4 stars i heard someone say somewhere that this sounds like DT trying to be Coldplay - what a load of rubbish.

opening with parts VI and VI of Portnoy's 12-step saga, all they way through the last note on the superb title track to close the octave "loop", this is DT almost at their best.

there's a lot of innovation, creative riffs linking various tracks (of the 12-step), the genius of the 24-min title track with all its little nuggets and gimmicks, this is one album definitely not to be missed.

my personal bit of advice: always play it sequentially from track 1 through 8 (maybe skip The Answer Lies Within), this one tells a great story...

stand out songs: The Root of All Evil, These Walls, Sacrificed Sons, Octavarium
