Jon Oliva

Jon Oliva is a polarizing figure: Best known to most as a crucial member of Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Oliva and his brother also started Savatage, an early prog/power metal band whose importance is alternately overstated and understated. With Jon Oliva's Pain, he took the ridiculousness of the style to extremes, playing anthems mechanically as though he were forever trying to conquer a mountain. He's still a good singer, but for all its emotional weight, the music lacks frisson. He's touring his solo material, an uncomfortable thought. —Grayson Haver Currin
