Vanishing Point

Tangled In Dream


Given LMP’s rep for pushing ponced-up power metal on the prissy masses, to say I wasn’t looking forward to this, Vanishing Point’s Tangled In Dream, is the understatement to end all understatements. Well, wudda ya know, Tangled In Dream (brilliant title • what are you guys, German?) vaguely strikes these ears as a less-prog, more-modern (if you can actually qualify such things as “modern”) take on Crimson Glory’s Transcendence, which was vaguely a more-prog, less-modern take on Queensryche’s Rage For Order two years previous • and there’s just no fucking with ’80s ‘Ryche, and like, Transcendence ain’t too shabby, either. Or whatever. At least it’s not Ivory Tower (groan) or Mob Rules (grunt). Next!
