Listen... I have a ton of respect for Jerry as both a guitarist and songwriter. The guy is uber-talented. I have always held the position that there are two guys that simply couldn't be replaced in that band... Layne and Jerry. Their voice harmonies were so incredibly unique that not even the most skilled singer can sit in with Jerry and recreate that magic.

The closest was when Maynard James Keenan did a set with AIC... But, even with a singer as great as MJK, there was something missing. I'm not a fan of this DuVall character.

I will give the album an honest listen with a clear mind... No bias. But, you can't tell me that this doesn't make you sad...

Ugh.

I will not give it a clear listen. They should have changed the name if they wanted to continue.
