A Dramatic Turn Of Events

Good lord this album blew me away. It odes take a few listens to fully appreciate it but my god is it good! Dream Theater are inspired again! :D Anyway, here's the songs ranked
1Dream Theater
Breaking All Illusions

Fantastic track, very melodic and upbeat with groovy bass and excellent lyrics. Old school sound. Not a second I don't enjoy :)
2
Lost Not Forgotten

Jordan's piano at the start is beautiful! Nice progressive epic
3Band
This Is the Life

Great ballad with a cool, restrained performance for Petrucci. Myung shines too.
4Outcry

A real epic of a song, get's very wanky in the middle but it actually works. Nice proggy sound.
5Bridges in the Sky

A heavy track, but still proggy. Great Home-ish sounding section round 7 min
6Beneath the Surface

Stunning, original way to end the album. LaBrie is perfect and I love the acoustic guitar.
7On the Backs of Angels

Nice more commercial sounding song. Love the acoustic intro and Rudess' piani part is sweet.
8Build Me Up, Break Me Down

Really cool song, wasn't sure what to think at first, but it grew on me so much. LaBrie's screams sound really cool and the electronic edge is something really different for the band.
9Far From Heaven

Still a brilliant and pretty song, but it lacks the punch the others gave. Nice break after the 2 long heavy tracks though :)
