Hates Richie Kotzen
The beginning vocal phrasing/inflection reminds me a ton of Operation: Mindcrime era Tate...
..which is of course awesome.
I love the first one "Infinity Divine" (on Facefront...with the original mix). It's more straighforward & 80's metal influenced (Structured like John Arch era Fates Warning, Crimson Glory, Lethal etc..).
Eh. I think they're a very talented band who write songs that are not particularly interesting. The songs are well constructed but soul-less to me. Live they're fun to watch, but that's it for me.... YMMV
Totally :agreed: with Matt on this one. My brother loves them. I just can't get into them. Just... can't.Eh. I think they're a very talented band who write songs that are not particularly interesting. The songs are well constructed but soul-less to me. Live they're fun to watch, but that's it for me....

Metropolis PtII and Train of Thought had some good songs on them. But otherwise, totally :agreed: yet againI'm not a fan of Dream Theatre past the first three discs either...
Enigmatic Calling is by far their best album, IMHO. It was the first one I got, and I ended up being disappointed by all the others. The first three songs on that album are essentially what Dream Theater *should* have been doing for the last 20 years. The rest of the album isn't quite at that same level, but it's a good listen.
And also the only kind of singing that actually works in metal. Baritone vocals get lost in the mix.Well, I just mean in general. I hate to say it, but lets be honest, falsetto and high pitched singing... kinda gay
