4 stars As a musician i'll say this. there were some things i have found that i personally might not included. But then again i am not in Dream Theater. I know in my own experience that certain things do influence me to write one way or the other, but my style is very deeply imbedded in the music that flows as a result.

As far as the metallica references, heavy guitars do not mean metallica. Also as a musician i find that on different projects i usually like to find new ways to be creative, and i think DT has accomplished this very well. But there are times when i like to kick back to some old familiar style for the sake of it.

I agree with another guy who said each album should be veiwed respectfully. I still find even more things to appreciate everytime i listen to them. AS a drummer, i can't help but listen with amazment to the talents of these guys, especially portnoy. I think if you only knew how hard this stuff is to play you might not think that way at all. which is why i used to be a heavy metal guy, but now am into prog. rock--metal now.
