I think both his rhythm and lead tones are better than they have been in awhile. It's like Vince or Angel finally helped JP dial in his own signature amp.Whoever thought these obnoxious circa-1980 camcorder "effects" were a good idea needs a kick in the balls.
Petrucci's rhythm tone is awesome here.
LaBrie sounds so much better on LTE songs though.I am so glad JP got rid of that frigging chorus he had going over everything. That tone was horrid. I just don't know how you go from SFAM mid 2000's live Petrucci tone to whatever ass that was.
James Labrie actually sounds really good on the Distance Over Time live album they just released. Better than he has sounded in years.
I didn't even know that album was out. I lost interest in DT after they went off the rails with too much Rudess and too much Stupid Songwriting.I'm surprised to hear you guys say that Petrucci's tone here is better because I thought it sounded tremendous on the last record.
You should give it at least one listen through. Best Mangini-Era album. He got to do his thing and everybody seemed to step it up a notch.I didn't even know that album was out. I lost interest in DT after they went off the rails with too much Rudess and too much Stupid Songwriting.
