      Fates Warning's fifth album (1989).

      'Perfect Symmetry' marks Fates Warning's crossover from progressively-minded heavy metal band to full-blown prog metal act, retaining the classic metal influence in the guitar solos, dual lead harmonies and the occasional riff (such as the Helloween style guitars of 'Static Acts,' the most traditionally metal song on here along with the shrieking 'The Arena'), but otherwise defining its own impressive, though rather repetitive sound.

      Ray Adler's vocals sound distinctly like Geoff Tate of Queensrÿche, which can't help the band's case for individuality against that genre competitor, but the keyboards of Kevin Moore (also playing in Dream Theater at the time) create a great atmosphere that the rest of the music sadly fails to completely fill out in a satisfying way.

      The album is spoiled by a few too many slow songs and ballads, but is otherwise still a relevant and enjoyable entry in the progressive metal canon, and one of its formative works.
