5 stars The Astonishing. Astonishing? Damn right it is. Love every moment of it. I am one who likes the new direction of Dream Theater. Love their more melodic side. MP2 and 6D disc two have always been my favorites. Every song here is a 5 star effort, except the few robotic sounding ones. The care and perfection put into the production is "astonishing". J. L's. vocals are amazing. He has always has been one of my favorite singers. J. P's. guitar work, as always, is top notch. I really appreciate J.R's. expanded role since Portnoy's departure. His keyboards now play an equal role and he is fantastic. M.M in a word. Superb! J.M. sure did disappear though, better luck next time. This truly epic album is priceless. I appreciate and repect DT more than ever.
