5 stars Easily the best prog album of the year, actually, easily the best Dream Theater album since Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence. Everything that makes this band "Dream Theater" is there. I'm not talking about crazy sections, mellow parts, unique signatures, mind exploding riffs... These things are still there, but I'm talking about the atmosphere, each epic movie that Dream Theater is presenting us with every new album. For the last 11 years, these "movies" were great and enjoyable. But we always had that, there are hundreds of albums that are just great. Yet we were missing epicness, we missed the musical impact that Images and Words and Scenes From a Memory created. Until now. This self-titled monster is hard to comprehend, it has a very thick shell, hard break in, but once you do, it is one of the most ravishing albums you can ever hear. Practically a masterpiece like most Dream Theater albums, and this is just the immediate response. Once the dust clears, once the real audience understands what this album brings with, it will be named as a source of pride milestone in the forthcoming years.
