Profoundly Technical

(5 out of 5 stars)

"People need to stop writing reviews that use improper English and/or spelling. Are you really going to listen to someone who sounds like they didn't make it past the 2nd grade? I am here to say that this CD is jaw-dropping,and unbelievably technical. I once heard that their musicianship rivaled that of Dream Theatre's, and I thought; "Not possible." ... but truely it is possible. The tracks "Pharoah", "The Accolade", and "The Witching Hour" are catchy and vastly superior in technicality to any other music out there, amazing. The song "Divine Wings of Tragedy" will prove to you once and for all, they have the talent of few or no others. If you are a fan of ANY genre of metal, and you possess your sanity, buy this CD right now."
The Divine Wings of Tragedy: An incredible display of talent

"Symphony X's masterpiece, Divine Wings of Tragedy, surpasses every other prog metal group I've heard. I don't even like the whole CD. In fact, a few songs I can't even stand to listen to. But several are absolutely incredible. The Accolade and the title song alone are entirely worth the cost of the CD. Those certainly aren't the only good songs on the CD though. In addition to the others, Of Sins and Shadows and Sea of Lies are both VERY well made. A few of the songs' lyrics seem a little forced to me. Almost like the lyricist is trying too hard. Aside from that, I recommend this CD to anyone who enjoys music with a solid foundation of complex, well-written compositions."
