To me Mind's Eye has always been one of those progressive bands who have consistently released solid albums; the only thing their catalog missed was a truly monster record from start to finish. With their previous output Walking on H2O, however, they started to show signs for really great things to come, and finally they have put out their magnum opus: A Gentleman's Hurricane.

Based on a storyline akin to that of Queensryche's Operation: Mindcrime and perhaps also Dream Theater's Scenes from a Memory in that it deals with themes like murder, religion, and tragedy, A Gentleman's Hurricane is easily their most realized and complex work to date. For starters, the production of the band's brainchild Daniel Flores is mesmerizing, emphasizing numerous textures, thick soundscapes, and a remarkable mixing job. Daniel Flores, besides playing all drums and keyboards on the CD, is also responsible for the beautiful harmony vocals and the songwriting of pretty much the whole record. There are a few tracks he co-wrote with guitarist/bassist Johan Niemann though; these tunes also add substantially to the diversity of the record along with several guest musicians.

While the band chose to stay in more of prog-rock-meets-metal territory on earlier releases, they have decided to embark on a heavier disc overall with their new album. The bone-crunching rhythm guitar work exhibited on most of the songs is stupifying indeed. Songs such as "Seven Days" and "AssasiNation", both of which are graced by cinematic passages, also allow acoustic breaks and varied sound elements to come through, the latter laden with an infectious chorus by Andreas Novak who shifts between manipulated parts to rousing melodic sections in the blink of an eye.

I'll try to give you a few superlatives to help you understand why I appreciate this album: 80 minutes of excellent, well-crafted progressive metal. A bonus track on the special edition ("Those Who Fear") that is intensely personal, has touching lyrics, and beautiful melodies. The Celtic grandeur of "Graveyard Hands", complete with a haunting flute introduction that is reminiscent of an Irish bagpipe anthem. The spooky seesaw rhythm of "Skin Crawl". The manic, unbalanced revelations of "Pandora's Box", which is a ten minute magnum opus full of surprising melody changes, complex guitar/keyboard interplay, and challenging vocal phrasing by the singer. The catchy yet twisted groove of "Feed my Revolver". The mournful duet by Andreas and Mia in "The Hour of Need". The intense, adrenaline-sparking transition into "Say Goodnight", which is yet another song with a superb chorus. Andreas singing, "Open my wound, pour salt on it," in "Ashes to Ashes". The arctic chill of "Red Winter Sirens", which later thaws into a hopeful ballad.
I could go on, really; this CD is possibly better than "Walking on H2O", and that was one of my favorite discs of the last decade. Every song is tremendous. The booklet is first-class as well, telling an interesting story with provocative lyrics that never descend into banality. I absolutely love the cover art, which shows the chaos and destruction that follows the lead character around like a cyclone of turmoil in his brain. The production and mixing are uniformly outstanding, every instrument crystal clear. Mind's Eye is also generous when contructing their songs, every cut has multiple wonderful harmonies layered on top of one another, with startling dynamics that keep the listener intrigued. With this new CD, Mind's Eye is breaking new ground and proving that they have the chops to propel them into the elite of progressive rock music.

That's what I think of everytime I listen to this album- just 130mph-cranking down the highway-stereo blaring-high energy songs (Feed my...& Hysteria). No, they are not really like Muse...to me the closest sound I can compare them to is the 2 latest Sieges Even CD's. Both groups have incredible vocalists, and a unique way a mixing hard rock, prog, and a bit of symphonic. Again, their drummer, Daniel Flores, plays in some different bands, including Pedestrians of Blue, so follow him for some other good music. Also, in general, so many swedish and norwegian bands are so excellent and are worth investigating. [...].
