5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Greatest Unrecognized Bands ! June 17, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is the sequel to the intriguing story started in "Tyranny" but already started before in the mind of the band's lyricist and excellent bassist/backing singer/flautist Carl Cadden-James (some elements of the story could be found already in "Carved in Stone"). But it's by no mean a clone of "Tyranny". Beside similar musical references, this one contains maybe more instrumental parts and more varied atmospheres, a few references to Led Zeppelin's best works (Kashmir, for instance), more references to Pink Floyd and still the usual influences from the best Queen, Kansas, Iron Maiden or Rainbow and Yngwie Malmsteen, plus classical music. But in the end, it is their own and unique style! Although the band is composed only of virtuosos and excellent singers (Mike Baker being the perfect lead vocalist with the golden voice), the main focus in their music is melody and emotion before the instrumental prowesses - but lovers of great instrumental parts will find many varied and complex ones here!). Shadow Gallery represents the perfect balance between powerful guitar riffs, and symphonic rock with the best vocal works that can be heard today in any style ! Their incredible multi-layered vocal harmonies are matchless in the rock world and this album just proves this again. Incredible guitar and keyboard solos, tasteful piano and multi-layered guitar harmonies, unusual synthesizer textures, etc. They are fantastic arrangers. You can love them for their mellow side or their heavier side (both are equally represented) but one thing is sure : they've got a great sense of melody, harmony and counterpoint in everything they create and they also put their whole *heart* into their music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow... just wow... January 22, 2006
Format:Audio CD
That is how I felt when I first heard this album. I have to admit, this was my first introduction to Carl Cadden-James, Gary Wehrkamp and Shadow Gallery and I can safely say that I was not dissapointed at all. This is a gem of Progressive Rock/Metal and music in general.

There is one way to describe this album, beautiful. Listening to "Comfort Me" for the first time is like nothing you have experienced yet. Sure it is kind of weird when you can actually talk about DNA in a song, but everything just blends together so perfectly.

Buy this album if you are a fan of Prog Rock/Metal. You won't be in the least dissapointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars had missed this until now-my loss March 20, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Ok, I come in late on another review, but I have to way in. This is a great progressive rock album that strays in to prog metal territory at times. It is creative, inventive and a great listen. They seem to stay away from most prog formulas and just play their brand of music. They will go from hard to soft fast to slow and end somewhere in between. In one song. As most of you know the album is telling a story started on the last album and the music does a good job of conveying the emotion as well as adding to the overall sense of the story.

One reviewer said the lyrics were uninspired. I wonder what album they are listening to. And these are not power rock ballads as another said. (although you are entitled to your wrong opinion. ;) )This is SG's brand of power prog rock. I want to add I was reminded of Alan Parsons at times, and even a couple of the guitar solos reminded me of Gilmours Dark Side work. But mostly they have crafted a solid album that is interesting and a worthy addition to any music library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect! April 24, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Shadow Gallery has matured its style so much since its debut album. Its compositional and performance abilities have improved despite, or perhaps because of, its lack of live performances. Its distinctiveness, however, remains unchanged. No matter where you live in, no matter where you are, Shadow Gallery can be recognized from miles away. Room V has a great storyline, awesome vocal and instrumental melodies, wonderful harmonies, and sensational guest performances by A.A. Lucassen and Laura Jaeger. The highlight guest performance, however is James LaBrie's intervention on composing one of the songs, maybe the best one of the entire CD, "Torn". His experience in singing gave him the authority to share the vocal melody compositional credit, and his liberty from the Portnoy/Petrucci bondage seasoned the whole album in a way no other artist could've done.

The only "but" in this release is the departure of Chris Ingles as a full-time band member. The lack of sweetness in piano playing and energetic keyboard interpretation is sorely evident. Thankfully, he still collaborated in writing some of the songs.

A great progressive rock CD, not tainted by the excessive heavy-metal influence that has reached bands like Dream Theater and other great prog bands.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very satisfying prog-rock album October 20, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been listening to prog for 30 years now, starting with King Crimson, Genesis, ELP and Rush in the 70s, to Dream Theater, Opeth, Ice Age and Fates Warning in the 90s. Shadow Gallery have always been up there among the better bands for me, though I was disappointed with their Tyranny album. With Room V though, they've restored my faith in them with a doozy of an album, a real gem. Collected here my friends, is a bunch of stellar prog tunes that will rock you back on your heels. Like Dream Theater, SG manage to seamlessly blend light and shade, soft and loud and happy and menacing. If you liked Carved in Stone but with a slightly harder edge, this one's for you.
