Fates Warning’s Perfect Symmetry was my first experience in exploring Fates Warning music. At that time, I couldn’t enjoy the beauty and complexity of their music. It was around 13-14 years ago when I was in the high school and music to me –at that time—meaning only fast and loud music. A couple of years ago I started re-collecting my Fates Warning collections and recently I got the cd version of this album. It stunned me the first time I (re)heard the whole 8 songs. To be honest, the only song that got into was only “Through Different Eyes” because it was the most radio-friendly track from this album. Now I can appreciate other songs as well. “Part of The Machine” is a beautiful opening song, while “At Fate’s Hands” and “Nothing Left To Say” are my all-time FW’s songs. Complex compositions and sometimes you find it dark and cold, this album is definitely a great progressive rock album. Of course, it took several careful listening before being able to appreciate it. I did.
