5.0 out of 5 stars Giving No Exit some proper praise... June 29, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I read all the previous reviews and wondered...who actually listened and understood the greatness of this disc...
No Exit began the Ray Alder era...now the history...when Jim was auditioning singers...Ray inquired about the job and Jim sent him the melody section to "Quietus" from 'ivory gate,' and basically what you hear on the finished cd is the audition tape Ray sent him...so I guess he was hired instantly.
I like the changes of tone...the intro part to the cd...to the tensive screams of "Anarchy Divine" both "Silent Cries" and "In a Word" are strong passion plays, deep with emotion strong and guitar crunches.
But you buy this disc for "Ivory Gate." A fantastic foray into a seemingly mythologic look...I was told that Jim based it roughly on Homer's "Odyssey." So when the last reviewer said something about the relation to "Mindcrime" (which I love...the ryche is so cool) I was stunned. I don't like to compare stories...because "Mindcrime" is a real-life based story...and "Ivory Gate" is a fantastic dreamscape...
"Ivory Gate" has such a great flow to it...the only stumbling part for me was "Daylight Dreamers" it didn't seem to fit for me...but when "Quietus" followed...I quickly forgot about the weakness of the previous track...
What I like about "Ivory Gate" and the rest of Fates longer tracks (i.e. APSOG, Something from Nothing, Still Remains) the songs take on an epic story feel...and there's a tensive build-up to a powerful dramatic ending feel to the song...on this disc you can feel it with "Acquiesence," when Ray sings the final lines..

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best prog metal epics from the late 80's September 28, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Metal blade did a fabulous job w/ the re-release of "awaken the guardian". No Exit does not get quite the elaborate roll-out that Awaken did but the extras are pretty cool. On the cd you get 3 unheard tunes. One is a vocal audition that Ray mailed back to the band. The other two are 'lost' instrumentals that belonged in the Ivory Gate epic but the parts that were left out sound similiar to riffs that are already in the song. The dvd is cool at 45 min long but a bit frustrating since they always give you a fade in/fade out version of songs mashed together. You never do see one complete song from back in tha day w/ the exception of them doing Valley of the Dolls (a track from a previous album) and that quality is from a many-times dubbed VHS source. Also, the graphics and colors on the cd cover are just horrendous. It's almost like FW is an inside joke at Metal blade. First they spell their sophmore release "Spector" incorrectly and now the No Exit cover almost looks like a black and white image that was done by a fourth grader at computer camp. But, FW have proved that it is not the album covers (or videos) that makes this band unique it is the music that lays imbedded in the cd.
I remember seeing these guys on the No Exit tour at the thirsty Whale in Chicago. It was one of the last tours Ray would sing John Arch material and the crowd was just electric with joy while FW played. FW even hung in the pkg lot before the show and drank w/ us! Some of the greatest prog metal ever comes from the fingertips of this band. These guys are a bit more like a 'serious' and somber Dream Theater. Check out this classic release but all FW discs are good but the '92 era and before was when they were at their prog peak.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer perfection March 26, 2001
By Steve
Format:Audio CD
There are only 6 songs on this album, but this album rocks harder than any I've ever heard. There are some terrifyingly good guitar riffs on this CD, and the vocals, bass, and drums are top notch. Jim Matheos is a God when it comes to guitar! He has an excellent sense of melody, but also can rip face melting solos and riffs. He writes most of the music and lyrics of No Exit, and he single-handedly wrote 'The Ivory Gates of Dreams'. And let me tell you, that song rocks. Chock full of every guitarists best dream, 20 minutes of pure shred but also great acoustic playing and some great piano playing.
Ray Alders vocals are very unique, and very good. I had never heard him until buying No Exit, but I must say: he is one of the, if not THE, best progessive metal vocalist I've ever heard. His voice is very powerful and he has incredible range (he can hit notes higher that Tate or Halford easily.) His vocals add a powerful presence to the music and it really "opens" it up.
In closing, if you haven't bought this album already go get it immedietely. This CD is worth 'Ivory Gate of Dreams' alone, but yet you get 4 more killer songs on the CD. The song no exit isnt really a song. More of an intro.
It rocks. Buy it!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Standing the Test of Time, still a FANTASTIC work March 3, 2014
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I was literally given this cassette (my age is showing) at Ft. Jackson in 1988 by a fellow soldier.
From the moment I first listened to it, I was hoked.
This is among the finest metal works of all time in my book.
I rank it high in a category only populated by works like "Operation - Mindcrime" by Queensryche, and even
(albeit a lighter album) "Wish you were here" by Pink Floyd.
If you can digest those two, this one will become a fast love.
Present day; I still have this tape, somewhere, LoL.
I just downloaded this version to my HTC 1, and listened to it trucking southbound down 81 late at night in VA the other night,
It's still as truly wonderful an album as ever.
I give this more than 5 stars.
If you think you're a Metalhead, and you don't have this album, you're missing out.
BUY IT!

After awhile the singers voice just got on my nerves. Love the music, and these guys can really play, but i can hardly listen after a couple songs.
