Fates Warning has been a hugely underrated band from the start, always pushing the music further along without alienating core fans. With regard to Disconnected, Fates have crafted one of the catchiest albums in their catalog. You won't find ripping solos or blazing guitar work a la Steve Vai. What sets this album apart are the construction of the songs. One of the songs is even 14 minutes long, yet, when its over, you don't realize you just sat through the whole thing because it flows so well. Same can be said for all of the songs here. The beauty here is that these songs were written with, it seems, a beginning, a middle and an ending. No rush to get to a poppy chorus to get radio play. Some of the songs build slowly, like a giant awakening from slumber and rip in the middle and close out slow. The first track, One, is an obvious stage opening rocker to get the crowd pumped. So, is a midtempo track. Pieces of Me delivers some fast intensity. Something from Nothing and Still Remains close out the album brilliantly. If you ever had liked Fates Warning at any point during your headbanging, pick this one up and listen to it. You won't hear a throwaway part and will catch yourself listening to this one more and more as time goes on. Shame that bands can craft songs/albums like this nowadays.......................
