5 stars This is the most defining Dream Theater album. It has everything DT does on their previous albums rolled into one super album. It's got prog metal (Root Of All Evil, Panic Attack) The popish dt ballads (answer lies within, sacrificed sons) and of course, the epic. Octavarium that concludes and recaps teh album: (lyrics from the song octavarium)

(Root Of All Evil) Our deadly sins feel his mortal wrath Remove all obstacles from our path

(The Answer Lies Within) Asking questions Search for clues The answer's been right in front of you

(These Walls) We try to break through Long to connect Fall on deaf ears with failed muted breath

(I Walk Beside You) Loyalty, trust, faith and desire Carries love through each darkest fire

(Panic Attack) Tortured insanity A smothering hell Try to escape but to no avail

(Never Enough) The calls of admirers Who claim they adore Drain all your lifeblood while begging for more

(Sacrificed Souls) Innocent victims for merciless crimes Fall prey to some madman's for impulsive designs

(Octavarium) Step after step We try controlling our fate When we finally start living it's become to late

Trapped inside this Octavarium Trapped inside this Octavarium Trapped inside this Octavarium Trapped inside this Octavarium

If I had to pick one dt album to give to someone, it would definately be this, it's got something for everyone. 5/5, i hope that they keep up the good work.
