You can't stand Luminol? Man, I had to stop everything I was doing - and I was in a serious hurry - the
first time I pushed play, just to listen to this extreme intro. I mean, what's it, 4 minutes in the song
before lyrics start? Wouldn't guess, I always thought it was a minute or two! Love this track. Also, every
song has smth distinctive to offer, Luminol: Jazz fusion, Driving Home: Epic rock solo, Watchmaker:
excellent intro, lyrics,mellotron etc. , The Pin Drop : Do I even have to remind you the sax on this?, The
Raven...: fuck, don't make me cry Steve.

@Torontonian yeah, it happens to me too sometimes, some albums can kind of lose their magic over time

I'm not as big on luminol as everyone else is. It's my least favorite of the "epics" and I also like the title track more.

Was digging quite a bit of PT lately and I'm still at odds with why he does solo shit.

@fallenbird Luminol is definitely not the best track on here, but it works brilliantly as an opener imo

@Wizard Musical differencies. Some want jazz, others want rock or metal. At least that's what I know.

i really loved the instrumentals from this, but I really didn't dig Steven's vocals too much on a lot of tracks. i mean they're
okay, but some of the lyrics were eh and those "haaaaah uuuuuh"'s in "Holy Drinker" come off as cheesy. at least that's my
opinion though.

also, Artuma i love your avatar. Amy Pond

hey rowan. i like your avatar too by the way, Waynes World movies are classics. but i dont know, vocals were at times fun though. even the cheesy ones are kind of fun to sing a long to. Like the one you mentioned from Luminol and I even do the "haaaa uuuuhs" from holy drinker too sometimes.

i dont mean to sound like im complaining about the vocals/lyrics or anything, you really come to the album for the instrumentals and the vocals work most of the time i guess. idk im tired and rambling.

dude I'm so sorry that sounds like the perfect girl
@Sgt Yeah Wayne's World is the best ever! Yeah this isn't a vocally based album but they're still a flaw sometimes
