2 stars This album is weakest record Dream Theater has ever recorded. Keyboards are poor and uninteresting. Guitar - uninspirated. Production - awfull. Two stars rating goes for good song Sacrified Songs and good track Octavarium, but whole album is far from great. In songs Panic Attack and Never Enough band shows huge lack of innovation, poor guitar playing, sounding like any alternative metal band. Song Octavarium should have standed alone as new album, or together with Sacrified Sons, it would have been good record. Listening to album Awake, or When Day and Dream Unite, or Scenes from Memory, this album together with Train of Thought sounds like amateur work of bunch of metalfan kids. I think that Derek Sherinian and Kevin Moore left this band on the edge of cliff.
