Paradigm Shift kicks off this concept album in fine style, setting the stage with the fourteen-and-a-half minute epic, “A Revolutionary Cure.” After an atmospheric opening of sound effects and political commentary regarding the ugliness of “slavery” and the vital “fight for freedom,” the listener is treated to a highly diverse and occasionally intense foray into the world of Prog-Rock. Several melodic verses and a bridge (featuring pleasant lead vocals with enjoyable harmonies) eventually give way to equally melodic instrumental passages, many of them quite intricate and showcasing the full scope of the band’s potential. The final vocal section, with some grand orchestration, is where the epic feel truly comes into play until a final “jazz-heavy” section brings the song directly into the next track, “An Easy Lie.”
