Psyco Drama: The Illusion

Wielding a progmetal sound that is light on the keyboards and heavy on the syncopated beats, Psyco Drama pour out an hour of fascinating, compelling music on The Illusion.

Vocalist Corey Brown has a simply gorgeous voice that recalls early Triumph, and it glides smoothly over the complex melodies he traces. In the background, the guitar lines are complicated and involving: funky pulse-beats that remind me of Shadow Gallery at times, they frequently go in unexpected directions, as in the ending of "Flames."

I'm particularly fond of "Eyes of a Child," one of the catchiest progmetal songs in a long time, which has a chorus that just won't leave your head, as well as some beautifully surreal lyrics. Also notable is "World Gone Mad," a funky, driving tune with great vocal melodies.

Fans of old-school metal like Queensryche, and fans of smart rock in general, will find a lot to love on this album.
