quite the contrary, man! i find that their music exhibits quite a lack of emotion or soul....it's precise, demanding, and as a result, quite lifeless.

Don't get me wrong, I had my moments of obsession, but that faded after "Scenes from a Memory". They're resting on their laurels now, in my opinion....sure, they can all play some challenging stuff, but that doesn't make it quality music :-\ And as far as their musicianship - granted, they're all phenomenal, but once you look past the flurry of notes, you'll latch on to so many more inspired, creative, and gifted musicians!
