5 stars It is shocking all the negative reviews for this album, because this is easily one of their best efforts. The song writing is excellent and there is some amazing musicianship. They have an amazing block of albums from IMAGES AND WORDS, AWAKE, METROPOLIS PART 2: SCENES FROM A MEMORY, and SIX DEGREES OF INNER TURBULENCE. While that block of albums is amazing, this self titled release is the best album since SIX DEGREES OF INNER TURBULENCE. The whole album is solid, but the standout tracks are THE ENEMY INSIDE and ILLUMINATION THEORY. ILLUMINATION THEORY takes a page out of Rush's playbook with a very atmospheric movement migrating into a drum and bass groove that kicks the track into high gear. I would not listen to all the negativity on this one as it is a solid effort worthy of the Dream Theater name.
