Yep debut gets my vote also.

But I'm kinda struggling with Fortress unfortunately. Love this band and was a first day buyer for each release had Fortress in the bag before listening to it (always nice in this day and age), but while it's super good and couple of the songs are indeed on their list of very bests, overall can't get into everything :( I think (and hope) it's just the quality that has come out this year and my 180 about turn back into the world of prog (mostly brought about by the stellar Dream Theater and Fates Warning releases), and the big hype for Fortress gave big expectations but while cool, not necessarily better than what came before?

Dunno, while there's plenty to like on Fortress, as strange as it may sound think they're losing something with this ever increasing heavy to the head riffery they continue to build upon, I mean I like heavy but feel it's at the expense of something but can't quite put finger on it...

But still, maybe that's just me and can't dispute this is a fine album, perhaps just not the big step it's being hailed to be!? Still beats the heck outta a lot of other releases so count me in regardless! ;)
