4 stars Train of though is an album that everyone has a different opinion about. Dream Theater has moved away from their usual style of music, though it still is very complex on some songs, and rather simple on other. Dream Theater's new style is a mix of very heavy guitars and some would say neo-metal, but they still keep it progressive. I think this is a great album, it starts of rather weird and non-consistent but after a few spins it grows on you. If you are a fan of Dream Theater, then you should get this CD, if you are not a fan, then you probably wont appreciate it as much. People who have listened to Dream Theater for a long time will accept the diversity, while others will think it's weird, but i guess that's the way it is with progressive metal. While this is not a buy-or-die CD, it still is great, it really has almost everything, but it lacks the Dream Theater-sound, so that's why it gets a "very good"-rating instead of a "highly recommended", but anyway, just download a sample from their webpage and listen for yourself.
