4 stars Great album, but with some mistakes. There's no more Kevin Moore, but Sherinian did a great job trying to be one more of the band; but doing some totally different from Images.., in fact, the good thing about DT, is that they try(ied) to be original in every album.

So, let's talk about the album: It starts with a great drum, power song, then, the two other songs are, basically, the same song, in my opinion, but still, good, after we find a great suite starting with an excellent instrumental song, with all the good thing of the instrumental songs, then one of the best songs from DT, all what i love from dt in one song: emotion, power, calm, a mixture of many thing, bringing a new flavor, that you can't find just adding the elements, and ending with an emotive song; all the changes in that suite make it one of the best songs of dt.

After we find the lows points of this album, 2 songs that are there just to fill some time, but they are a waste of time, i always skip those songs.

Then another emotive song, another good song, after that, on song like the two bads, but doing it good, that's weird, don't you think?, and a great end after that.

The music is one in all the album, but mixing a lot of things, but doing a good mixing, not a bad one.

CGH Tompkins | 4/5 |
