Not a huge fan of his vocals in DT, but they are far from being as bad as the haters say they are.  For the most part they are fine, and honestly I miss the live backing vocals.  I thought he was really good on that in the live setting. JP singing along to the backing track isn't quite the same as seeing the mic stand swing over to MP's face and hearing some real backing live vocals.

This is something I agree with, tho. JP's voice is barely hearable in the mix, and it gives the impression he's just lip-synching to the pre-recorded backing tracks lol. Although there is something nice and elegant about DT using backing tracks it felt more 'sweaty and live rock & roll' with MP on board, which was very cool and very live.

I think Portnoy's vocals are all right but I can't say I really miss them on the newer albums.
