Re: Mike Portnoy
Got a copy of "Awake" on the weekend - 70+ minutes of music on one CD is great value.
Mr Portnoy certainly can play - great staccato double kicks and some pretty good blasting too - lots of good stops / timing changes.
I got a bit sick of the chorused shredding lead guitar sound ..... obviously a good player but a bit more variety would be nice.....
So, next up... any recommendations for the best Slipknot album? :-)
