5 stars 4,5 rounded to 5

One of the most polished and solid prog metal albums I ever heared in last years. 5th season is the last album from 2007 of this prog metal act from Germany. Better then the predecesor, with a plus on compositions, they take care more of subtle arrangements, the musicianship is outstanding, and the pieces flow from one to another in a spectacular way. Well is true again we have traces of Dream Theater, but this is not a proble here this album is better then anything Dream Theater release after Scenes from amemory. The voice of Roland Stoll is excellent on this album, quite better then on previous work, from high range to mellower aproach, this guy is a shining star among vocalists these days. The interplays between guirat and keys is again brilliant, leaving the listner with breath taken. From odd time signatures to complex arrangemnts make from this Dreamscape last effort a truly amazing work in prog metal. Germany always was and is a pile in this sugenre, giving some outstanding bands, just to name a few Vanden Plas, Avalon, etc. So 5th season desearve from me a full 5 stars, recommended among the best prog metal albums these days. Fav pieces: the opening track Fed Up With, the title track 5th Season - a super example how must sound prog metal today, well written and well composed and above all not boring one second, Somebody and Diffrent. Higly recommended for all prog metal listners and a masterpiece of this subgenre.
