1 stars It pains me to give a album with the name Dream Theater on the cover, a one star rank

sorry, but its the truth, and i too didnt tough this day would come... but anyways

i gotta say this album starts PRETTY well with As I Am, a nice heavy track and somewhat of a nice rythm, and also another of Petrucci's MONSTROUS solos


Next we have the continuation for the GODLY 6 degrees track, The Glass Prison, by the name of This Dying Soul. Even Heavier than As I Am, it would actually be nice to put this on an album, but emotionally speaking, it doesnt changes nothing from the last track and it just keeps it heavy with no high points and the same happens with the next TWO tracks!!!!

Endles Sacrifice and Honor Thy Father just keeps you with that heavy fast and ignorant music. Completely unnecesary. And then it changes to Vacant, the WORST Dream Theater ballad EVER!!!! (I really couldn't found a bad ballad in DT till now) and the main line changes into Stream Of Conciousness, an really nice instrumental if they hadnt made that one mistake - They got it running for WAYYYYY too long, if they cutted a lot of things out of it and made it a 5,6 minute track it would be a lot more exciting, it kind of loses meaning on the middle of it

And to the closure - In The Name Of God

the same mistake of Stream Of Conciousness, too long.

A complete meaningless "samba" part with John Petrucci getting faster than ever. If it Werent for that, this track would be a nice heavy and epic closure

Not worth the money spent, sorry new guys

Dream Theater started thinking that speed DOES matter and that what aint heavy aint good, all of this turned into this boring and fast CD. Perfect with you're beggining to get into Heavy Metal and wants to see how fast and heavy a human can go... but well aint that Iron Maiden eh? Just 30 years newer

If you want heavy music well done, and not necessarily fast -> LaBrie's new work

If you want a nice Prog Metal CD ----> Petrucci's new work

Im waiting for the next album now, and for the first time with Dream Theater, im gonna download to sse if its WORTH buying
