Symphony X - Paradise Lost

Saw them open for Dream Theater on Saturday.

Hearing Russell Allen sing and then have James LaBrie follow, it made it very clear how James's voice has deteriorated over the years. The worst thing is his vibrato technique, it's just awful and he seems to use it to avoid holding high notes. Urgh. I still love his singing, but only really on the old recordings.

Wish there was a way for DT to replace him with Russell - that would be the best singer change ever!!
