11:41 - Cynic Metalhead Screaming is right. i remember how rad it to see TBA infront of bands to know new album come out soon.
10:25 - PocketMetal I don't even remember it being on the right side, that must have been weird. :p
09:32 - ScreamingSteelUS The only change that ever really bothered me was moving the ShoutBox from the right side to the left side, and now I'm used to it. Now I'd be bothered if it were a different way.
09:15 - Cynic Metalhead i was part of old format of MS(usually be online as guest) and this new format os hell lot of better what MS was before.
09:11 - AngelofDeth personally I love this version of the site, also the news articles have gotten alot better
08:46 - Cynic Metalhead Too late MetalManiac. Too late...! Lot of people whine about it.
Another tough one. When you have seasoned veterans such as these two fellas from Fates Warning fame (not to mention a crack team of session musicians), you come to expect some kind of solid direction. Although this album does deliver it's fair share of brain melting riffs, it's something that also has a large tendency to fall into pointless, jumbled meandering - a problem more associated with younger prog acts who have not fully grasped the concept of a little tasteful subtlety.
This album is awesome. So much techy proggy stuff going on yet there are so many catchy riffs. John Arch's voice just soars over each song. Matheo's guitar work is phenomenal. Joey Vera's bass is solid and a great addition to the album. I am looking forward to hearing more from the band and their debut just came out.
I am so glad this album came out when it did, there weren't that many spectacular releases coming out in 2011, or at least they were all being overshadowed by the extremely shitty releases (Morbid Angel, Metallica/Lou Reed, and Queensrÿche, I'm looking right at you). There were great releases coming out that year, but I feel Sympathetic Resonance was the only truly incredible album to come out that year to outshine the horrible monstrosities that came out that summer. That's just me anyway. Amazing stuff.
