I seriously had neck cramps once after listening to this record because IT'S SO FREAKING AWESOME! Non stop headbanging madness at a breakneck pace. How this band managed to achieve this so late in their career is beyond me.

Well, I went for a walk in the park next to my school when I had the time and I tried to catch every note that was in the moment while trying to not expect anything. I must say, I wasn't disappointed. On the contrary, I was amazed. This album is really kicking some ass now. Listening to it with full attention makes it so much better. Like five thousand times better. I gave this a four at first, now it's an absolute five star album. There's just so much depth to this. These songs never grow old or boring.

A stunning prog metal album. It's hilariously over the top and pretentious, but it doesn't take itself seriously. However despite its cheese there are still some very serious themes in the lyrics like relationship addiction, depression, etc. rThe music is fantastic. It's heavy, diverse, technical and emotive. This is everything one looks for in a prog metal album. Traditional prog metal done right.

A Tear Beyond Humanitales
Alter Bridge The Last Hero
It's basically Slash' arena rock and Tremonti's heavyness mashed over Alter Bridge - to very inconsistent results. Some of their best ever tracks but also some of their worst.

Dream Theater - compact edition. This one suffers from a lack of originality and formulaicness, but it's still Dream Theater and their technical skill alone makes up for a great album. First 3/4 tracks and Illumination Theory are stand-outs. The rest is just ok.
Dream Theater The Astonishing
Album is great when you can look past the cheese. It's varied and original. Doesn't reach really big heights, but there are some excellent tracks in there like Three Days and Ravenskill.
