4 stars When I first heard this album I didn't think it was extraordinary good, it was more like an average metal album. But after listening to it a couple of times, I began loving it. Dream Theater is a diverse band, universally they show that they are able to change, and come up with new stuff. And they are offcourse a band of extremely skilled musicians. The one thing that makes this a 4star album is the lack of epic songs. Vacant must not be forgotten, but just take a look at the other albums from DT. They include a huge variety, ToT on the other hand is more like a full heavy metal album, but with hints of prog (sometimes full sections of progressive music) But it's the heavy metal riffs that mostly drives the album. For prog fans this album may be a dissapointment, but for me, a fan of both (that's what DT is, metal and prog) This is an enjoyable masterpiece of music. I'm sorry if i'm not writing perfect english, I'm a 16 year old norwegian.
