4 stars Been very excited knowing that OSI was releasing another album real soon. and once it got into stores i was able to get it right away not to mention it was on sale. My overal feelings about his album that it is just as good as the first album. FREE has a little complexity than the debut album but it is a little bit heavier, tighter, and also more experimental than the debut album which means this is gonna be good. I guess you can say that this band main members are both JIM and KEVIN since the cd says that guest appearances are made by MIKE PORTNOY and JOEY VERA. But who cares as this album really displays some great experimental stuff here. Kevin Moore once again shows off his more Chroma Key like loops in each track he even displays some songs along with Jim where its just some nice experimental stuff with lyrics. Jim once again shows us why he is such a great metal player as the riffs are very heavy especially in the first two tracks. Mike Portnoy once again displays his talents but not only going over the top a little bit in some songs but displaying more tightness into the group with his more groovy side. Joey Vera makes his prescence known as the bassist from Fates Warning really does a great job infact i would say he does better in this album than Sean Malone. Anyway the songs are heavy, psychedelic, and sometimes just crazy weird but in a good way lol. So once again if you like progressive experimental metal well just go and get this album trust me its worth it.
