If I compare this year to the years of past:
2006: Jorn, Evergrey, Circle II Circle, Thunderstone, Vision Divine, Savage Circus, etc
2004: Weapons of Mass Destruction (Savatage reunion), Edguy, Kamelot, Brainstorm, Tad Morose, etc
2002: Blind Guardian, Gamma Ray, Edguy, Angra, Silent Force, etc
or even the other years of the past...
I think this year is a signifigant dissapointment. I love JOP, but getting them on that bill is no accomplishment. They're located in Florida anyway.
