Yeah, "Game of Thrones" immediately came to mind when I looked at that site. That certainly explains it, then.

My dad did. I know he used to play a couple of their songs here and there around the house when I was little, but I can't remember offhand which ones (pretty sure that "21st Century" song was among them, though).

Well I'm glad somebody's applauding on this because I sure as shit aren't. But I can't stop laughing. Oh man, the bad synths.

I was just looking at the Wikipedia page for this album and:

In August, James LaBrie began recording vocals. Singing as multiple characters, he took it upon himself to create unique interpretations of each one, with Petrucci offering him sporadic advice and feedback.

Clearly that advice and feedback SUCKED.

Oh shut the fuck up you tired old men. Stop with the thinly veiled curmudgeoning.

I'm not sure what it says that When Your Time Has Come is actually the best song so far. It feels like there's a hint of feelin- oh wait just as I type that, it's time for Petrucci to do another pointlessly masturbatory solo.

I need another beer.

I like that it was only "sporadic" advice, like he couldn't be fucked to stick around long enough to significantly contribute.

How can one give advice AND shred incessantly?

It kind of reminds me of an attempt to make Sims characters in a way.
