I like this record and of course I like the way Brendt Allman plays his guitar too.

From: Rycheage Date: September 5, 2001 at 17:52
This CD is excellent. Mike Baker has outdone himself on this one. Great story of a disgruntled factory worker who leaves all behind to find himself unaware he is being followed. Fantastic production. Highly recommend.

From: WhiteLion Date: September 20, 2001 at 10:17
One of the best prog bands out there but they have a weak spot. The singer doesn't fill the songs like Russel Allen or James Labrie. Sure Mike has a special vocie but not as delivering as one could have hoped.

ĦDISCAZO DE PRINCIPIO A FIN!Los amantes del rollo progresivo no deberian dejar escapar esta joya.Influenciados por Queensr˙che y por Dream Theater,tienen algunos temas largos pero no se te hacen pesados,como les ocurre a la mayoria de bandas de este estilo.Un disco curradisimo en todos los sentidos,grandes coros llenos de melodia,partes de piano fabulosas,una gran producción y en definitiva un disco TRABAJADO,TRABAJADO.

From: koogles Date: October 26, 2002 at 10:05
A bit bloated, could have been a better album with a tighter, more selective track listing. "Mystery" is the big chorus track on this CD, like "Crystalline Dream" from "Carved". These guys are right up there with Royal Hunt and Dream Theater as the BIG 3 of 90s progressive metal.

From: GlenRavine Date: February 17, 2003 at 17:24
Not bad - listenable. Really love this band and can't wait to hear new material whenever that is - those who the love the band will not be disappointed.

From: Warlordy Date: February 17, 2003 at 19:03
Referring to GlenRavine's post,this record is way above just "listenable". Personally I consider this to be one of the best 3-4 records of the 90s.It's just perfect,not a single moment could sound better.The solos have been recorded over 60 times for them to get the best result. Mind that SG have never performed live because they say that they would want to fully reproduce the feeling and atmosphere of their studio works. 11/10

El mejor disco de Shadow Gallery hasta la fecha. Un disco infaltable para los amantes del Hard Progresivo, notorias influencias de Dream Theater pero sin llegar a ser tan monotono como ocurres algunas veces con estos. Para destacar, los temas lentos del disco.

From: drummer Date: January 4, 2005 at 14:06
Hell yea.. i take lessons from joe nevolo himself. This guy is amazing. Its scary the stuff he can do on a drumset. Probably one of the best drummers i've ever heard. He's definitely up there with Mike Portnoy and Jason Rullo from symphony x.

From: Rycheage Date: March 19, 2005 at 19:37
From RELEASE DATE: Inside Out has set the release date at May 30, 2005 for "ROOM FIVE" the next Shadow Gallery release. Keep watching for more details!

From: YNGWIEVIKING Date: September 27, 2007 at 2:33
HUGE CD if you are into SMART PROG ROCK with some METAL touches !! 96/100 the musicianship is stellar very high level of playing but not too demonstrating ! so don't be afraid it's really a fluid ,sensitive record for everybody who want some intelligent music/lyrics !they are all killer musicians/singers !/ You can hear some RUSH/D.T./PINK FLOYD/KANSAS/JETHRO TULL/ELP/ROYAL HUNT/STYX/SAGA/LIQUID TENSION EXPERIMENT/THE DREGGS/YES even SYMPHONY Xetc...HUGE !

From: YNGWIEVIKING Date: September 27, 2007 at 2:56
And the vocals duo on the terrific"new world order" with DC COOPER (ex ROYAL HUNT/EXPLORER's CLUB/STEEL SEAL now with AMARAN'S PLIGHT/SILENT FORCE) is just AMAZING ! one of the best D.C.COOPER performance !and MIKE BAKER is just GREAT as always !!!!

From: hair metal again Date: October 1, 2010 at 1:46
this is their best release till 98 for sure.very good production at last,better songwriting with more catchy tunes and not so long can see the skill again all over and its a very good heavy prog release.standout tracks are "out of nowhere" and "hope for us".pretty good
