Remember when Tori Amos gave us an album done with her daughter and claimed it was her best one yet? No? Of course you don't remember, you didn't buy it. Remember when Sting toured with his son as his first act? No? Of course, nobody gave a rabbit's fart. Remember when Will Smith shoved us is son Jaden claiming he's the next big thing? No? Of course, you have better things to do than watch After Earth.

Well Mike Portnoy's son highjacked his father's kit from Awake, made a band and had Daddy produce it. You guessed it, it's not good. Soloing on and on and on does not make a song, screaming your tonsils out does not make singing and ripping off your dad's band ideas does not make an album. Everything you heard in here has been done 30 years ago, when it was innovative and fresh. It's not fresh anymore.

Boring and insipid, or maybe too inspired by daddy's work?

Don't pretend being Tom Hanks when you're Colin. People can see the diff'.
