Added DiffLines:

* StepUpToTheMicrophone:
** Drummer Nick D'Virgilio succeeded Neal Morse as the band's lead singer.
** Jimmy Keegan (D'Virgilio's successor behind the drum kit) gets to sing lead on "Bennett Built a Time Machine."
** Dave Meros lends his voice to the bonus track "[[CoverVersion Iron Man]]."


After a good ten years' run as one of the world's leading ProgressiveRock outfits, FaceOfTheBand and main composer Neal Morse got religion and left the band in pursuit of a ChristianRock career [[note]]albeit one that is still very prog-tinged in terms of material, with Morse focussing a lot on concept albums referencing Christian themes[[/note]]. In a career move similar to their great example Music/{{Genesis}}, the band has continued with drummer Nick d' Virigillio (who, oddly enough, ''was'' in Genesis during the Ray Wilson period) taking up the singer's mantle and recently released their tenth album ''X'' to great acclaim. Once he left, he got replaced with Ted Leonard and Jimmy Keegan.

Added DiffLines:

* WordSaladLyrics: On the demo of 'Mr. Potato Head'. A final version of the song with real lyrics has never appeared, and is unlikely to.

Added DiffLines:

* AscendedExtra: Sort of. Tour drummer Jimmy Keegan was promoted to a fully-fledged band member following the departure of Nick D'Virgilio.
