On Level 2, Last Chance to Reason's mental capacity (their ability to reason, you might say) seems to have expanded to match their musical chops. The heavy metal band was already one cut above standard-issue metal, and here it continues to be, with the guitars sometimes diddling into Steve Vai territory and, in particular, keyboards that, with the stop-and-start rhythms, evoke the sound of prime-era Yes.
