A new album coming out from the "improg" masters from Chicago. I know I'm the only fan here on the boards but you guys should check out what they've accomplished with Death By Stereo. Very few guitar solos, and every track is completely fat-less, trimmed down to about 4 minutes compared to the average 10+ minute length of their tunes live.
Here's a tasty video
of an old tune of there's called Nothing Too Fancy. Not on the new album, but you get the idea.
