I have been a big fan of Dream Theater for some time and more recently a big fan of some of Queensryche’s work. I have discovered Fates Warning recently too. Perfect Symmetry is less accessible than Dream Theater or Queensryche, but is definitely in the essential masterpiece category. The music of Perfect Symmetry is a fascinating fusion of Ray Alder’s sometimes power metal voice, Mark Zonder’s singularly impressive drumming style matched seamlessly by Joe DiBiase’s bass playing, the twin metal guitars of Jim Matheos and Frank Aresti, and some fine classical sounding violin and keyboard (Kevin Moore – at that time of Dream Theater) passages.
