I have been a big fan for 15 years.
They are technically proficient and have migrated to a more experimental feel over the last few albums, but create a heightened sense of drama, with mature themes.
You will not find any anthems here. Just some musicians willing to "soul search" and take us a long for the ride.
Ray Alder is exceptional and breaking boundaries of the mundane in vocals. He has a great flair for creating haunting melodies (with hook), while breaking down the general rules of rythmic structure on vocals.
Jim Matheos is sincere and willing to push the envelope, but always has the larger sense of the composition in mind.
Mark Zonder is quite simply a technically great drummer, with a wholey unique style.
This is not even close to one of their best pieces of work, but it does not have to be. It is still an excellent representation of what they offer. It is a self exploration that Fates Warning portrays perfectly in their own style. Like I said... you either get it or you don't... Ask Dream Theater if FW are great, I think you would be surprised at their answer.Fates Warning A Pleasant Shade of GrayFleetwood Mac Greatest Hits (Warner Bros)Fuel (USA-KY) Something Like HumanHeart Greatest Hits LiveIron Maiden The Number of the BeastKansas The Best of KansasLeatherwolf Leatherwolf (1987)Ozzy Osbourne Blizzard of OzzOzzy Osbourne Bark at the MoonOzzy Osbourne Speak of the DevilPearl Jam TenSavatage Edge Of ThornsSavatage Handful of RainSkid Row Slave to the GrindSoundgarden SuperunknownStone Temple Pilots CoreTool 10,000 DaysTori Amos Scarlet's WalkTriumph Never SurrenderTriumph Classics3.0 goodAnthrax Spreading the DiseaseAnthrax Among the LivingCold 13 Ways to Bleed On StageGodsmack GodsmackGodsmack AwakeGodsmack FacelessIron Maiden PowerslaveJudas Priest Point of EntryMetallica Kill 'Em AllMetallica The $5.98 E.P.: Garage Days Re-RevisitedPantera Cowboys from HellPantera Far Beyond DrivenPink Floyd The Dark Side of the MoonQueensryche Promised LandQueensryche Greatest HitsRush SignalsSoundgarden BadmotorfingerTantric After We GoTesla The Great Radio ControversyTesla Five Man Acoustical JamTool AenimaTriumph Allied ForcesYngwie Malmsteen Trilogy2.5 averageCold Year Of The SpiderDream Theater When Dream and Day UniteDream Theater OctavariumDream Theater Systematic ChaosIron Maiden Somewhere in TimeJudas Priest British SteelJudas Priest Sad Wings of DestinyJudas Priest Living After MidnightMetallica ...And Justice for AllNirvana NevermindOzzy Osbourne The Ultimate SinTesla Psychotic SupperYngwie Malmsteen Odyssey2.0 poorAnthrax State of EuphoriaGuns N' Roses Appetite for DestructionIron Maiden Iron MaidenIron Maiden KillersJudas Priest Killing MachineJudas Priest Rocka RollaKing Diamond AbigailKing's X Gretchen Goes to NebraskaKing's X Ear CandyQueensryche Hear in the Now FrontierRush Fly by NightRush Grace Under PressureSavatage Dead Winter DeadSkid Row Skid RowSkid Row Subhuman RaceWhite Zombie Astro Creep: 20001.0 awfulMy Chemical Romance The Black Parade
