So, should I say "this sux cos i dont like prog its not trendy" or "awesome this will be the best cd ever"? In Sputnik, there is no golden mean. Well, but since it's cool not to like prog guys who've got at least some fame... No, heck. Color me interested. All of them are great musicians even though Portnoy can't really sing. :D This could be something very cool, though I prefer Gavin Harrison over Portnoy...

Not actually waiting eagerly, more like looking forward to. :O

Really looking forward to this aswell... even though I don't listen to Dream Theater so much anymore, Portnoy is undoubtedly a great drummer ( but yeah I agree...don't let him sing...). As for Wilson and Akerfeldt, well Porcupine Tree and Opeth are my top 2 bands so I'm quite eager to hear this... trying not to get my hopes up too high though...

@bloc: c'mon, you gotta admit that Steven Wilson w Mikhail Akerfeldt, PLUS Omar would be pretty interesting, even if it were crap! I'm actually not a fan of Opeth, Porcupine Tree, or Dream Theater, (they all have their moments) but still, this piques my interest.

Wilson? Genius. Akerfeldt? Metal god. And Portnoy just doesn't seem to fit in those pictures. [Portnoy] is fantastic, don't get me wrong, but don't put him in with Wilson and Akerfeldt. Their collaborations are bigger than Portnoy will ever be.

Three good members of three awesome bands collaborating does NOT an awesome project make. Supergroups fall flat more often than not...so I'll have to see where this goes (when it gets completed in 2032, that is).

Also, who the fuck is going to play bass?
