Waaaaay better than the pathetic The Astonishing from a few years ago. 

The tracks are solid, not Images and Words awesome but solid. 

 

They finally put Jordan Rudess on a leash with focusing on more guitar and finally some bass. 

 

Any fan of DT should enjoy this one.

I'm a huge Dream Theater fan. They were my bridge from metal to prog and I worshipped everything they did for a good long while. I might be in the minority when I consider A Dramatic Turn of Events and their self-titled to be far superior to The Astonishing (it's interesting to see how opinions of that album differ between prog communities and others), so I was pleased to see the song lengths on this one cut back a little.

Still waiting for something from this album to really grab me though. I agree that LaBrie isn't much of a force here (which has nothing to do with his performance, the dude can still sing well). But I have no problem listening to it and giving it time to digest. The Astonishing was just boring as all get out.

Superb album...back to DT writing more accessible material after the last few releases (although I did like those too tbh). Some great tracks on here  'Barstool Warrior',  'Paralyzed'  and 'At Wit's End' being my faves so far. As usual lots to digest after only a couple of listens, but loving it so far.

I'm not the biggest DT fan, even though I've been following them since the debut. This new album is probably the best sounding album in their catalogue and the music is pretty solid as well. It got me into revisiting the previous Mangini albums in a different light: amazing how the present can affect the past!

    • I do like C&C but the whiny vocals get ti me a bit. I really have to be in the mood, but only cause of the vocals. The sci-fi concept series though, I love that.
    • Coheed and Cambria - Love Murder One. I posted this track in another thread today, but I had to post it here. I can't stop listening to it. These guys definitely lean towards the more Melodic side of Modern Rock. Great stuff!    
    • Kind of where I'm at too.  I like a few tunes here and songs are okay but alot of the songs sort of feel samey.  I think I've put 3 songs in my playlist from it.  
    • I'm with you and think it might be similar for me. I always loved H.E.A.T with Erik and was pretty much a Kenny basher as I wasn't a fan of those first 2 albums at all.  I had very low expectations and really didn't think I'd care much for new music with Kenny.  Anyways, I've slowly come around on Kenny as the singles were released and I'm enjoying the new album.  Yeah, it's not exciting me quite as much as the Gronwall albums did but Kenny sounds excellent to my ears and I'm having no issues with sound or production.  Just sounds like some good melodic hard rock to me.
    • Yeah, at the moment he's the only option for me here. A few guys I'm not really interested in and although EM was everywhere a few years ago, he definitely appears to have settled down recently. If anything, wouldn't mind seeing his name pop up a little more these days, though it's fine as is. 
    • I've been a bit let down by recent albums but the genuine anticipation I feel for new material from these guys means they must have done something right through the years. Would absolutely love it if they unexpectedly hit another homerun. 
    • Classless Act - Welcome to the Show Out of This World - Out of This World Within Temptation - The Unforgiving  The Black Sorrows - The Chosen Ones Horsehead - Onism i-TEN - Taking a Cold Look (Rock Candy remaster) Touch - Touch (Rock Candy remaster) Spys - Spys/Behind Enemy Lines (Renaissance double album reissue)
