I just cannot get into it. When you buy a Dream Theater album you expect some amazing work from a set of truly super talented musicians, and this album does not let you down on the individual front. Unfortunately no matter how talented they are, it appears DT forgot a main ingredient here - Songs! Impressive twiddling, drumming and experimentation gives way to simply awful messy 'songs'. On some tracks I have tried so hard to feel the music but get shot down in a wall of confusion and over the top twaddle. You could say that this is their 'Tales from the Topographic Oceans' moment :-) How on earth you other guys rate this so highly is beyond me. I am sure you are all thinking I am obviously not a true DT fan, but I have all of their albums, some of which I prefer more than others but I like them all apart from this one. We all know what they are capable of and how skillful they are, so how they come up with this spagetti mix of an album is confusing. Luckily they got back on track after this album. Sometimes 'Less is more' as the Marillion album suggests (Don't get me started on that.....).
