Matheos just had the most killer Mesa Mark tone on Parallels. Such a pretty over-processed album. I love it.
:agreed: Until I saw the documentary that's on the Parallels reissue. I've always assumed that there was a lot of dejection in the Fates camp around that time; because they were watching Dream Theater's career beginning to take off with a major label while they were reaching an apex in their career. But to have A&R support pulled while in the middle of a tour is a pretty hard blow.As much as I like the follow up, Inside Out, it's sad to see how the production had slipped so much from Parallels. It's like I could just feel the band deflating before my eyes.
