5 stars Since this is an opinion review i have to say this is a truely great DT album. Though some seem to see it as a failure or the worst album that DT has released. I enjoy the difference that this album presents. I don't want Images 2, or any other remake of an older album. I don't see how some can say this is like other nu-metal that is out there. This is a metal album, no doubt about it. But it is still DT. It is still the riffs and off-meter time changes that we have come to expect. It may not be so melodic and soft-core-emotional that we have heard in the past. This is DT and it can be heard on all the songs. This may not be as ground breaking as Images, but after all the releases that we have gotten to enjoy over the past 15+ years i must say that they still are DT. No one else can play and write this way. And for that i am greatful. I do highly recommend this album. It is one of the better DT albums that i have, and i have them all. We may never receive another "Images" album from DT. Each release has a different appeal. And not all DT albums i enjoy as much as Images. Not many DT fans really seem to either. If you want some DT Metal, thenbuy this album. If you want to whine because it isn't Images, then listen to images. This isn't Images, But this DT.
