Universal Migrator Part 1: The Dream Sequencer I think my main complaint with this album is that it all seems so random unless you understand the concept at hand.

Re: SAW [Week 47 - "Universal Migrator Pt I: The Dream Sequencer"]

I'm guessing it's prog-metal "cheese" MP is referring to, which was a common complaint on Prog-Archives. So what is prog-metal “cheese?” Is it the concept itself, a technical element, or just a genre bias against the so-called ‘metal’ component? I’m not well-versed enough in prog to understand.

Pack Up the Cats As I said in my intro to this album, it was a nostalgic pick more than a 'I want you guys to love this' pick.
