I hope it's better than the last album.  Let's see if they are going to come to South Florida again.

Make it 5. Well, I don't actually "play" much anymore (the online stuff is too expensive, and none of my friends play it anymore, but I still collect the cards). It's the dorkiest hobby imaginable, but the game is unbelievably well-designed, and collecting is still fun.

Sorry to add to the off-topic posting. Embarrassed

oh well, let's just hope for the album to release soon Big%20smile
 
Exactly, the same band I was thinking about when I saw that name.... It's just that Messhugah is really a systematic chaos.... a machine that plays noise in such a concentrated, exact way that makes brutality something worth listening to....DT never could play like that.... Imagine MAster Labrie singing to NO melody.... he would be screwed! Imagine him having to scream fot he whole record... man! that would suck. And I'm LABrie's number 1 defender, but not when it comes to gutural vocals...Big%20smile

I'm going to agree on Johnobvious' opinion about the title: irrelevant, until further information on content (say song/track names). For instance, Train of Thought would yield a pretty progressive or somewhat intelligent label to the album, as a title...but now that we know what lies whithin, it's our very meaning of "heavy", "metal", "shred" and etc. What concerns me more is the album's structure, resembling too much Octavarium's attempt to reproduce Dream Theater's formula, in sliding soft melodies, large epics and straight-forward leanings in their metal influence. Roadrunner will sound a dubious label to promote them, with the heavier tendencies their bands mark, but it also doesn't seem "narrow-minded" - I mean, there's Opeth, right? - and there is something of an "independent spirit" mentioned. It's got all the elements that'll instigate a success, but unfortunately the same goes for the opposite, so basicly the only thing remotely significant in this post is joining Mr. Sanchez, hoping the album won't suck.

This is why you should let Robin save the day...

I'm just hoping they utilize the orchestra again.  As for the title be thankful they didn't name it Portnoy's Complaint.  Embarrassed

The 25 minute epic sounds delicious! Can't wait for the album.

Very true. I don't believe anybody ever said "this album is going to suck because of the name"... they simply gave their opinions on the name, which is really the only thing we know about the album so far and thus the only thing that people can even give their opinions on. It's kind of odd to see people being offended by it, really, though certainly not unexpected.

As for the album, I'm looking forward to it. Another 25 minute epic? Sounds like it will, at the very least, be interesting!

And to the people who are worried about them being on Roadrunner: this is Dream Theater, they were already on a label that tried to pressure them into making a certain type of music and it resulted in arguably their weakest album (Falling to Infinity) and almost caused the breakup of the band. They've made it painfully obvious throughout their career that they won't let that kind of thing happen again, so I don't think there's anything to worry about here.

Falling into Infinity is better than Octavarium and possibly Train of Thought, IMO.

I don't like it when Portnoy uses words like skull-bashing, or chrunching or whatever to describe their riffs. Slipknot has skull-bashing riffs too, so I hear....Ermm

Clap At last somebody agrees with me. A good album with one of DT's best tracks ever (Lines in the sand) but a weak, almost awful song (take away my pain) and the bad just let me breathe.

I would agree Falling Into Infinity is a far better effort than Octavarium was at a more straightforward style. The only song I find to be flat out bad is that awful Desmond Child thing 'You Not Me', though perhaps there are a few too many ballads. Some work well for me though, especially 'Hollow Years'.

Fallin Into Infinity is a good album with a few really bad songs (though I like Just Let Me Breath)

I'm quietly optomistic, for the moment (later I'll be loudly optomisticLOL), that this will be a very good album.
