  • AlgosonnicIt is basically the sequel to the fatrat unity.
  • AnonymousThe video on YouTube on the concert in the UK for "Unity" is my very favorite. ALL of the guys are so HOT, the song is awesome. Playing over and over.
  • Zero from The Abyss, NjGreat song! When they play it live Eric plays the intro on a mini-keyboard, and then switches seamlessly to his bass.
