If you mean by interesting uninspired, direction- and meaningless then you‘re right.

Self-Titled: Almost-expired trail mix with too many raisins.



This: Raisins and expired turkey jerky.

Self-Titled was pretty solid, lots of great John Myung moments on that one.

This album truly killed any enthusiasm I had for these guys. They'd have to bust out some Six Degrees-tier material to convince me.

Apparently they polled fans on what the new album should sound like and the results were ToT and SC.

I mean, I have always had a soft spot for ToT and while I'm not the biggest fan of SC, it does tie with BC&SL for my favorite DT album production-wise.

I dig Train of Thot, too, but I don't think James can pull off vocals like that anymore. I thought the poll a just for fun thing, would be a shame if they really went after it

I think they are really desperate to get widespread appeal, their production updates were only talking about how this was going to be 'the best of Dream Theater' and it was gonna be 'a record for the fans' etc... Problem is, most people listening to DT are either obnoxious (Porntoy > Mangini reeeee) or think everything the band has ever done is amazing... I just want them to get an outside producer

Lol if you have to poll your fans on your new sound you aren't into making the music anymore.

He couldn't pull them off back then either; he sounded awful.
