Fans of bands like Dream Theater will find themselves caught by throes of ecstasy upon listening to Symphony X's latest, "Twilight in Olympus". It's a positively captivating CD filled with the plenty of interesting progressive ingredients welded together in good tracks, with guitarist Michael Romeo instilling a certain Malmsteen-esque element for good accord.

Containing eight tracks, "Twilight in Olympus" rarely fails to sound challenging. Granted, there's a short ditty based on a classical theme that might be skipped, and perhaps the somewhat pretentious 13+ minute "Through the Looking Glass (Part I, II and III)" tends to lose focus at times, but other than that this CD is just guaranteed to please.
