Unlike their contemporaries, Fates Warning never became a commercial hit, but their ability to evolve as a band has always been admired. Theories Of Flight takes their sound to new heights and long-time fans will definitely like what they hear. Vocalist Ray Adler gives his all, and his heartfelt delivery imbues Theories Of Flight with a personality not felt on many progressive metal albums. While technical, Fates Warning always had the ability to avoid sounding clinical, and this human touch gives Theories Of Flight a timeless quality.
Theories Of Flight is out now via EMI/Inside Out.
