2 stars As someone encounters multiple situations in life he feels to be hard to handle, this is one. Reading quite a few reviews around the net, I gasp at the herd mentality of reviews. Dream Theater's "Dramatic turn of events" is one of those situations...

First off, I'm not a fan or admirer of any band or style, to me every band has to prove itself once again. I do, as being a passionate musician, am a fan of musicians, Mike Mangini to name a relevant one.

I do love my moments with Dream Theater, but was absolutely disappointed with their new album. I absolutely adore Mike Mangini, would share my gf with him if that was necessary but I was poundered by some questions.

As I listened to the album, I wondered what has happened to Dream Theater, where's the energy, where is the flow where is the originality?

As I learned, after some browsing, it seems drums were written by John Petrucci. Why would you hire the one of the most creative drummers alive and let the guitar player (yesm JP is incredibly talented and even more hard working as a musician/guitar player) write the drum parts????

Listen to Alien Love Secrets and The Ultra Zone, by Steve Vai and the incredible piece of art "Fire Garden Suite" where Vai and Mangini chose cymbals to match pitch... Just to listen to this album and hear Mike Mangini pound some urban, primal rhythm.

You don't need a Ferrari to pick up your suit at the dry cleaners!!!! You need a Ferrari to give you the ultimate ride of your lifetime, unequalled by any other car.

Although I am disapointed by this abum, I hope DT put their minds together, let Mangini in the proces of writing and starts making music again.

Songs we have plenty, it's the music we are after!!!
