2 stars Actually, there is nothing wrong with this album. The music is great, the production is excellent, the compositions are amazing. Ron Jarzombek is absolutely the genius mastermind behind Spastic Ink. So, why I put 2 stars to this CD? (Actually, 2.5 stars...) It's because of Mr. JASON McMASTER - the vocalist! Damn! His singing is so awful! It hurts my ears. Even the genius Daniel Gildenlow can't save the album in "Melissa's Friend". Jason was used to be the vocalist of Bonham - Jason Bonham's hard rock/hair metal/pop metal band in late 80's (yes, Jason Bonham - the great John Bonham's dearest son. By the way, you can see his performance as the drummer in the great rock movie "Rock Star"). From hair metal band lead vocal and then becomes the lead vocal of this brilliant unique prog metal band? I don't think so... Mr. Jarzombek, I think you should go find new vocalist for your project. Too bad this incredible album spoiled by McMaster.
