3 stars If you have listen to this album and you think that it deserves 5 stars then you probably are in the wrong site. After prog masterpices like images and scenes this album was a great disapointment for me. 11 minute tracks with some good ideas ruined by petrucci´s uninspired thrasy riffs. The songs would realy sound better if they were redused to 7 mins max. If you never get bored by comon riffs that sacrifice creativity for the sake of agression then this is your album.

This isn´t all that bad though. Stream of consiousness is probably their best instrumental with great guitar work at the melodies (the best of the 9786 guitar themes - riffs on the album) and in the name of god with great lyrics and a clever powerfull structure.

So its 3 stars for me.
