This album is not as good as their first, it's good but not better. No fricken way is his voice better than 'Maynard James Keenan's'. He has a good voice but let's get real. :) I can understand Australia wanting a band that tops Tool. Your gonna have to do better than this though..When it happens I"ll be the first from the US to admit it and love that album.:) The Catalyst Fire is much better than Asymmety though. I didn't care for that album much. If anything I thought Ian Kelly would take possibly take the thrown from Maynard. Not the case though.
I didn't say he was a better vocalist, he just has more variation in melody at points in the album and his tone is reminiscent of Maynard's, if only a bit higher pitched.
Never said they're Austalia's replacement for Tool either. Tool is Tool, DLC is DLC. I just found minor similarities that I felt Tool fans could appreciate.
