Review: Between the Buried and Me - The Parallax ll: Future Sequence
Rated:3/5

With this, the full-length follow-up to its 2011 EP, The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues, the North Carolina progressive-metal quintet crafts a 72-minute concept album that includes some of its freshest material yet, but also some of its dullest. “Lay Your Ghosts to Rest” is an epic piece that showcases the band’s trademark sonic diversity, and concludes with an unforgettable outro. Nevertheless, much of the heavy material on the album sounds like a less-than-inspired rehash of the group’s previous work. The gems often lie in lighter moments like “The Black Box,” but progressive-metal fans will still appreciate the daring scope of The Parallax II. DAVID McKENNA
