4 stars I got this album when it first came out and it is still in my CD changer. It is one of my all time favorites. The compositions and performances are fantastic and the melodies are killer. Having worked with Matt Bradley in the past and knowing where he is coming from musically it is amazing to hear him in this context. He really stands up to the challenge of this genre and delivers his unique touch to the fold. His harmonies are always amazing and this record is no exception. The musicians on this album are extremley competent and turn in some amazing performances that are intelligent and multi dimentional. I understand that many compare them to DT however I hear them doing thier own thing and I applaud them for this album. Despite the Waves has the whole package, great vocal melodies and harmonies, killer riffs, and amazing solos. My only critique is the that I prefer a beefier drum sound. Jeremy is a flawless player I just think he got cheated in the drum production and mix. The guitar tones are full and Patrick's execution is great though a bit tame here and there. It would be cool to hear them improvise a bit more, but then again...this is prog!! Great album, I would love to hear a follow up!!
