In my opinion, the newer Savastuff is better than the older.
Streets is in a league of its own, but aside from that DWD
is my favorite album, followed by HOR then TWOM.
I think the guys are all doing an outstanding job, and I
wouldn't have them change a thing. Dr. Butcher is good,
but it's more negative than I prefer. TSO is outstanding,
but could use a lot more bite. If I could influence the
next Savatage album, I would have these ingredients, most
of which are already in existing Savatage albums:
(1) Two kick-ass metal/classical (instrumental) pieces
(2) Two kick-ass screaming metal pieces (like Taunting Cobras)
(3) Two five-part counterpoint songs (like Chance)
(4) Four soft ballads (like Stay, or All That I Bleed) that
show off Zak's silky voice.
(5) Two duets with Zak and Jon trading parts.
(6) A piano-only song where Jon teaches his Grand Piano a
severe lesson (like he did on some of the DWD stuff).
(7) A love song
Wish #2: A full 2 or 3-CD version of Streets with all the
songs as they were originally written.
Hey--A man's allowed to dream, can't he?
