<SHEESH>.....

I wonder what 'progressive metal album of the year' he was talking about. The brand new Opeth album? He couldn't mean the latest Symphony X album...

On MP's forum there was a discussion about this, and these comments about him seem to be bogus. Or these were hugely taken out of context. He seemed to have wondered. With internet, these days rumors and gossip travels always faster than the truth. And that's not all. The truth sometimes is what no-one really is interested in...

I am quite sure MP tries to ignore this new album, so why would he made nasty comments? He probably even can't stand hearing it...

It's an album by his buddies ArchMatheos. Sympathetic Resonance.

So he promotes his " buddies' " new album and not mentioning the DT album....his REAL buddies for the last 25+ years.
I am going to check out that album though right now.

I think MP would be wise to make a few comments as possible about this, since even an innocent comment will be misconstrued.

How could MP saying that he loves the new album be misconstrued?

I don't know, but a lot of fans are so contentious that I'm sure they would find some way to misread what he said.

I would definitely recommend Arch Matheos. Probably my favorite release so far followed behind by DT. Keep in mind Fates Warning is probably my 3rd favorite band, but Jim Matheos is my favorite songwriter. This was an automatic buy for me and man, it rocks. Arch rocks on the vocals (although his voice is an acquired taste).

Asianhawk, please listen to some samples. I think you would like this one, if you can stand the vocals.

I listened to one of the 11 minute songs. Definitely kicks butt...! I will have to listen to more songs though!

I've listened to FW in the last months, I like some songs but don't like others... his vocals are nice, but I have some live songs that he is not ok... good band, indeed.

I FINALLY got my copy today before going in to start my shift at work.  I was checking the HMV in the mall every couple of days because of the Warner dispute, and today, the girl saw me and exclaimed "YOU'RE HERE!  IT'S HERE!  IT FINALLY CAME FOR YOU!"  and I was SUPER happy! 

I haven't had a chance to listen to the whole thing yet, but loving Build Me Up, Break Me Down, Breaking All Illusions, and yes....it's what I call the "Last Song Syndrome" that I have at just about EVERY FRIGGIN DT CD - the one where I am driven to use 1/2 box of kleenex because the lyrics on Beneath The Surface are so amazing and so heart wrenching at the same time. 

More later......thanks again DT.  You did it to me again......

It was well worth the wait!   Cheesy  I am very "old school" and I am the type that wants the solid product in my hands, lyric booklet, and all.   Wink

Amazing how diffrently people take the same things Smiley The lyrics are the last thing I look at when I get a CD on my hands. I mean, I can't help but check out the cover artwork, the inlay, but after I've read the lyrics I look at that and put it away and seldom look back at it again because the images I get in my head from the music always conflict with the artwork - and I don't say the artwork is bad, it's just that I see things differently.
The same thing with lyrics - it's important that I hear and grasp the words without reading them first. I may be weird, but the actual music and the booklet are stand-alone pieces to me.
