Not really. I've never seen a better technical drummer than MP (prog style-wise, anyway).

I loved Mike when he was in DT, but now I dont like him anymore. After he complained about James LaBrie saying "we dont miss Mike". I dont have the same respect for him.

Give the man credit for sticking with the same band through thick and thin for 25 years, touring the world, making numerous records, and being an extremely influential drummer.

This is coming from a drummer, and we drummers need change sometimes. It's not that A7x was giving him something DT couldn't, he was just getting tired of the grind that comes with being in such a huge famous band. There were times when I changed my style of playing when I felt like it was getting old.

Don't hate on this man for being on the pursuit of happiness. He's doing what makes him happy, and I think every man or woman in the world has the right to whatever they need to do to make themselves happy.

I wish Mike Portnoy the best of luck in his future endeavors, and he is incredibly talented.

Even though Mangini is pretty awesome, it's going to suck because Labrie still doesn't realize how bad he is. :\

Well Labrie has been better lately. When I saw DT live last summer, Labrie sounded much better than a few years ago, but still.

Athough I am very excited about the new album! Its called "A Dramatic Turn of Events" really like the name. Kinda shows how the band felt after Mike left

Better than ear-bleedingly awful doesn't say much tbh. That's like saying human shit smells less bad than dog shit.
