    I agree. Hence the reason I loose no sleep on his departure.


    Funny how the word on the net travels. I like MP, but there are better ways to be creative. One of which is not being control centric.

      I thought his other disc was really good.


      I actually thought his vocals were better than on his Dream Theater stuff, (and I have them all)..

      Good disc, indeed. Marco tore it up.

            I got the entire album today. So far so good. I am liking this better than the latest DT offerings. Also, I think it's better than the last LaBrie solo album. Definitely more metal.

              Sounds better than anything DT has done since Awake, pretty much.

                I never really minded james all that much, its the stupid ass lyrics they have him sing, along with the theater/circus music they compose.

                    Gave it a listen. I found it repetative after the first couple of songs and the guitar playing, while good, sounded very generic progressive metal to me. Also the guitar sounds like it's Line6 or something. Overly digital.

                      thank you.. Granted, the guy isn't wearing two tone haircolor, long hair, earings, no spandex, no cool "Heavy metal faces"... I can get past all that....... but to me, it sounded like a guy playing through a $50 zoom pedal with effects out the ass...

                      Beastly player though.... really smooth playing.

                        I actually don't like Awake at all. In fact I think all the albums before Metropolis Pt2. sucked. I love every album including and after Metropolis though. I seem to be in the minority in that regard though. I just don't like early DT at all

                          Mullmuzzler also had a meh guitar sound, but in the end, it`s the songs that make or break an album for me

                            I think he's got a great voice. He's no Geoff Tate or Warrel Dane but the dude is on pitch and has a good sense of melody.


                            Well as has been said, DT doesn't really give any indication of his sense of melody, due to it being dictated by the others. And pitch-wise... well, sometimes he's ok, sometimes he really isn't. Listen to Hollow Years on FII. I'm not sure he actually hits a single note that entire song. And that's in the studio.

                                Listened to the iTunes samples this morning. Will probably buy it if I can find it (I want a physical copy). Only thing I wasn't crazy about was the screaming/growling lyrics. Didn't even sound like James doing those parts.
