Album Rating: 3.1

it's getting rated a bit higher than it should because it's not as outright awful as their last three, but yeah it's not too bad

let's bear in mind TOT has As I Am which is in strong contention for the worst DT lyrics... with Dark Eternal Night obviously

Digging: Black Thought - Streams of Thought, Vol. 3: Cane and Abel

As I Am has their worst lyrics? Hmm

This is pretty much on par with ADToE for me, which is pretty good despite some flaws. At times it reminds me a bit of some of their older work mixed with some ToT, but with the shorter songs it's a more than welcome change. I'm only a couple listens in but so far I'm liking a lot better than I thought I would, considering their last couple of fails.

I'm gladly surprised, it doesn't reinvent the wheel but it definitely looks like they learned from their mistakes.

King Viper or whatever is a kinda corny song but I can still tolerate it

And I can love it easily. They should play with that style in the future

Can we talk about how good of a song At Wit's End is? Most beautiful JP solo since the Best of Times.

So many good albums released today it's ridiculous. It's Christmas today.

@Dmax: Right? I even hear that the new Attila is their best in years, which is insane.

They were never anything special, but it tells me they're crafting a good party record for the first time in years.

Oh nice! That one wasn't as much on my radar but I'll be checking it out today then.

The ones I'm on are

Dream Theater

Rhapsody of Fire

Marco Sfolgi (didn't even know about, but its about as good as instrumental smooth guitar shred gets)

Find Me (really awesome AOR stuff. I only dug a few songs from the first couple albums, but this one is great all the way through)

Continuum (Pretty insane tech-death, but quality)

Can Bardd (epic folk metal stuff)

Aenimus (ambitious proggy deathcore stuff from a young band)

Cliffside - The Wilderness (reminds me of ERRA, pretty good)



Then there's Overkill, Candlemass, Delain, Imperia

That's just what I know

Just finished listening on proper speakers. Barstool Warrior is easily the best song they've done since Breaking All Illusions. Such great guitar tones and melodies. And Pale Blue Dot has some crazy instrumental stuff! At Wits End is another amazing song.

Really liking all of it tbh, very happy with this.
