1 stars Well, this is probably the best album of this band. It's a pity that such great musicianship (everyone of them is really a perfect instrumentalist) is wasted. If they played as session musicians (each musician seperately) their talents would be usefull. Dream Theatre is up to it's neck - drowned in the worst possible music tradition - '80 pathetic heavy metal. Queensryche, Helloween, Yngiwe Malmsteen... Melodies are extremely banal, forms of songs and instrumental pieces are used up, solos are boring, arrangements uninspired. The way that La Brie sings makes it unendurable. Of course it is not progressive, but regressive, but the name "prog-rock" long ago lost it's primary meaning. So I can agree - this is "progrock". Very bad prog-rock. Great instrumentalists. With not a shade of gift for composing. With no musical taste whatsoever.
