mention it. The crazy thing is, looking at the cover, it looks like it
should be completely terrible, but it is actually really good. If I
recall correctly, this ended up at WRUR during the brief period when I
had a radio show in Rochester, and I picked it up when they pitched it.<<I don't remember exactly where I found out about this guy. I think he has quite a few albums out but this is the only one I own. I agree the cover is not really indicative of what is inside.

some point (shouldn't be hard), as I do enjoy what I've heard of this.
Acts like Evanescence, System of a Down and Mars Volta having commercial
success gives me hope for the future.<<Yes, this album is all over the place used. They have a new one out, but I don't have it. I like what I have heard from it however. I'll be getting to both System and Mars Volta later in my reviews.
This is probably my single favorite Fates Warning album. Absolutely> 287. FATES WARNING – DISCONNECTED – 2000
marvellous use of mood throughout, some really great playing from
everyone involved, and Ray Alder's voice is in great form. Reminiscent
of Queensryche' s "Promised Land", and not just because that one also has
