No "but" needed, that's probably why you are such a big fan.
STP are one of the most eclectic rock bands to really hit the bigtime that I can think of. Something they don't receive enough credit for.
Anyway, I have listened to a lot of the symphonic metal in this thread and I am not feeling it. I hear a lot of clever instrumentation and impressive arrangements, but I am not hearing much in the way of songwriting that is exciting me.
