Black Clouds and Silver Linings. Anyone else get it? Just picked it up and I am about half way though it. So far it's fucking awesome! Might be my new favorite album by them.

I still hate the vocalist and Mike Porknoy with the passion of a thousand burning suns.

Ooh, how quaint. A progressive metal band with the blandest music ever. Where's !T.O.O.H.! when we need them?

Yeah I listened to it a couple months ago. It's pretty sweet.

@mikemosha90: He's an annoying, egotistical douche. I don't like him, not to mention his playing is at the level of a 3rd grader, hardly what I would call good.

I agree with everything except the last thing. I enjoy his playing.

Bought the album yesterday, although it's not good as their old ones, I'm still loving it.

Pic of John Petrucci that I took at the concert, 2007 Toronto... good times.

I agree it's not their best, but I like it. The first two tracks have some pretty heavy moments in them which are great. And Jordan and John's playing are top notch as always. And the best of times is a great track considering Mike's dad dying and all.

It's a good prog Metal album but no where near the masterpiece earlier in the year from Mastodon, "Crack the Skye".
