Frankly, I don't care a ton about seeing BTBAM again. I like them a lot live, but I'm ready to see The Ocean.

I'm anticipating that tour soooo much.

One of my favorite bands. I'm sure it'll be great.

I'm kind of the same way. I've seen BTBAM twice once for the colors tour and once for Progressive Nation 2008. So I've seen all of Colors and 2 segments *Ants In The Sky, White Walls* twice.

If this tour comes here *Minnesota*, I really want to go, but I'm more interested in seeing The Ocean because I never thought they'd be touring in the states.

Even though I love BTBAM to death, I felt that Colors and The Great Misdirect weren't very cohesive as a whole, not like Blackwater Park by Opeth (the album that sets the songwriting bar for progressive metal). Hopefully this can flow more together; I have high hopes for these guys.

Yep. Colors isn't very cohesive as a whole. I love it to death, but I feel like that the songs just don't all flow together. Yes, I realize its basically one long continuous song. It doesn't change my opinion.

Sun of Nothing and Ants of the Sky seem to drag on to me, and White Walls is a little too long for its own good. Somehow they're just out of reach of getting to that Opeth level of genius in melding together heavy -> soft parts -> build up -> heavy again. I think the guitar noodling goes on a little too much at times, and would prefer a more cohesive feel.

I still love BTBAM, and listen to Colors all the time. Amazing album. The formula can be improved though, and I'm hoping they figure out how to do it.
