5 stars I bet if any other band not as big as DT had released this album it would be an instant masterpiece but people love to bitch and moan about big bands. They want all albums to sound like Images and Words or Master of Puppets. All I can say is grow up. As for the album itself, its intense and heavy. Its got great riffs and brilliant licks. But the best part is the mix. Bass is out in front of the drums finally. If you like bands like nevermore and opeth, this is the album of the year for you. Lyrically, DT are back in form. This Dying Wish continues the AA 12 step program from The Glass Prison. As expected there is a song about religious atrocities, inspired no doubt by 9/11. Thankfully the whole album is not christian preaching as some expected. Bottomline, its the best DT release since Awake.
