Gonna be a pretty weak effort as always, but i don't see the purpose in rating it before the release. Free and pointless hate.

i'm sorry but if you go out of your way to "counterbalance" pre-release shitpost ratings, you
aren't welcome in the gene pool

Wow! Dream Theater comes in and drops a modern prog masterpiece! It really hold up with rtheir best work. Amazingly, the first three songs/first three singles are not the best rsongs here, in fact, I like everything afterward even more. They really hit the mark with rthis one and strengthened their legacy.

If all the Dream Theater albums from the past 15 or so years had a big orgy, fused into one, cloned itself, screwed the clone and made a single entity, this would be it.

dream theater deserves it for The Astonishing.

4.0 excellentZeiu | February 20th 19

Best Dream Theater album since Black Clouds, consistent, not too wanky but also there's the
typical 11 minute song. Bangs hard when it needs to and keeps things interesting. Labrie is still
Labrie. All of them seem on the same page here.

Also to counterbalance the pointless pre-release hate. If this keeps up, it will be the first
album since ADTOE with a reasonable average rating.

3.5 greatkheman1317 | February 25th 19

Though not on par with the standards created by the early DT albums, Distance Over Time is still a good addition to their discography, especially after the abomination of the Astonishing. rThe album starts out strong, goes a little wayward in the mid-section but still manages to pull through at the end. "Paralyzed" and "Barstool Warrior" is what I've been listening to most from this album, currently.

3.5 greatOmairSh | February 24th 19

The band isn't pushing any
boundaries, but this is very
solid for what it is.
Haven't enjoyed a DT album
this much since Octavarium.
Even LaBrie sounds good.

Feels like reuniting with an
old
friend after many years

4.0 excellentYRI | November 10th 18

Just judging by the teaser, I think we might actually get heavier and better Dream Theater album once again. I'm pretty confident it's gonna be better than the last album. I really hope I won't have to change my rating.

While this is a technically impressive record, it's a real slog to get through. It almost gets a 3 for being musically impressive, but it simply never kept my interest.

1.0 awfulthis is the best album that i\\\\\\\'ve (n)ever heard in my entire life. | February 24th 19

I wouldnt normally rate this but felt compelled to drop a cool 1 out of 5 on it just to spite the counter balance saddos

Bump

3.0 goodGoldenGuy444 | February 22nd 19

It's fine enough. The three singles were easily the weakest parts of the album... however nothing here really stood out too much. Barstool Warrior (funnily enough) was the best track followed closely by At Wit's End. The production has seen a huge step up from The Astonishing, the drums here back a huge punch and nothing is muddied too much. The solos are also Petrucci's best in ages, with some crazy technical ones and some melodic ones, its a nice balance that works well. This is one of those albums that I may go back to eventually, but after two listens I feel like I've already gotten all I can out of it. It's fine, but it isn't terribly memorable.

Bump

4.5 superbSoilworker90 | February 22nd 19

This is as good as I have never expected it - especially not after 'The Astonishing'. Yes, this is great! And finally can be called Metal again!
