3 stars Lets start by this phrase: I really like Dream Theater. But this album Pretty much disappointed me. My first encounter with this band was when a friend of mine heard im into classic 70`s prog and asked me to try some prog metal. So, he gave me his copies of Images and Words and Scenes from a Memory. Those albums blew my mind specificaly Scenes from a Memory. So i continued looking for thier albums and found Train of Thougt. This album literaly led me to a train of thoughts. As a metal fan i give this album 4 stars great heavy metal album! But as prog fan, well its something else. One of the things that i dont like in prog metal is calling a band PROG METAL when they arent prog. It is basicly what i felt with this album. It does have progressive elements here and there especialy with its second half. But most of the album is Modern Metal. I was also dissapointed with the albums instrumental Stream Of Consciousness. Most of Dream`s Instrumentals i really like but this just doesnt get it for me. Not Energy Pumping enough and not that much Progy. I hope they will make it better with thier upcoming album.
Bozit | 3/5 |
