Well, it was Fates Warning touring for Disconnected, probably their worst album.

I was lucky enough to meet Alex Skolnik who was in Savatage for one album and speaking of said album. Make sure to also pick up Handful of Rain. Plus I also have my Savatage shirt to be thankful for. tehehehe
Wise words.
To be honest, I really enjoy every Savatage album. Some are signifigantly better than others, but I get enjoyment from parts of every album they ever did.
If I had to rank, I'd say I view their discography like this:
Streets > Edge of Thorns > Handful of Rain > Dead Winter Dead = The Wake of Magellan = Gutter Ballet > Poets and Madmen > Hall of the Mountain King > Power of the Night > Fight For the Rock = Sirens

I've never met Alex Skolnick, but I've met Jon Oliva, Zak Stevens, Chris Caffery, and Jeff Plate, all more than once except for Plate. I couldn't have been happier with how nicely they treated me. Jon truly treats his friends like family. When I met them I didn't feel like: "OMG I'm meeting Jon Oliva". I was at first, but then I was overcome with this genuine niceness that made me feel like I was talking to someone who I'd known for longer than just a few moments, probably through the deep emotional connection of so much of Jon's music.

I too am now fortunate enough to have a Savatage shirt. I was able to get one of those Criss Oliva guitar graphic shirts off of Ebay for a pretty penny. I'm very happy to have it.

And I truely believe they are the most underated, underappreciate, and ultimate cult band of all-time. They mean the world to their fans but to everyone else they're nobodies.

WE NEED A REUNION NOW!

Disconnected is far from my favorite FW CD, but I do like it. And that must have been a great show. Gotta kick myself for missing that tour.

I really enjoy "One", but aside from that the majority of the album does practically nothing for me. For me Fates Warning's all about their middle career, ie. Perfect Symmery, Parallels, and Inside Out.

That is mainly true for me as well, but I love FWX. Give it another chance sometime.
