2 stars What can I say, this is the album that officially made me stop caring about future Dream Theater work. You would think that a band as aged as Dream Theater would be able to establish a powerful sound, yet they feel so uncomfortable on this album playing it, like it's just not them. You would think that the band had matured enough to find itself and its purpose, not just toy around with their instruments and see what comes out in 2 weeks. That's about how much time they spent on this album, two weeks.

Music can be interesting and groundbreaking on the spot, but please, put some effort into your work, don't just throw a few songs on a CD and expect people to buy it because of your name.

The music itself? Mostly it's Metallica with Labrie instead of Hetfield on vocals. Nothing here is progressive or interesting for that matter. In the Name of God is one of the few halfway interesting tracks, but they manage to screw any time of emotion contained in the track with the cheesiest keyboard section.

Whatever creativity this band had died with Kevin Moore's departure.
