Threshold's 2001 album Hypothetical serves as their magnum opus, the album tht defines the band. Ever since the orgin of the band, they had slowly been drifting away from a keyboard led sound and by this album they had come to the perfect mix of guitar driven and keyboard driven music. The big difference is Threshold is much tamer, without the sky-high vocals and dueling keyboard/guitar lead lines. This is what seperates them and puts them above the generic list of power metal bands and makes them a relatively fresh band. The opening track Light And Space is a great combo meal of what Threshold is all about.

Overall, a solid album with the exception of Keep My Head. Threshold are not the musical masturbators that Dream Theater are, with just the right amount of technicality to be impressive but not pretentious, and the solos and songwriting on the album show it. Groom and West spit out some great solos throughout the album. Hypothetical might be a good place to start with the band for a taste of their style, but there are higher peaks in the Threshold discography. Still, it’s not to be missed for any fan.

Hypothetical is album of the month in Germany’s bigest megazine, Rockhard, and it’s easy to understand. Not one album that combines whiplash riffs with progressive elements and even catchy songs in this way comes to my mind. While the last record, Clone, was more straight ahead, Hypothetical has a bit of every Threshold release thrown into one big basket. The British seem more influenced by prog rock from the 70’s, while they also have a heavy metal foundation. It’s really no hypothesis that Threshold have released an album that just a few bands in this genre will top this year.
