Hi, I can show my face in public again. I love the snippets of the new album. :)

Oh yes, it sounds fabulous. I like aggressive prog rock and this sounds like a big diet of great.

The South Side is instantly enchanting. Massive thumbs up for doing a creative cover of a song, and perhaps for avoiding the Shadow Gallery(?) metal version on 'Yesterdays'.

Jon Anderson fits Glass Hammer like a glass slipper. Nothing quite sounds like prog with JA singing. :)

What is Matt Mendians doing on Ember 3? Good grief, the man thinks he's Raymond Herrera. Go Matt!

Huzzah!

You will love it!!!!Matt is incredible on the whole thing. Very bombastic at times, jazzy at times, just all over the place! The only compliant I have about Jon's parts on the album:there's not enough of him!!!But his arrangments-all that he sings-He wrote-and it does fit the music to a T!Amazing!

Whoa, whoa! Matt plays Jazz styled parts on this album!? Crap, I left him a comment on his myspace asking him if he could play some jazz parts on the next album. He was so nice about it though. I feel really bad now. :(

Ii's jazzy to me, and very tasteful-some of his best work, just like Shreddy's more jazzy and more subtle moments are more effective than most of hi shreddying-as good as it is!

I didn't hear a lot of guitar work on the samples, but then again I'm sure it's only a taste of what's to come.
And now for something completly different
