Okay. I like Dream Theater, and I like The Flower Kings/Transatlantic and all assorted side projects of different neo 'prog rockers' that are presently out on the market. I have ordered solo projects from different bands (Neal Morse solo's) etc... but they all are very good, and I enjoy them, but rarely does a side project rival the original group from which the member came from....

James Labrie from Dream Theater shines on this CD. The whole CD is wonderful. His singing is great, the songs are tight, and if you weren't paying attention, you might mistake this for a new DT cd.

Sometimes in Prog rock, the music can be totally excellent, whilst the lyrics or the singer not be really with it. The lyrics are either put in the song as an afterthought... a speed bump on the way to the music muscle. And, we as music lovers will tolerate the dada lyrics as long as the music carry's the day. However, the great prog songs also had decent/good lyrics that you could enjoy or at least sing along to (Close to the edge, down by a river...) I guess the point I am making is, this CD was produced with an emphasis on good harmonies, and wonderful lyric writing. The music is flawless, but the vocals and lyrics also are very strong. This makes a very strong package, which is the main reason it gets a FIVE instead of a 4. Or a 5- .. due to strong music.

The whole CD is enjoyable but there are some standout songs here that one should pay attention to: (in order of appearance)

1. River out of Eden. This is a great song. I enjoyed from the initial time I heard it and it sticks in my head.

2. Your Eyes. This song sorta, kinda, in a way, reminds me of classic Kansas. Not totally, but done very well. I really enjoy the chorus.

First of all, Dream Theater is my favorite band. After hearing all about Frameshift I always put this CD off. Then one day I said what the hell...

WHY DID I WAIT???!!!! This CD beats alot of Dream Theater material. Every song one this CD has it's place and fits in perfectly. This defines progressive rock/metal.

ABOVE THE GRASS PT. 1 - A nice 43 second intro. basically previews the final track. Good for what it is.
10/10

THE GENE MACHINE - A fast-paced song to start it off. KILLER chorus, good verses. Short keyboard break fits in perfectly. Can't find anything I don't like about this song.
10/10

SPIDERS - This song has a great groove to it. Starts off with James singing a funky verse. Good guitar. The "Queen-ish" interlude where James layers himself is great. Good song.
10/10

RIVER OUT OF EDEN - Here the CD mellows down a bit. The guitar intro is interesting. Good slower song. Not the best of the CD though.
7/10

MESSAGE FROM THE MOUNTAIN - EXCELLENT two minute intro. one of the 3 best intros on the CD. (The other being Off The Ground and Above The Grass Pt. 2) Finally breaks in with a great verse followed by a great chorus as well. Great solo and outro. This song deserves:
11/10

YOUR EYES - Catchy song, all acoustic. It's kind of poppy, but doesn't fail to impress.
8/10

LA MER - This song reminds me of why I love LaBrie's slow ballads. Incredible piano/vocal work. Very emotional song. The song picks up later on with the full band, and hits you head on with emotion. Then back to the piano and James. Incredible ballad.
10/10

NICE GUYS FINISH FIRST - Faster-paced song. Decent verse and chorus. I find it to be lacking something.

Synth, Wah, Funk... it's all here! I'm only on track 5 and I can tell this CD was WELL worth the wait -- not only for its superb musicianship, but also because of the lyrical content. The song titles are ABSOLUTELY perfect for the messages they convey.
All of the music is top-notch. Expect a new level for LaBrie's vocals... impeccable. Lots of layering, harmonizing, and vibrato. Great stuff!!! "River Out of Eden" is an amazing song, with a chorus that'll hook you on the first listen.
My wait is over, and the empty position in my CD changer has been filled! I expect this to stay in rotation with Mullmuzzler for a long while.
***After many listens***
Well... the music's had time to sink in, and I now have even more feelings for the album. Don't listen to this CD and expect Dream Theater. The only aspect of Dream Theater you'll get (obviously) are the vocal stylings of James LaBrie. Having never listened to Chain, I have much respect for Henning Pauly's musical versatility. There are more mellow/laid back songs (Your Eyes, La Mer) on this disc, as well as straight out rockers (Off the Ground).
Stand out tracks:
Your Eyes - Expect a Wait For Sleep or Silent Man type song here.
La Mer - Beautiful song about the oceans (again in the same vain as Your Eyes)
River Out of Eden - Great chorus, catchy song... had me from the first listen!
Arms Races - Good song musically, but the real amazement is the lyrical standpoint of this song (weighing advantages and competition in the animal world).
Walking Through Genetic Space - Almost Gregorian Chant like at times. AMAZING vocal harmonies.
**I can't say ENOUGH about the variety of music types and moods. Synth, strings, wah, funk, rock, nearly operatic, jazzy... even a BANJO is utilized!!!
