Arch's vocal perfection makes this very good. Matheos plays his usual (for the last years) modern prog shit but generally this sounds 1000% better than the late Fates Warning albums. I miss the fantasy imagery/concept, though.

When the stars are right and you're alone, take a journey, lock the world tight - out of your mind ...

Oh yeah, to say I'm eagerly awaiting this album is an understatement - I've been awaiting it since the 80s when I received the devastating news that Arch had left FW after one the release of my favorite album of all time. This new sample sounds very promising indeed!

A Twist of Fate was cool but it was a drop of water to a very thirsty man, now at last we are getting our thirst properly slaked!

I think that's the heaviest sound Matheos have done lately. I miss that guitar sound in FW. Arch is a genius...

I understand that Jim, Alder and the other guys are tired, you know, many years on a wild run makes everything become harder. I really hope that this hiatus have made things more clear to them. I hope that this album with Arch(who's still a fuckin' singer!) is some kind of aperitive to something much bigger...

Man...Arch sounds so inspired and fresh. Wish Fates would have done another album with him after Awaken. I love No Exit but would have loved to hear just one more with Arch and a great production.

I wish they had done more with the vocal production. Arch is great but it sometimes sounds as if he had sung the whole album in one take.

This was my favorite album of 2011 and the only one I pre-ordered. John Arch and Jim Matheos autographed the booklet which was pretty cool of them.

"Awaken The Guardian" was a true classic in every sense of the word. Still, though, you have to remember that John Arch sang on the first full length "Night On Brocken" and to me it wasn't that great of an album... Nowhere NEAR as epic as A.T.G. "No Exit" was good, but yeah it wasn't the same. Who knows what will happen? Anyone remember that petition that some Greek fans were trying to get going to book Fates Warning for a Greek gig by having John Arch only for the tour?? Wonder whatever happened with that?

Arch is still top notch. The album is simply amazing and I can't wait to watch them live in KIT (where they will perform old Fates songs as well) (vking1)
