    Sounds good. As long as they don't do another sappy 'Sapphire' or 9/11 :ill: 'Parkers Eyes' it looks promising. I still lament that Redemption is essentially in sound like Fates Warning 2.0. But I guess that's not too bad since FW is excellent...

    Can't wait for this one. 'Fullness' was a flawless album, imo.

    Yep I agree. I love that album. I used to dislike Alders singing very much, but his vocal style on "The Fullness of Time" is simply fantastic! :worship:

    Aww come on Ken, it wasn't that bad. I actually thought some of those lyrics were kind of touching. Just admit you really liked it. It's okay to bring out the bitch in you once in a while.:lol:



    Completely agree.

    Don't like Alder's vocals? Man. The old stuff or the relatively newer stuff? Due to my love of his voice, it is hard for me to imagine anyone not liking his singing style.

    Fullness of Time is quite a good album with excellent songwriting and singing. I am highly excited at the prospect of another album.

    I was actually a little disappointed by Fullness. Adler seemed at times to be forcing his voice to suit the music tempo, which wasn't always successful.

    I like both albums. I never was a fan of Alder (and ergo FW) but I believed the Redemption album delivered, so I'm going for the third one too.

    I'd tend to agree with that. Van Dyke did all the writing so maybe if Ray could write the lyrics that might get fixed up a bit. Overall, though, it was one of my tops from last year.

    You'll soften a bit when you get older. :) I liked the song quite a bit just because of the perspective of the lyrics. It was an interesting take.

    the songwriting from the first album... plus Ray from the second... now that'd be something hot

    I can of course understand that. :) I remember how shocked I was when John Arch left Fates Warning. So when Alder stepped in he had to fill some big shoes, in my view anyway. My disliking him had two reasons:

    1) For me he could never replace John Arch

    2) When he sang with his high voice I could not bring myself to like it.

    Since then I started to like him a bit more especially when he stays within the lower regions of his voice. In fact one of the reasons why I liked "The Fullness of Time" so much was because of Alders vocal.

    FWX was a homerun to me. "Wish" alone could have sold me the album, but then there's every other track on it (sure sequence #7 is hardly a song... but that is 1 exception)

    I thought Ray was forcing it a bit as well when I first heard it. Personally, I'd rather Ray have less lyrics at hand when singing because he really could stretch out a three-word vocal phrase and make it sound heartbreakingly good.

    That's where I agree with what Wheezer said. I understand a really long Prog song as much as the next guy, but some of those lyrical stretches were really pushing it as far as 1 song goes.

    Still I thought it was a very good album overall, and I'm sure #2 will be even better.
