16:18 - PocketMetal Ok, that's fine. It took me 9 months to read it but it was literally the most life-changing experience of my life, I don't regret a second of it.
15:55 - Zaphod Nope, and I don't intend to. I could go on and explain why, but it'd take me multiple shouts and I'm not really feeling like explaining my opinion on modern epic fantasy. So let's just say the series is too long for me.
15:45 - PocketMetal I like modern fantasy the most, have you read Malazan Book of the Fallen?
15:43 - Zaphod I usually read fantasy and sci fi, but most modern epic fantasy doesn't do it for me.
15:38 - PocketMetal I usually read epic fantasy, it was even harder for me to suddenly go to space.
15:31 - Zaphod It might also have to do with the fact that the last book I did read was Dune and that was one of the best sci fi books I've ever read.
15:29 - Zaphod I'm still on the first book. It's hard to get through for me, but that might have more to do with the fact that I haven't read a book in 4 months (!) (I usually read quite often)

"Falling Into Infinity" is Dream Theater's fourth full-length album and it was released in 1997, following the very complicated "Awake". So what could you expect more from this record? Surely a lot seeing the amazing work produced on "Awake". And their music meets again fans' expectations while bringing new people into their pool of listeners. Why? Let's see...
It would be much much better if they would be given the freedom. Damn record labels But still, very enjoayble
record label had nothing to do with how they sounded on this album and the sort of songs they wrote. It was the band themselves that wanted to go down that road.
No Ravenous is right. The band told about this in their documentary "The Score So Far..." 20th Anniversary Documentary from the Score live DVD. They said they couldn't release some songs that they intended to be on the CD. Raise the Knife is one of those songs (they played the song on the Score DVD). See the clip here (starts at 1:40 minutes).
