James LaBrie returns with his third solo album and it is yet another excellent melodic metal album that cements his position as a quality solo artist with style. The music on Impermanent Resonance is a mixture of hard hitting metal and melodic ballads featuring lots of keyboard textures and excellent production topped off with the uniquely expressive vocals of LaBrie. There are so many vocal hooks on this album especially in the choruses that it almost sounds like a form of pop metal but it is a great sound that suits LaBrie very well. There is some screaming but it is used much more sparingly than on Static Impulse and it mixes in so much better showing that LaBrie and his production team clearly took the advice of fans who wanted more clean vocals and a better mix of screams. The only slight negative is the simple lyrics that are often cliche but it seems that Peter Wichers wrote most of it so I can't take away too much from LaBrie who sings them well. The band is the same winning combination used on Static Impulse and features the awesome guitar skills of virtuoso Marco Sfogli who really lays down some amazing riffs and solos, Matt Guillory on keys and backing vocals, Ray Riendeau on bass, and the killer drumming skills of Peter Wildoer on drums and screams! Highlights include the rocking metal opener "Agony" which sets the mood nicely, the amazing verse riffs and powerful groove of "Slight Of Hand" which is the best song on the album, the massive chorus hook of "I Got You", the awesome production and memorable vocal melodies of "Letting Go", and the epic power ballad "Stay You're Still Mine". The European version comes in a nice digipack with the two bonus tracks "Unraveling" and "Why" which are in the same style as the rest of the album. Impermanent Resonance is another strong addition to James LaBrie's solo discography and is highly recommended to fans of high quality hook filled melodic metal - 4.5 stars.

Three years after shocking a lot of fans with his 2010 release Static Impulse, Dream Theater vocalist James LaBrie is back with a new solo album. The album is titled Impermanent Resonance, and it's the singer's third proper solo album (depending on how you look at the two Mulmuzzler releases). LaBrie is once again joined by two contributors who have played a major role in how his solo career has progressed. The first is keyboardist Matt Guillory and the second is Darkane drummer Peter Wildoer, who once again delivers harsh, death metal style vocals.

If you're one of the fans who hated the more melodic death metal side of Static Impulse, you're not going to be any happier with Impermanent Resonance. This album is very much a continuation of that sound. For a lot of us, that sound was a real shot of energy, and one that made people look at LaBrie in a new light. Impermanent Resonance is still a progressive metal album, more so than anything else, but Wildoer's harsh vocals are front and center, so it does feel like it could be a Soilwork or Mercenary album at times.

James LaBrie has always been the underrated member of Dream Theater, so it's always good to see him on a project like this where both his voice and his considerable songwriting skills shine. On Impermanent Resonance, you get to hear his full range and the warmth and power of his voice, and he doesn't have to take a back seat to 12-minute instrumental solos. The music has a good degree of technicality (the drumming in particular stands out), but it is equally melodic and still quite aggressive. Think Dream Theater meets Soilwork.

This is Labrie's best work to date! I actually prefer his solo work, especially this album, to DT. Every song on this album has a MONSTER-radioish sing-a-long-arena rock chorus. When the hooks come in, you can hear and feel the emotion in James's voice and it makes you want to start singing loud along with him. Buy this CD you won't regret it.

I normally don't write reviews of albums but felt obliged to say something. Anyone who has followed James Labrie through his career will appreciate how amazing this album is. It represents a culmination of his talents as a singer and songwriter and the passion, intelligence and finesse at every level that has gone into this musical gem. The incredible vocals, the superb guitar of Sfogli, the drumming, bass and keyboards and overall production quality - they all culminate to what represents some the finest music available today.

This is one of those albums that knocks your socks off from the beginning and gets better with each listen. The melodies are subtle but amazingly catchy and many could easily be radio hits. The perfect combination of melody and heavy guitar without dumbing it down. I especially appreciate how the lyrics cut to the chase without fluff and carry the passion without being over the top. Highly addictive. Songs I want to crank to full volume in high fidelity. If only 10% of the music I hear could be this good. Congrats and thanks to James and the crew for making this happen and continuing to give us great tunes and making the world a better place!
