2 stars Too good to be true

This is not what I've expected from the band who have released Signify or In Absentia...

Ok a bit more in details: saving Lazarus, Arriving Somewhere But Not Here and The Start Of Something Beautiful (and the last 2 have some Dream Theater influences) there is nothing good... ok the first track is a marvelous paint of metal/prog music but c'mon if I want to listen metal I don't go for PT, not even for the guest. Ok past on Shallow (simple radio hit for metal fans), but please Wilson burn Halo, banish it from this land... it's the worst thing that you have ever wrote! (got the point? At least I can say that it worth a laught). After that and the nice wordplay (Mellotron Strach - the song is not so nice, but is one of the better parts, but it make me bored a bit), we got Open Car, a snapshot of what? (well I'll not explain) A joke maybe but I don't laugh this time, not nice nor good music just the same thing as Shallow, just a bit more structured with chorus. But the final track is something from another planet, maybe universe... Sha-la-la (I know the title, but the point is that there is not a song that can be called song!) pointless, useless to the album and bad like the whole ting... It's real, it's too good to be true: this time PT made the wrong step and published something that I cannot justify: Deadwing is a waste of time and there is better stuff to listen from PT, so collectors only and 2/5 stars, 'cause 3 songs don't worth an album as 4 chords don't make a million!

One last thing, to be honest I'm a PT fan but I don't give 5 (or 4) stars without a reason and there isn't really a good reason to give a vote like those, they made a mistake or Wilson lost his muse, I don't know but I know that Deadwing isn't a masterpiece, nor a good album compared with previous works. Apart from what I've expected from them and apart from being a fan.

See you for FOABP.
