the musician ship is second to none.I was actually really looking forward to this album as a result, and I was surely not disappointed at all. I was at first slightly put off by the album's more resoundingly commercial sound. The other Threshold songs I had heard were obviously very melodic and catchy, but this time around there seemed to be quite a few more that were focused on the catchiness of the melodies, and less on an epic expansive structure, but I mistook more simple songs for hollowness. Yes, I was indeed a moron, for this album is equally as good as Hypothetical. Songs such as "Slipstream" and "This Is Your Life" may be more commercial (with Slipstream having quite a hard rocky touch to the main verse: nice touch, actually), but it is also equally as powerful, catchy and memorable.

My most played album # 500. Threshold - Dead Reckoning. I love this band that America never heard. Big in Europe because they love metal. They sound a lot like Dream Theater. Threshold, Wounded land is my #2 most played album, Extinct Instinct is #71, March of progress was at #127 but moved up about 60 spots. Critical Energy #233, Subsurface #315 moving up, Clone #307 but moved up 80 spots. Self titled #449.

Mac이 사망 전 마지막으로 참여한 앨범으로, IQ/Marillion 풍의 네오프록 어프로치를 다시 조화시키는 데미안 윌슨 재직시기와는 달리 좀 더 칼 그룸의 장기인 커팅을 활용한 80년대 헤비메탈의 폼에 가까운 작품입니다. 댄 스와노의 피쳐링이나 보코더 사용, 보교재였던 일렉트로닉 소스를 좀 더 부각시키면서도 흡입력있는 선율을 붙잡고 놓치지 않습니다.

회사갈때 차에서 듣는 단골 음반.. 정말 질리지가 않는다..하지만 후반부에서 약간 아쉬움..

잘 알려지진 않았지만 프록메탈계열 밴드중 숨은 보석이 아닐까싶다. 서정적인면도 있고 헤비메탈같이 화끈한면도 있다. 추천트랙은 5,6,9강추!

아 One Degree Down 넘흐 좋다 ㅜㅜ
level   90/100
NWOBH의 느낌이 물씬 느껴지는, 그러면서도 쉽게 접근할 수 있는 몇 안되는 프록 수작. 전작들에 비해 좀 더 헤비해지고 묵직해졌으나 이들 특유의 서정미는 여전하다. Best Track: Fighting for breath, One Degree Down

서정적인 멜로디가 일품이다.
level 12   86/100
마지막 곡 강추한다. 테크니컬한 면모보다는 간편하고 들뜬 분위기의 사운드를 들려준다.
level 11   84/100
프로그레시브계의 숨겨진 준명반. 다른 밴드들에 비해 서정적인 면모가 강조되는 것이 매력이다.
level 11   86/100
전작의 노선을 그대로 이어가며 이번 앨범은 더욱더 몽환적이면서 서정적인면이 더 강조되었다.
