    I love that song too Frank. It's my favorite on that album, which I still consider my least favorite of all their albums. Mainly because I find both the epics rather unsatisfying. As mentioned by...

    Well, all in all, I'm pretty pleased with this album. Not blown away, and it will never be in my top 5 FK albums, but I like it. For a band that's been around as long as they have, and considering...
