    Yeah, the name stems from the Book of Ishmael I believe.

    I'm surprised this thread has gone over a month without a post, especially considering these guys are recording a new album.

    A link to some hype. New track on that Rick Toone Spaceship? Count me excited!

    I heard Tosin is really into being a bad boy.
    He never puts his shopping carts in the cart corral and always brings more than 10 items into the 10 items or less lane.
    He's known for deleting shows of Javier's DVR.
    I also heard Nolly almost quit during the recording of Motion because Tosin had recently acquired those trick gum packs that snap your finger.
    "Behaving Badly" is sort of his nod to these acts.

    So, what's the Misha involvement on this album?

    Am I listening or ignoring?

    I couldn't work on this one because they were writing it right as we were doing PIII unfortunately.

    The brain dance is an interesting track for sure, but does anyone else feel like the tone is a little "farty" for want of a better word..?

    AAL needs a good clean vocalist.

    They're an instrumental band, one of the most highly rated of the modern progressive metal movement. I don't know why you'd want them to be any thing other than that.

    Kinda gotta agree. Listened to it three times now, and nothing about it moves me. It's just....a collection of notes.

    I like it. It has all the elements I like about them while still feeling fresh.

    I'll go ahead and say that I enjoyed the song; by no means would I say I disliked it, but it is a little bit on the wonky side. I found the drums to actually be the most enjoyable part of the whole song. I'm a pretty easy listener to please, though, so for more picky listeners or people that are getting comfortable with AAL's sound over the last three albums, I could see how you might not dig it.

    To me, it sounds like a continuation of their sound from TJoM.
