      Evergrey's third album (2001).

      I've always been frustrated that this album comes so close to being a prog metal classic, but is held back by the prevalence of frankly rubbish ballads. Evergrey have an excellent grasp of atmosphere, and songs frequently indulge in slower, more melodic sections to balance out the heavy riffs elsewhere, but the ballad songs 'State of Paralysis,' 'Mark of the Triangle' and 'Different Worlds' push this to extremes of boredom.

      With that major gripe out of the way, this is an otherwise excellent work of progressive power metal, drowned in keyboards that add an epic flair and intersected with spoken word sections narrating the story of the central character's paranoia over his suspected alien abduction. Many songs are instantly memorable, from the somewhat poppy chorus of 'The Masterplan' to the effective use of piano in 'Rulers of the Mind' and the solo in 'Watching the Skies,' and with its generally steady pace the musicians make the few faster sections all the more effective.

      1. The Masterplan
      2. Rulers of the Mind
      3. Watching the Skies
      4. State of Paralysis
      5. The Encounter
      6. Mark of the Triangle
      7. Dark Waters
      8. Different Worlds
      9. Misled
