Seriously. That right there = exactly my kind of music. I put off buying this one for awhile because his last one was kinda meh, and I wasn't a huge fan of Mulmuzzler. But this one takes the cake, maybe the best album released all year, and it sounds like LaBrie's singing for a band like Soilwork that plays 8-strings. Simply awesome.
Also, the vocal production is fantastic on this. It makes me think maybe when DT is in the studio, they rush him in at the end and don't mix him very well, because he sounds outstanding on this album.
My favorite song from the album has to be I Tried. I don't know how these guys do it, but back when Awake came out the lyrics dealt exactly with what I was dealing with at the time, not being sure about my faith. Now this album comes out, and has this song which talks about almost exactly my life situation right now. How odd and great at the same time.

Dream Theater without the overplaying. I could seriously get used to this
