    The bass often has trouble standing out and finding its space in metal, especially in bands that use 7 string guitars to play really low riffs. Not the best instrument to focus on when listening to that kind of music IMO.
    Not just a Genesis fanboy.

    ^^ that is exactly also my "problem" with Haken. Although technically very impressive, I just get hammered down by their sound. The Mountain was very good, Affinity had its moments... Vector, not so much IMO. Too predictable, somehow.

    Well, I just meant that I'm a musician, so I can listen to it from that perspective. Not necessarily always focusing on the bass. And there are parts, at least on previous Haken albums and especially with Conner Greens 6-string, where the bass was quite noticeable.

    I really don't listen to Haken for the bass playing per se, even though some of it is (I'm sure) technically demanding or whatever.
    Just sitting at home rocking back and forth and jealously caressing my invisible collection of theoretical assets.

    ... McLean's bass was more pronounced, with more fret buzz in it. They should all employ Jon Stockman (Karnivool) tone ASAP !
