5 stars It took me 3 years to fully understand this album, not because the music is complex, but because took me 5 year to have the time to listen it as it deserves.

The music here is not this kind of "finger athletic", no, it's a way to do harmony with all the instruments, Kevin Moore played for the band, not like Rudess, who played for himself; Portnoy didn't try to do a ultra-virtuoso work, but just the necessary to show enough complex and enough feeling to catch you; Myung?, well, as always he tried to do the work of Petrucci but with the bass, a lost bass; Petrucci, good work, working with all the band; and LaBrie, uff, amazing voice.

The best of the album, in my opinion, is Metropolis pt 1, one of the few parts when you are going to listen the bass; low point?, there's no low point.

Great album, a symphonic-metal really great.
