2 stars Loved by some metal fans and hated by prog fans. Strange Evolution no?? (if this can be called evolution) Actually I like this, it has one or two good tracks, but but... this album as a whole entity is nothing, its just music well played (excersise instructions Úr not?) but it has nothing to say, besides it has a dirty sound nothing to do compared with the previous ones. After SDOIT (which i love) i thought they were going to follow that rout, instead they were for the metal rout but without sense. Other thing that i didn't like about this albumis that JORDAN RUDESS didn`t on this one... ah ah.. Did he play her??? ahh ok did he do it like a guess?? no no... PETRUCCI & PORTNOY didn't give any chance to him to get involved in it... what a waste of such a musician!!!. As i said, there are some good track, ENDLESS SACRIFICE has some SFAM feeling some good changes, some RUDESS touches, well... a good, STREAM OF CONSCIOUSNESS is the best track, well structured, a good progressive aproach, (well, progressive is too much for this album!!!). Other thing that i missed was a "grand finale", like learning to live, finally free... you know. IN THE NAME OF GOD is a good song but it doesn't have the DT magic, it has some feeling but... nt enough for DT. Well, i hope a next try but more progressive otherwise... they will be pulling under my faith on them.
