5 stars So there I was, in Seattle on September 15th 2009.

It was a special day. Why? Because it would be the official release date of my favorite band's new album and they would start their INCIDENT tour in Seattle that very same day in The Moore Theatre at 1932 3rd Ave. I had never heard the album until that day. This would be a great environment to absorb it for the very first time. The first riffs of the album already gave me goose bumps. What an energetic band and what a great album. After September 15th this album would only continue to keep growing on me !

So after I got back home in The Netherlands the Special Edition of The Incident had arrived and I was eager to listen to it again, again and again. Now I could also hear the 5.1 remix of the album on the DVD-A. And even better: I would go see them again on October 12th in the Heineken Music Hall. I went there with my wife and some very close friends and wow, it sounded even better than one month before in The Moore Theatre! The set list was pretty much the same, but I didn't care. This was awesome and even my wife, who's not really into progressive rock like I am, was enjoying herself a lot ! All great stuff and wow, I can't simply describe how much I enjoy that great guitar solo on "I Drive The Hearse". That's just awesome !

And now what? I'm waiting for December 2nd and I will drive to Cologne with a very good friend then in order to see their show once more in Palladium. Can't wait. I'm exited already ! Maybe you guys should read some other reviews on this album as well, because this one was written by one of their biggest fans and I simply think this is one of their very best albums, because it has so much variety on it. Maybe you have to be a fan in order to like it so much as I do, but who cares, I can only rate it the full 5 stars. Sorry guys ! ;-)
