4 stars Maybe train of thought it has been one of the less conventional DT's albums from their career until these days. For some part of the Dream Theater's followers this record it was too loaded with elements of metal music, besides that is possible to find some elements from music tendencies that were very popular in those years, for example from nu metal. Probably for these reasons they didn't like it, but for the rest of their fans (and here, I must include myself in this list) we loved it, because if there's a particular spicy on DT's music, is certainly the fusion between progressive music elements (from 70's) and some resources from heavy metal, as well you can appreciate similar characteristics in other big quantity of progressive metal bands currently and in fact since long time ago. Finally, I'm just wanting to expose my point of view and my best advice for you is to listen carefully this record and try to enjoy it, of course if you like this kind of music and specially from Dream Theater.

Personal hightlights:

. As I am . This dying soul . vacant . Stream of consciousness . In the name of God
