Much like the first Mullmuzzler album, this is a good record, and definitely worth getting if you're a Dream Theater fan, but there isn't much here to truly get me excited if it didn't feature James LaBrie on vocals.
Some of the songs are really good though, such as 'Venice Burning', 'Stranger', 'Save Me' and 'Tell Me'. On the other hand, some of them are rather boring and sound like typical LaBrie Soft Rock songs.
The musicianship is pretty good, and there are some good, solid, Progressive Metal moments here. But don't expect to be blown away by countless guitar/keyboard duels.
Not much else to say really. Good album, worth getting if you like Dream Theater or Prog Metal, but don't pay too much for it or else you might be slightly disappointed.
