5 Stars - This Cd should have catapulted FW to the moon. For the price, the making of DVD is worth it alone.
I have not written a review in some time but had to after re-re discovering this gem from 1991.

This edition comes with the remastered CD (featuring all 8 masterpieces), a live CD set recored on 1/23/92 in Hollywood, Ca, and a DVD. The DVD features the making of parallels doc, 2 videos, and a live show filmed on 2/13/92 in New Haven Ct.

quick CD overview:

It is remastered and that could be good or bad, I think it is good in this case although the original sounded great as well. You can really hear all the cymbals and there are a lot of them way out in front. Jim Matheos's textures and tones sound better than ever. This sounds like it was released today and not in 1991.

Track by track-

Leave the past behind - Sounds great with the immediate impact of the rhythm section of Mark Zonder and Bpnes. The idea, forget what you know about Fates Warning up to now, lets move on to something new (Progressive Metal as it would eventually be named).

Life in Still Water - One of the heaviest songs on he CD. Still a live staple.

Eye to Eye - The closest thing to a pop song that FW can do, and I defy you to not sing along to it. Actually got a fair bit of radio and video play.

the eleventh hour - absolute gem in the FW catalogue. I won't describe it hear because I want you to buy the CD to hear it. I may even suggest that it gave Dream Theater the idea that long songs were cool if at a high quality.

point of view - another sing along and though provoking. This one also has a video.

Don't get me wrong; I have been a Fate's fan for over 20 years and have never had a chance to see them perform live, until this special re-release w/dvd and the bonnaroo dvd they released previously but thought that was kind of a fluke due to poor recording techniques. Jim Matheos is a brilliant and thoughtful song writer who's work could have really brought them huge fame and recognition. His tag team lead guitar work with Frank Aresti is mesmorizing. Drummer Mark Zonder and bassist Joe DiBiase are really the heartbeat of the band and Zonder's flawless timing puts him easily alongside greats like Neal Peart, Carl Palmer,et al. The most glaring flaw in their live performances is Ray Alder, who's sometimes can and cannot vocals are distracting, puzzling, and just sometimes awful. I know this is prog metal but had they hired someone like Dio or Joe Lynn Turner, or Jeff Scott Soto, guys who can actually sing as well live as on the record, Fate's would have been catapulted into the limelight. I really believe Ray's live performances are what held them back. And to hear producer Terry Brown's comments regarding Alder's "diva" behavior makes his hiring all that more puzzling. The other members of the band seem so dedicated, concerned, and professional that I can only imagine what Matheos was thinking when he hired Alder. The 2nd audio cd, with live performances, has utterly horrendous vocals, with Alder screaming and vocally scraping, almost always off-key, through most every song. He does have the ability to really shine on some of the softer elements like " The 11th Hour" or "The Road Goes On Forever" but overall, if you've anyone else in the room, they're gonna say "what the hell is this?" I'm still a fan of the band as a unit, but I'll stick to the studio version of things. Which, by the way, sounds stellar on this re-release.

Having grown up listening to Fates Warning from the John Arch era, I was pretty skeptical about the direction the band would go with a new singer after Awaken the Guardian which I consider to be the single greatest progressive metal offering of all time. Their next album, No Exit, did not disappoint on any level and if anything it's probably the tightest, chunkiest thing they've done to date. Perfect Symmetry would see the band dump some of the really heavy, chunky riffing for a more thoughtful, progressive approach. PS would become a harbinger of things to come. You could somewhat sense that Fates Warning was headed in a softer direction which I didn't think would ever happen after listening to albums like The Spectre Within through No Exit. Yet, low and behold Parallels was dropped in our laps and it obliterated any and all pretenses about which direction the band was headed musically. So much for the denim and black leather vests from days or yore. With songs like Eye to Eye it was no surprise at all that they were wearing dress clothing and having their hair teased for music videos. I'm just thankful that what was supposed to be their "big break" fell apart, and rather than worship at the altar of the almighty dollar they went back to making music for the sake of the music.

This isn't to say that Parallels is a complete sellout. There are good songs with solid riffing and drumming where you can tell they put some effort into the progressive side of the music. Overall though, it's not anywhere near where they came from nor would be headed to in the future. It was Jim's one big shot at the big time and it didn't pan out. With the exception of Disconnected, which was just that, everything else they've done since has been pretty good. Their latest offering (Darkness in a Different Light) is some of the heaviest stuff they've done since No Exit.
