5 stars Heavy Dream Theater done right.

This was my first Dream Theater, and I absolutely love it. Portnoy constantly talks about how he wants to do Metal music. Well, this is the perfected "Heavy" Dream Theater. Where Black Clouds and Systematic Chaos failed miserably, Train of Thought succeeds.

This is an album that I break out on my darkest of days, struggling through the lowest of lows. My anger and frustration vents through this album. Needless to say I don't really get a chance to listen to the album since its rare that I'm that pissed off, but regardless, this album kicks ass.

While its aggressive and ferocious, its also has depth and emotion to it. There aint no lyrics about Dark Masters and Vintage Wine and all that crap. Here, Labrie's voice blends perfectly with the music, somehow they did it, and it works. This is a great example of a band trying a different sound, but retaining the quality. I've said it a million times, DT or any band can go in ANY direction they want as long as the quality is still there.

The only downside is that I rarely listen to it, since every time I do, I feel feel compelled to crank the volume up and I seriously don't want to go deaf. But seriously this is how you have to listen to Train of Thought. Blasting it on max volume.

As of 2011, Train of Thought is last excellent DT album in my opinion, and what follows, I refer to as the Mike Portnoy Trilogy of shit (Octavarium, Systematic Chaos and Black clouds). Albums which I try to ignore.
