|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
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 :)
Lost Not Forgotten
Jordan's piano at the start is beautiful! Nice progressive epic
This Is the Life
Great ballad with a cool, restrained performance for Petrucci. Myung shines
A real epic of a song, get's very wanky in the middle but it actually works.
Nice proggy sound.
|5||Bridges in the Sky|
A heavy track, but still proggy. Great Home-ish sounding section round 7 min
|6||Beneath the Surface|
Stunning, original way to end the album. LaBrie is perfect and I love the
|7||On the Backs of Angels|
Nice more commercial sounding song. Love the acoustic intro and Rudess'
piani part is sweet.
|8||Build 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.
|9||Far 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 :)
|I adore this album as you can probably guess ;)|
|I'm interested in hearing this then, I wasn't fussed on the track they released but I am a big Dream Theater so I'll likely enjoy it. |
|I hate everything about James LaBrie, so I'm not sure if I want to check this out. |
|sad confession: At one point in my life i said that James LaBrie was one of the greatest vocalists in modern metal.|
if only i could go back and slap my high school self in the face repeatedly...
|DT fucking sucks|
|are you sure this ain't gonna be "A dramatic TURD of events?"|
|Let's not be too hard on ourselves. I used to worship at the altar of Chester Bennington. |
|Haters will be haters. Tbh, the haters aren't gonna find anything to like here, but the fans should
appreciate this effort, you just have to remember it takes a few listens to fully appreciate :)|
