  • If they started putting out more neo-classical material people would be whining they are trying to recapture old glory/rehashing old material. Basically they just can't satisfy everyone. I'm just glad that whatever they put out sounds damn good.
  • The way I look at it, they're still putting out solid albums.... Even if they aren't mindblowing masterpieces that's a pro I guess. Lot's of bands fall off much worse.
  • In my mind, I am tickled pink that Underworld is as good as it is. After the uneven Iconoclast, it feels like SX have gone back to basics; Underworld is a much more natural follow-up to Paradise Lost. Since The Odyssey, they have been gradually sculpting their neo-classical prog sound to fit within the boundaries of contemporary, hard-edged, American metal and this has proved to be a success with Underworld. I don't know what the future holds, and I doubt we'll ever get anything a la V: The New Mythology Suite, but I trust they will continue to morph and grow as a band.
  • A french review here : www.heavylaw.com/albums/115117/underworld-2/ 6/10
  • Yes. Solid new album, but better than Paradise Lost - which IMO is a modern classic - hell no.

  • "Legend" is truly awesome.
  • New album doesn't blow me away, but it's solid... I don't think we'll ever get a classic Symphony X album again, but at least we're getting solid albums... Still I yearn for another Odyssey, Divine Wings, Twilight :(
  • Really? Underworld, better than Paradise Lost? I think it's one of their weakest albums ever, personally. Yet it's still great, which should be some indication of how high Symphony X have set the bar.
  • Underworld blows last two albums out of the water. Very surprised.
