    Anyone else listened to this? I've got it running on Spotify at the moment.

    It's a really solid live album; I'm enjoying it even if I'm not as familiar with the songs as I might be.

    The new singer (who's probably been around for ages, I'm not really following them) is great. All the best bits from Barlow and Owens rolled into one.

    I still can't get into the new singer alot, think I just need to listen to the album more. I will give this a go, it will show his strong points better I think

    I've heard very little off him, but what I have heard I liked. I think he is as good as Jon could have hoped for as a new frontman, but I haven't gotten over Barlow leaving again enough to give them another go. I saw them on one of their final gigs with Barlow in 2011 and it was fucking amazing.

    You should listen. When he started I thought Barlow had changed his mind and stayed, until he got to the high pitched falsetto bits. He's perfect for Iced Earth.

    So after seeing them live a few weeks ago, I am now converted. Stu Block totally blew me away. Awesome live show, and the new album has some of the best material they have done since Something Wicked. I still haven't give the new live one a go yet, but I think he was a little stronger at the gig than he is on the album. I was pretty impressed, but then after giving Dystopia a proper spin I put Burnt Offerings on, and remembered just how good Barlow was/is. New guy is a perfect replacement, but you can't replace perfection!
