Dude, I meant to listen to this then get down to listening to the new Dream Theater joint, but I've listened to this three times in a row and haven't yet started on the other DT. :D

Haha think you did it in the wrong order my man, this is too addictive. Though Devy just tweeted that you shouldn't over-listen to it on its own and wait for the full album!

I love this dude, and I really like some of the stuff he’s done over the years, and I get this is just fun and not to be taken seriously but it’s a little bit too all over the place for me.

As an overture it could definitely work depending on the rest of the album, it's a little too spastic for me though and never really allows any particular moment to get going enough for it to be enjoyable.

RustCohle, Dev's the first to admit that about this song. Give the rest of the album a try, this is essentially a 6-minute mess of a summary.

It's not bad, but I really miss the times where Devin knew how to be down to earth with his music as well, and not just all-out bombastic all the time.

Song sounds like he took 10 tracks, cut them to pieces and put them all together into one giant Frankenstein creation. It's definitely creative, but not an enjoyable listening experience per se. Might grow on me, who knows.

it's literally the overture for the album and encompasses like every style portrayed by all the other songs.

It is an overture, but also bear in mind that Devin kinda shook some creative shackles by disbanding DTP so at least the first album in this era is bound to be pretty cray

yeah after several listens i'm really not on board. i'll still listen to the record but every time i think i'm getting into it he suddenly shifts to another idea completely. it's too zany and sporadic for its own good for me. i understand that's obviously the point but eh, just not for me.

I can confirm that the rest of the album is less scatterbrained than this song - it's easily the worst track on the record. Rest is pretty neat - still very grandiose as modern Devin seems very keen to maintain that

I have my sources. Anyway, the album's second half is definitely stronger, it takes a while to build up momentum - though I'm not rating it above Ziltoid or Deconstruction just yet
