MIke gets a bad wrap in this part of town. He's plays for the song. Great player. New album (#3) is great as usual. Nice to see bands like this still do well in prog rock market. Hard gig!. Mike is in like 47 bands and that's a good thing.
I dug most of the first record, didn't care much for the second, but I'm digging this one.
That tune has a big Toto vibe to me. I also really dig Love Letter and Crawl- although I must admit, there's sometimes in that tune I just wish they didn't have sections between verses, but overall it's a banger.
Yeah, he gets shit on a bit, but his playing outside of DT was always more musical and felt a bit better in my opinion.
