BLOODY HAMMERS, the band revolving around the charismatic mastermind Anders Manga
If Impermanent Resonance and Elements of Persuasion are going to echo each other, then it looks like the new s/t Dream Theater album is going to be incredible as well. And like back then it will be a win-win situation for we the fans. That my friend is great news! I’m glad James Labrie is still able to put out top notch music and perform at the level he is these days. His voice truly is a gift and his music is more than deserving of many accolades. Do yourself a favor and get this album. I’m already looking forward to listening to it again.
My only complaint about the album is that Tony Harnell didn’t sing it all. Much respect to Mr. Mills, but he simply doesn’t have that level of abilities. It’s made very evident when he sings “Everyone’s A Star.” I’m so glad to have, more or less, the version of TNT that I have loved for so long back together. Now for some new music and hopefully making the dream come of actually getting to see them live finally, that would make me very happy. I’m not typically a fan of live albums save for certain ones. 30th Anniversary 1982-2012 is a wonderful celebration of such an amazing band that is far more deserving of acknowledgment and respect in this business than they get on this side of the globe that it’s worth a spin. Even with my issues with it I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this album.
