With the exception of "Rikki Tikki Tavi" this is some excellent stuff.

"i understand the comparisons to dredg, but they're completely different. dredg doesn't perform heavy tracks like the ones present here... not anymore at least."

Upping to a 4, since it's growing on me. But seriously, it still sounds like Fair to Midland emulating Tool at a lot of points.

But I can't deny that it sounds good.

I keep thinking Tool + hints of SOAD +...a little bit of everything.
Beeing listening nonstop for days.

This and Fables are both in my top 5 of all time, seriously. Great stuff.

It's weird to have these modern bands be so schizophrenic these days.
This album is all over the god damn place.

They should pick a direction and go with it.
Otherwise they'll keep sounding like a weird mix of mars volta + dream theater + Coheed and Cambria.

huh... I don't hear a whole lot of Tool in this, except maybe in the unnecessary interlude tracks...

This really sounds nothing like Tool, not sure where you're getting that.

Plus Tool's song structures are not like FTM at all.

Was looking forward to this cd for a long time... but I was very disappointed the first 2 times around listening to this. The first 2 songs just kill me... they take forever to get started. This almost reminds me of the direction thrice went in with Vheissu, a departure from their identity into something more atmospheric sounding. I hope they break out of this, this band is too good to disappoint again.

From what I'm hearing, this CD sounds like it's most certainly worth getting.

the tool thing is in reference to the heavy riffs found in many parts of the songs being juxtaposed with the cleaner, vocal driven parts that often accompany them.

I can see it now that you put it that way.
