This has as much appeal to me as LaBrie's solo stuff. I like his solo stuff, but I just never reach for it.



With that, Slightly Out Of Reach is my favorite song by LaBrie.

LaBrie's solo albums are actually pretty dope. He's a way better singer and vocalist when he can dictate his own sound and style. Especially his first record...Marco Sfogli on guitar was ridiculous at times (the solo in "Drained" comes to mind). One of the few guitars players I'd call better than Petrucci.

If I'm forming a band it's 100% Petrucci due to his songwriting ability yeah, but just watching someone solo and doodle....Sfogli. His phrasing and style is unbeatable. Watch him doing "Sunset Lights" on youtube, it's like the pinnacle of rock guitar playing to me. Pure class, melody, diversity of playing, some technicality, etc. etc

Better phrasing than Guthrie?

I think Guthrie and Steve Morse are probably the most complete guitarists I've seen

Sfogli is great no doubt. I had the privilege of literally sitting 3' away from him in a tiny but classy club on Long Island, when they were on tour for Elements Of Persuasion. He is an awesome dude as well, having had a non-formal meet and greet after the show.

Ray's vocals are just amazing. So warm... nostalgic...

"wait" is a great tune, some instrumentals are great, but I'd love to see some of this melodies and Ray mixed with Redemption again...

The type of album that's perfect to listen after a long, exhausting day. Warm yet melancholic songs and Ray's voice is still sounds so good after so many years.
