1 stars I couldn't believe what I was hearing: for the first time ever, I fast-forwarded some parts on a DT album I listened to for the first time. This album is metal, not progressive metal. It definitely could be called System of a Korn Bizkit... They obviously learned to play faster, and want to show it. Mike, shame on you, you sound like any other metal drummer. Snare on the beats (or the off-beats, thank God). John, it's just about B-flat guitar riffs and solo's over them. James: both perfect and made crappy by crappy electronic effects Jordan: where are you? And stop the horror flick thing you started on Metropolis 2... On the plus note, the last one is not so bad, and the first 5 minutes of the instrumental are kind of cool. But what a disappointment. The king started to fall in Metropolis 2, went deeper wit 6doit and has competely fallen now...

Please, DT, listen to what made you the great band you are. Believe me: we don't listen to your latest albums with the same heart. You lost the emotions you managed to keep until Falling Into Infinity... Be prog again.
