2 stars After an excellent first album called "Office of Strategical Influence" from the ex-keyboardist of Dream Theater Kevin Moore, Jim Matheos from Fates Warning and Mike Portnoy from DT, I was very impressed. Great songs, harmonics and compositions. I bought the limited edition and also loved their remake of Pink Floyd succes : Set the Controls to the Earth of the Sun.

3 years later, "Free", the new album from Moore and Matheos is distributed and sold everywhere... why? I bought once more time the limited Edition thinking I would not regret it... ouch, what a mistake. A lot more monotone than their first album, OSI "Free" sound much more electronic and synthetic than "Office of Strategical Influence". The Kevin Moore vocal is stagnant, without variation, dull all the album long. The music composition follow this same way. "GO" and "Bigger Wave" are goods... but not awesome.

But I don't regret completly my cds... the bonus one sound more cool.

BTW, OSI "Free" is my worst bought I made from long time... for Collectos/Fans only
