Out of all the Threshold albums that have been reviewed, "Extinct Instinct" seems to have been overlooked the most. Why? I consider this album to be the "hidden gem" in the Threshold archives. Damien Wilson came back to do the vocals for this album - and he did a stellar performance. There are alot of fans who will say that "Wounded Land" was better, but I disagree.

As good as WL was, this album is ten times better. The album is a perfect combination of "Phsycedelicatessen" and there debut. On

"Wounded Land" the guitars arn't as heavy. But on this one guitarists Karl Groom and Nick Midson are responsible for cranking out some heavy riffs. Damien's vocals are soaring, and

emotional. My favorite from this disc was "Eat the Unicorn". This has to be the most progresive Threshold song ever. It's heavy, it's melodic, and gives you a dark beutiful feeling inside. They completley just ignored the rules and went for it. That is what I love about this album, it just keeps suprising you. If any Threshold fan does not have this one yet - Extinct Instinct is a must. That's saying alot, because all of their albums contain some of the best music the prog world has to offer. I'm sorry if other fans don't feel the same way about this disc, but I just wanted to give it the attention that I thought it deserved.

This album marked Damian Wilson's second with the band and for me, it is the finest and most complete Threshold album in their history.

The album just has so many layers to it, long and short songs, compelling and deep lyrics and down tuned guitars with hard beating drums.

The album cover is also fascinating and speaks volumes as to how amazing it is. For anyone who has not heard Threshold (for which I see not many), this is the album to start with.

OK, I'm throwing this review out there after giving this just one listen, just to give that gut instinct reaction;

Extinct Instinct is tasty muscular prog and is perhaps one of those prog-tastic affairs you could (almost) listen to as a relaxing soundtrack while cruising down your nearest highway. In fact this seems to be almost the perfect environ for tunes such as the first track - Exposed - having as it does such a groove laden bass line that trundles along while the rest of the band adds their shade and colour. Elsewhere the band flexes it's heft with number such as Somatography and The Whispering, the latter replete with shouted background vocals that add an almost march like quality to proceedings.

Production is spot on and allows the mellower studio effects sections such as the opening to Lake of Despond to work their magic while at the same time the listener is continually presented with a full bodied bass tone that forms a fine basis for the many mid range guitar parts to shine. Everything is so darn synchro-meshed (if that's a word).

The vocals are an acquired taste I suppose though they are not so high as to aimed at your canine companion though for me they at times came across as a little yelpy and lacking body. Having said that they are in clear counterpoint to the rumbling tones the instruments are making which lends them definition.

And that's all I have to say about that....
