5 stars One of my favorite Dream Theater releases! Not being a fan of the early Dream Theater sound which I find to be too 80's-sounding for my tastes the band finally struck gold with the release of Metropolis Part 2: Scenes From A Memory which was followed brilliantly by the two follow-up releases.

Being the second album after Scenes From A Memory, Train Of Thought proved once and for all that Dream Theater could pretty much do anything! To tell you the truth my first experience of this album wasn't as enjoyable as I would have liked it to be. It's definitely a bumpy ride the first couple of times but if you manage to hold on and revisit the release a couple of times it is guaranteed to grow on you.

What made this album even more memorable for me was seeing the band perform all these tracks live during one crazy 4-hour show in January 2004! Since then I've seen the band on at least 3-4 other occasions but I've never seen them as excited and energetic as they were back in 2004. For me that definitely shows that Train Of Thought is a very special release indeed!

***** songs: This Dying Soul (11:28) Stream Of Consciousness (11:16) In The Name Of God (14:16)

**** songs: As I Am (7:47) Endless Sacrifice (11:23) Honor Thy Father (10:14) Vacant (2:58)

Total Rating: 4,53
