Michael Romeo – War of the Worlds, Pt. II Review

After hearing the first album a few years ago, I was excited to see what Michael Romeo would up with for a sequel, and now after hearing War of the Worlds Pt. 2, I can say it manages to be equally as entertaining as its predecessor. I do think those more cinematic instrumental tracks drag a bit and halt some of the momentum, but otherwise, this is a fantastic album with plenty of crunchy riffs, epic shredding solos, fantastic vocals, and an excellent mix of prog and power metal, as expected from one of the best guitarists in the genre. Whether he does more solo work or finally gets back together with his main band, I’ll always be excited to hear whatever Romeo has in store for his fans in the future!
