Redemption – Long Night’s Journey into Day Review

“Once upon a time I went all in for the larger than life prog bombast of Fates Warning and later, Dream Theater.  I admired the cerebral nature of both their works and the mind-blowing level of technical proficiency with which they delivered it.  Over the years, Dream Theater lost their way and the ability to deliver memorable material, but Fates Warning modified and ultimately streamlined their sound to remain a reliable, engaging act 30-plus years into their career arc.  Redemption, a sort of prog super group helmed by Fates Warning‘s Ray Alder and some Fates expats, has managed a successful run of albums by following Fates‘  blueprint and delivering songs first, with wankery added in a relatively unobtrusive way.” A long noodle’s journey.
