Talent has nothing to do with what I was trying to say. Yeah, they can play the heck out of their instruments, but so can Yngwie, and his music sucks. What I'm saying is there's no one thing about their music I've yet heard that makes me say "THAT is Haken". Dream Theater, Fates Warning, ...

Haken / Vector - I've never gotten the appeal of Haken. Something about them always comes off as if they're trying too hard, or they're playing something that isn't them. I don't care much for Leprous either, but they have a much more formulated identity. Haken is just sort of.... there, and they d...
