    "Feeling Free Again" is the most egregious example, but several of the early songs are hindered somewhat by his vocal delivery being goofy or awkward. I think that he got more confident and consistent as a vocalist from Open the Gates onward.

    The vocal style on "Divine Victim" is a much better take on his more upbeat vocal delivery from the earlier songs.

    Indeed. :lol:
    I'm not really a fan of that song in general.

    Then you have "The Veils of Negative Existence" which is one of his best performances imo.

    Mainly those who listen exclusively to metal because all other genres are inferior.

    You don't end up learning nearly enough about music for starters. You become a willfully ignorant, hollow toadie too afraid to pop his own bubble. Also, "superior" is subjective.

    Accelerated Evolution and Synchresta were clearly Devs best work, the latter being a good mix of serious and unserious work. Never could get into SYL.

    His latest album as DTP got me back into Devy's work. Highly recommended.

    I honestly think Mark's vocals were at his best in the earlier days of Road(athough I do agree Feeling Free Again is pretty damn goofy sounding, probably my least favorite early MR rocking track). Time Trap and Cage of Mirrors in particular are two of his best performances imo.

    Accelerated Evolution I can get behind as one of his best but definitely not Synchestra. It is a good album, but compared to Terria or Ocean Machine it just doesn't hold up.

    I don't care much for the latter two, but I can understand Synchestra being a more eclectic preference. I'll fight a bitch over AE.

    Nothing wrong with it if that's your taste, but even the most elitistic metalhead should find some non-metal he likes if he looks for it.

    Jacked guys are the epitome of metal.

    Please read the follow up comments before responding to a joke post. And it was pretty obvious too tbh.
