2 stars When a new album of Dream Theater comes to light you always expect a masterpice of progressive metal.

That is because they create this type of prog rock.

But maybe as Genesis(one of the most important fathers of symphonic prog ) Yes, Rush(in the heavy prog)to be so much exposed to fans reactions(the ligther ones ,the easy listening ones) provocate a temptation to do more massive music.

Genesis,Yes and Rush went poppier....

But what happens in this DT album?

In the two last ones(before BCSL) I found a little lack of creativiness.

Black Clouds... has to much simmilarities to the melodies and arrangements of those ones,but is worst...And is worst because is very difficult to find in this album some originality,...melodies to put you "chicken skin".To much repetition of a melody formula and arrengements.

It seems the more heavier musicians of DT(Labrie,Petrucci,Portnoy)took the flag here.

Nothing remarkable with J Rudess.

And no compositions of these album I think ,will pass to prog rock history.

So very dissapointed.
