3 stars After reading many of the hundreds of reviews posted here i felt the need to add my own. I first started listening to DT a couple of years ago when a friend of mine introduced me to 'Awake' which is undoubtedly one of their best works and my personal favorite. However, i'm not here to review that album but, Train of Thought. First let start by saying that i do occasionally enjoy some metal outfits like Korn and mudvayne but only sparringly. I am definately more of a classic rock/Prog rock fan. Anyway, TOT is a good album, and does not deserve the bad rap given by many of my fellow reviewers. The musicianship is marvelous, although regretably Jordan Rudess is pushed to the back to make way for chugging guitar and thunder Drums. Overall, this disc is pretty good with a couple stand out tracks, Endless Sacrifice and In The Name of God, but is not the Dream Theater we all know and love. Discs like Images and Words, Awake, and a Change of Seasons are better choices for someone to looking to get into this highly talented group.

final review: pretty damn good, but not up to DT standards. Although I really enjoyed listening to this album, I ended up wishing I was listening to awake.
