Does that mean this is extremely different than the band's other albums?

Not really, it just sounds like a blend of some of their past work, mainly their 90's stuff.

Nope. It just sounds like their oldest stuff, with a bit of the new mixed in. Apparently a time when it was still more of a democracy within the band.

I checked it out because it seemed to be one of the marquee releases of the year. Hoped they would
surprise me, but this is the most boring album of 2011, aside from Heritage.

I was underwhelmed by it at first, but now I think it's one of their best releases. Took me a while to take the album for what it was and also realize how technical it actually is.

The songwriting on this one is much more consistent throughout but the lack of anything that's really mindblowing is disappointing given that pretty much every record so far has at least one track that was downright awesome.

Good review btw Willie. I still might throw up a slightly more negative one in the next few days.

Thanks. I expect that there will be a few more reviews soon -- especially since I deleted a few last week

There’s probably not a single Dream Theater fan that doesn’t already know that Mike Portnoy is no longer in the band.

Wait what?

Hahahahha kidding kidding.

It shows that Mangini was the safest choice DT could ever make. Would've liked to seen them with Wildoer.

Umpteenth album I give a shot, still apathetic to DT. Good review Willie.

Instead of trying to sound like Metallica with a keyboard player

I must have missed a few albums then cause I can't remember DT ever playing thrash... Good review nonetheless.
