    The hardest song on FII for me is actually Just Let Me Breathe. The unison on that is insane. Everything else is fairly easy.

    Sounds interesting, but not really feeling the teaser.

    Teaser for easy:


    Honestly, sounds pretty good to me. Jeff Scott Soto has definitely lowered his range over the years, but I'm curious to hear this.

    @Mosh ,

    You find or receive any information about the presale in Denver for tomorrow yet? I have nada for Houston presale tomorrow. Ticketmaster does not even list the show. Normally Live Nation sends me presale info ahead of time but not for this one. The auditorium website shows the presale is tomorrow, but is this a presale only for official DT fan club members?

    I logged into Live Nation via the mobile app last week and got 12th row Myung's side for the Chicago show. They didn't send me a password or anything, it was just because I have the app.

    Live Nation is not even showing the Houston date. Guess it must be sold through the auditorium. Just have to click buy Presale tomorrow @10:00 on the soundrink website and see what happens.

    Sons Of Apollo: Soto and Sherinian are great, don't really know Ron Thal, mixed feelings about Sheehan. Portnoy is awesome of course. Too much wankery in the vid imo, but seems like big competition for DT.

    Everything sounded pretty cool so far. I'll buy it.

    That was way more DT-esque than I expected.

    At 10:00 tried to buy tix through band website which links to Bands in town app which links to sound link but still said "presale coming soon" even after 10:00! So i did a quick google search and found Ticket Fly had a link to the show but it was a dead link. Then I tried Event Tickets and bought the two cheapest tix. They were $85 face value each but after the fees went up to $120 each! Ought to be a law against that many fees... At least I got tix and am finally seeing the first DT show in Houston in six years! Long wait until December...

    Last time they played Houston (six years ago) DT played a place that seats 3,500. Now this time they are playing a 70 year old college auditorium that only seats 1500. WTF?!

    I'm not up to date with Soto. But if they're starting to play DT material live... Can he sing, say, Metropolis or Change of Seasons?

    It seemed that it was Ron Thal who was a bit less in line than the others (the emotion probably)... that says a lot about the level of this band:

    Yea he's mentioned that a few times. I have two problems with it:

    1: John's 7 string work hasn't been that innovative since maybe Six Degrees. He could do more interesting things with chords, different tunings (and I don't mean just tuning everything down like on Illumination Theory), maybe changing the arrangement of the instruments around like having John Myung play in an upper register. But the way things are, it's going to make the DT sound muddier and make Myung even more useless in the band. I'd love to be proven wrong though.

    2: I won't be able to learn the new DT album on guitar.

    So a guy named Jr who says he works for Reserve One called me to say the Houston date of the upcoming DT tour, the last date of the tour, has been cancelled. I half expected this to happen when i saw it was the last date. Same thing happened on King Diamond's last tour.

    Anyway he said it was decided that 2 shows in Texas was enough and that i could get a refund or they would mail me tix to 1 of the other Texas dates. I chose Dallas, which is now the last date of the tour. He immediately emailed me a receipt for the new tix.

    Went to DT website and Houston is no longer listed.

    Turns out this is going to be a much better deal. The Houston show was going to be in a 45 year old college auditorium on a Sunday night (a school night for my son when I would prefer he not be out late). Instead we will be seeing DT on a Saturday night in a brand new state of the art place surrounded by a new shopping and restaurant center:
