Par fifi59 1ER COMMENTATEUR DU HALL D'HONNEUR le 18 septembre 2004
Format: CD
Threshold est, selon moi, l'un des groupes majeurs du style Metal Prog. Il compose des morceaux dans lesquels, même si les musiciens sont excellents, on ne trouve pas de démonstrations techniques vaines, mais du rythme, des guitares Heavy, de superbes mélodies et la présence d'un formidable chanteur.
Les fans du groupe (dont je suis) ne trouveront pas de changement de cap dans cet album par rapport aux précédents, mais toujours ce Metal Prog typique du groupe, jamais ennuyeux, toujours de grande qualité et parfaitement produit.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A mature performance of emotion..5 stars and then some.. 3 décembre 2004
Par S. Peters - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
A few years ago when I first started to get into the genre of music called progressive metal, I did most of my searching on Amazon looking for anything new I could sink my ears into. Today I consider myself most fortunate for the discovery of several European bands in this realm, mainly Arena, Royal Hunt, and Threshold. The talent, composition, and emotional tones that these bands have created throughout the years have made me wonder why anyone even listens to American radio anymore, where talent and a musical journey is second to image, money, and performers who choose to 'mystify' us with horrible voices and rhythms.
Threshold caught my attention immediately with their 'Hypothetical' album, full of unique lyrics and haunting melodies..And those vocals..
The experience of listening to this was like a wonderful discovery and enlightenment, so I continued my search for more of their material. I was hesitant at first to pick up "Subsurface" as some of the reviews did not overly excite me. However, when I downloaded "Mission Profile" off of their website, I found it difficult picking my jaw up from the floor. You can sense the maturity Threshold has reached with this release, and I believe it will be very difficult for them to make a better sounding record past this one.
Nowhere have I heard more intelligent lyrics, heartfelt singing, and immense and full instrumentation and compositions. Richard West's keyboards are more prominent and diversified than on previous releases, and this is a wonderful compliment as the listener is transported through each track willfully. Karl Groom's guitars soar (yes, each note means something in these songs, is never out of place, and belongs there to be there..not trying to impress us with a million notes in less than 10 seconds.. hmm, Dream Theater?) Another thing that continues to impress me about this band is that they are not overly preachy as many bands in this genre are, and you find yourself analyzing the lyrics and being pleased with their complexity. There is no filler on this remarkable album and favorites, well, I would have to say the grandiose, epic "Mission Profile" (which has an amazing chorus), "Opium" (a very interesting song with strong melodic structure), "Pressure" and "The Destruction of Words" (both very powerful and self-explanatory pieces of music). Again, the lyrics to all of these songs are very mysterious but definite, taking a position on many issues occurring in our world today, the declining relationships of the United States with other countries, the lack of communication amongst each other as humans, and the future of our world in general.
Thank you Threshold for letting us know that there is still someone out there that cares about letting others know what meaningful and emotional music actually is.. the songs that play in your head throughout your day, transporting you into journeys that you sometimes cannot take physically, and words that convey reality, perserverance, hope and the common bond we all share..

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Has Its Moments... 25 mars 2005
Par Mike - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Threshold is a band from England that offers a unique take on the progressive metal genre. There is no power metal influence as there is on so many progressive metal albums these days. That means no lame fantasy lyrics either, which is awesome. The lyrics are mostly comments on society, which bring up good points about issues like political correctness. Not that this hasn't been done before, but it sounds so much better than, well, the "cheese" of some bands.
The album starts out with "Mission Profile." This is THE perfect progressive metal song and includes everything that a song from the genre should have. Beautiful, yet catchy vocals by singer Mac. Crunchy rhythm guitar with several good aggressive riffs. Keyboards that are tasteful and not overdone. The guitar solo could have been better, but this song is so good I don't care. Excellent drums and bass. Bands like Fates Warning should use this song for inspiration to get back on track to the greatness of their earlier days. Next comes "Ground Control," which has another powerful riff. The guitar solo here is much better as well. The chorus isn't as good here, but the rest of the song is amazing. "Pressure" has all of the good things mentioned for "Mission Profile," but to a smaller degree. This is also a worthwhile song. As for the rest of the album, there are a few by-the-numbers rockers, an 10 minute plus epic, and several songs that couldn't even be classified as progressive rock. It is better described as "art-rock" which is basically progressive-rock lite. This in and of itself is not a bad thing, but the vocals are overdone. The guitar is still there, but it doesn't have much of an impact. The epic is decent, but not good enough to keep my attention for the entire length of it. It's a shame that the rest of the tracks were so poor, because if the album had continued in the vein of the first three songs I mentioned, this could have been the greatest progessive-metal album of all time.
One thing that I won't complain about though is the produciton. Here, it is clear and perfect. All of the instruments sound great, as do Mac's vocals. Included on the special edition is a screensaver as well as a music video for "Pressure." The video isn't that good though, because while it is cool to see the band in action, the video is actually the radio edit, so the guitar solo is mostly gone. Still, fans of true progressive metal should pick this up, as opposed to prog-metal that is guitar and keyboard geniuses displaying endless solos. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy that stuff somewhat too, but threshold provides a refreshing take on the genre that should be enjoyable even to heavy metal and progressive rock fans as well.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A wonderful record.... These guys smoke 27 août 2004
Par Nanohead - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
A great collection as a follow up to Critical Mass. Wonderful melodies, driving passages, amazing vocals by Mac, and just a super album.

