4 stars I understand why this musicians are so criticised. I feel the fanboys should give themselves a break in giving exaggerated ratings to the DT and LTE albums... I love them, they're excellent, but good music is not just about playing high speed solos, insane double bass drums, and that kind of stuff that makes the fanboys go crazy and numb about their idols. I personally think there are lots of better bands out there, but that doesn't make me stop appreciating the great musicianship that these guys demonstrate in their DT and LTE albums. I love this album because of its freshness, its great songs that don't seem to have been written in less than a month.. You can't take that fact out of the picture.. this album is very riff-driven and that is the kind of album that gets stuck on my head. The songs in here are all excellent in my opinion and petrucci does a better job here than in most of his DT albums... On the other hand, Jordan Rudess sometimes gets me sick with his fast playing, but I can't deny I do love it when he doesn't abuses of it.. And portnoy... wow he plays too damn good and NO ONE can't deny that... anyway.. Tony Levin plays an excellent part in filling those great riffs that end up 'making this album.. I think we all know these guys are good at what they do.. but the point is that they get to work together pretty good to accomplish some great music.

Back to my first point.. I understand that a lot of people gets sick of the fanboys praising these guys for not 100% valid reasons, but to all of you... C'mon! this is excellent stuff and the fanboys may be right on some of the stuff they say! peace out
