I know very well about Ray's vegan meals thanks to Nick!

Yeah Ray has been posting hilarious instagram stories about baking vegan cakes for his mum  :lol

Dude, if that place was near me I'd eat Vegan regularly, it was insanely good.

Vegan food, when done right, is delicious.

(Disclaimer: one of my best friends part owner of a restaurant specializing in vegan dishes)
I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

Nick, I could eat that every day it was that good.

I can't wait to pick up the CD tomorrow!

L-1ve is now out basically everywhere!

In additional to the interview with Ray already posted we also talked about the new live set (and upcoming set from Devin Townsend) on our latest discussion podcast here: http://www.sonicperspectives.com/features/talking-perspectives-episode-eight/

So the main takeaway from that is that the new studio album could well be here before the year is out. That's exciting news indeed!
And you may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

Nothing new album related......

But....I was listening to Haken and for some reason I thought about making my own dream setlist...This is what it became.

(I don't own Aquarius or else there'd be plenty of them. Still need to acquire and listen to that album...)


The Path
Earthrise
Portals
Pareidolia
Bound By Gravity
Visions
-------
Shapeshifter
The Endless Knot

Edit: I just realized Shapeshifter needs to be after Portals. Duh...

Edit 2: It actually does work both ways. I just can't choose...

With the exception of Initiate, the set list on that last tour was pretty stellar. I am not always fond of medleys, but the one they did for the first album was very well done, we got Visions in full, and tons of stuff from the last two albums.

I’m also not a big fan of medleys, but I also think they did a great job on aquamedley. And it was a great selection of songs, no doubt, although if L-1VE had insomnia, mind’s eye, portals and shapeshifter instead of visions I would be even happier 😉
It seems Nolly from Periphery is mixing the new album:

Over time, I find that, while I like the whole album, the only songs I got out of way to listen from Visions are the title track and Deathless (two of my favorite songs by the band in general).  Meanwhile, I listen to most or all of the other three albums.

I was pretty happy with the medley. It was my first time seeing them (and probably the first time many people in the states have seen them) and I wanted a setlist that covered as much ground as possible. Condensing the Aquarius stuff into one medley that managed to hit most of the highlights was a nice way to make that happen IMO.
