3 stars Dead reckoning is their eight studio album from 2007. Threshold needed 3 years to release this album and to tell the truth is not better then the predecesors, but not weak either. Something worth mentioning is that Threshold has albums with a constant quality, I mean every single album is good and has something to offer, one of those bands from progressive metal that realy knows to make the listner glad avery time he finishes an Threshold album. This band don't have highs and lows, Threshold has only highs from the beggining, well of course their albums never reaches the masterpiece status in my opinion, but for sure all are good, some of them great and worth investigated by everybody intrested in good music. Dead reckogning is again well made with tipycal Threshold sound, nice vocal parts made Mac Dermott, he's final studio album with them after all, pitty he was a great key to Threshold music. All the pieces stands as good, not a weak moment here, the two pieces Sleapstrem and Elusive where is invited legendary Dan Swano from Edge of Sanity are well constructed and give a special atmosphere to the album, a little more diversivity in their music was needed because their last 2 albums beggining to sound a little dated and monotonous. In the end another typical Threshold album, nothing more nothing less, a good album that desearve 3 stars, but nothing realy impressive either. Every musican did a great job here, is clear that they know bussines in progresssive metal, Karl Groom's guitar is again crunchy and yet very melodic when needed, excellent guitarist, but far away in popularity then John Petrucci, wonder why???? Even is a 3 star album Threshold remeins one of my fav bands from this sugenre, quite less popular then other acts but with a lot of potential, still they haven't run dry after more then 15 years of career.
