I don't think it sucks, but it's not particularly great either. If anything just check out the first two tracks and the final track.

I like the album overall, Petrucci and Rudess are amazing musicians. Myung is the same as he's always
been, and LaBrie can still put solid studio performances... But I DON'T like Mangini. Sure, the guy's
a machine, an incredible drummer with amazing speed and technique, who plays more complex stuff than
Portnoy... But as a musician (at least for DT, for obvious reasons), Pornoy's better. Every riff that
Portnoy played sounded the best it could... Every riff that Mangini plays in, could be a lot better.
Portnoy played what was best for the song or for individual parts, and I sometimes hear that lacking
in Mangini. This is my favorite band, but I really think they should take a break... And come back
with Portnoy. Unlikely, though. "False Awakening Suite", "The Looking Glass", and "Illumination
Theory" are the best songs, by far.

seriously, I've listened to these guys so many
times over the years.

Lots of respect for learning how to fap their
instruments in synchopated rhythms together but
I'll be damned if I can find a single shred of
humanity in this mess.

That's good because you don't really need to enjoy them outside those two
If you think there's no humanity in their music then listen to I&A again, a lot of emotion in there

Can't decide which one is worst, this or ADTOE. Both are painfully average though.

no humanity in this?

So the orchestral part in Illumination Theory did not make you feel anything?