To my ears, a great balance of metal, rock, progressive and orchestral influences, perfect keyboards, tasteful guitars from 2 great players, and super writing. Threshold is better than ever.

Each song is a festival, multi layered, and each listen reveals something new.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Simply Superb ! 2 octobre 2004
Par miko - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Threshold have achieved what I would have considered impossible after their last two outstanding releases: they exceeded themselves yet again!

Music so perfect and intense... it almost hurts.

These guys just never let you down when it comes to powerful melodies, catchy choruses, brilliant -yet never overboarding- musicianship, meaningful and thought-inspiring lyrics all interwoven into one great masterpiece of music. Divine!

They rock like Rush, master like Dream Theater, space like Floyd and yet create their own magical soundscape world that makes them stand out from other bands like a beacon in the night.

Something truly special & refreshing.

Highlight of the year 2004!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Easily One of Threshold's Best 6 août 2004
Par The Ever Present Matt - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
All I can say from first listen to Threshold's Subsurface is that these guys have mastered the formulaic sound that's going to bring them from the subsurface to the mainstream of progressive metal powerhouse bands to be reckoned with!! Having wisely released a full mp3 of the album-opening epic "Mission Profile" (available for download at their website - [...] ) shortly before the 8/3 release of the album, they opened quite a few eyes to those unfamiliar with the band and provided somewhat of a preview of what to expect from the album. Upon listening to the whole thing, many of the themes carry throughout. There is definitely a heavier emphasis on harmonized vocals than on previous albums, heavy riffs so tasty they melt in your mouth, and lyrically, a thought-provoking, yet generally scathingly pessimistic view of the deterioration of society in general, the promulgation of freedom globally and starting problems "we can never end."

Bassist Steve Anderson, introduced as the hired gun for a burnt-out John Jeary on the Critical Energy DVD, has become the latest permanent member of the band with this album, adding creed to the phenomenal drumming of Johanne James, one of the most underrated drummers on the prog scene. The dual guitar assault of Karl Groom and Nick Midson sound as stunningly riffilicious as ever as do the majestic keyboards of Richard West and Andrew "Mac" MacDermott majestically furthers his reputation as one of the most melodic and recognizable voices in modern prog.

I highly recommend the special edition, which is loaded with extras for Thresh-heads. It includes the phenomenal Johanne James-penned bonus track "What About Me" as well as PC multimedia extras which include a video for the first single, "Pressure," and a link to a special section of their website where you can download the radio edit of "Pressure" as well as checking out pictures from the video shoot and the equipment each member used to make the album.

Musically, this is easily their best album since Hypothetical, which is my personal favorite and highly recommended for those who want to hear their more "balls & chunk" oriented material. While Subsurface is definitely heavier overall than their last studio album, Critical Mass, they don't quite reach the overall heaviness and groove of Hypothetical, but as mentioned previously, they have a heavier emphasis on vocal harmonization than on any other album and believe me, there are enough stellar riffs throughout to satisfy the metalhead in any listener, especially on "Mission Profile," "The Art of Reason," "Pressure," and "Opium."

While the band has not radically changed their musical style very much since the addition of Mac on vocals with the Clone album, they certainly have their own unique individual style and they've continued to tweak the elements that they do best (harmony and hooks) with every subsequent album and that perfection truly shines throughout this album. Subsurface is already easily among my top two picks for 2004. Whether new to the band or a longtime Thresh-head, this album is an absolute must have if you're seeking a band that persistently furthers its reputation as one of the top melodic prog metal bands on the planet. If you find yourself hooked, spread the word. These guys are one of the best kept secrets on the modern prog scene and more than deserve to be discovered by a wider audience!!
