All About Jazz Neutral[2]

Mark Sabbatini at All About Jazz gave Suspended Animation a mixed review, initially criticizing some songs as sounding like "what feels like a market-driven formula for success." He nonetheless noted "Animate-Inanimate" as a highlight, while praising Petrucci's guitar tone, which he described as "clear and distinct even during moments of high-speed indulgence" and setting him apart from his contemporaries.[2]
