The only song on the new one I think of as filler is "Coeur D'Alene" other than that I love everything else. Overall Blackbird is probably the best and after seeing a good portion of it played live it's hard to argue against that.
Alter Bridge and Foo Fighters are the only modern rock bands I like. Most other bands today just don't have an individual sound and it's hard to tell who's who.
3/20 - Dream Theater
