    Despite my undivided love for basically everything Dream Theater have ever produced… They finally lived up to their name and have put on a true theatrical production. I simply cannot wait to be at the opening night on the 18th February.

      Yup, they should have John Cleese on the cover with nomacs flying in the background, subtitled “and now for something completely different”. When I got to the ending of Three Days, I kept rewinding and rewinding, couldn’t get enough of it. Can’t believe they’re gonna play the whole thing live. This album seems to me like a bizarre mix of Queen and Pink Floyd – good for them. I’m glad they moved on and created something fresh and demanding of their fans instead of playing same shit over and over again. And for those who prefer the latter, I have the perfect album for you: Megadeth – Dystopia. See you at the Palladium!

    Well, it is indeed Dream Theater and they are saying loud and clear that they don’t give AFUuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu what people think, they’re gonna do what they do. I love it. Love the music too. It’s not what I’m used to from them, but I don’t expect them to deliver what I want, so it’s always a nice surprise, unlike many people who are going to be pissed off something fierce because DT didn’t give them the album they wanted. lol

    Boy are they gonna be upset with what DT delivered. lol

    Finally got through this beast of an album. For those who are unhappy, they told people this would be completely different. I think they finally shook off the remnants of Portnoy in their writing style and did something unique for them. The live shows are going to be incredible to hear this played out. Too bad they aren’t touring with an orchestra and choir.
    This is the definition of a concept album. Revisited themes tied together over two hours telling a story rather than pieces hopefully tied together like a typical album.
    I wish they had mixed this in 5.1 Surround, maybe a Bluray of the tour?

    This album is garbaaaaage.

    Rule of thumb:

    If you force yourself to compose 30 something songs for a single conceptual album, you risk quality over quality BIG TIME, and that’s exactly what happened, Octavarium, for example, has 8 songs, and it’s overall good, now you want me to quote Image and Words or Awake?, classic masterpieces with the right amount of tracks.

    Michael Jackson wanted to do it with the Bad album, Quincy Jones told him NO.

    34 songs for album is and WAS overkill, they tried, yes, BUT THEY FAILED SO HARD I feel bad for those who preordered the album.

    This is not Prog Metal, is it Rock perhaps? I guess, and BEFORE YOU CALL ME CLOSE MINDED, consider than DT saying “This album will be different”, isn’t the same that “This album will be good and shame on you if you don’t like it”

    Yes, they deserved the right to do whatever they want, but boy oh boy, I know you can’t ask for another Metropolis, or Scenes of a Memory, of SDOIT (A lot of examples), but when doing this, you realize they grew up from their own tastes, which is ok because they are the composers, not their own fans, but it’s just awful.

    Memorable songs:

    Gift of Music – Moment of Betrayal – Lord Nefarious (I guess) – Our new World -Astonishing ????? (I guess??)

    If you wanted reasons to buy an album from indie prog metal bands, instead of buying this album, look somebody’s band on Soundcloud or something, and buy their music.

    I was actually gonna go see DT perform this new album live, but I WON’T.

    You can’t beat Metropolis, Take the Time, ETC ETC ETC

      I’m sorry but I’ve listened to this three times and I’ve been a fan since Scenes came out and I have to say this is the best DT album ever made. Yes the album is completely different, but it moves like an actual Opera. This isn’t exactly a straight forward prog metal album. Surrounding this whole album is a concept of emotionless, electronic, machine-made music having a negative impact on society and is practically promoting the great concept albums that defined a generation. While this will never be The Wall, let’s look at that album: There are plenty of tracks on that record that transition the story and aren’t actual songs. Same with this one. It has recurring themes that pop up across the entire record and they all relate to eachother. It’s as if the album is – in the most intricate way imaginable – saying up yours, Skrillex, go back and listen to 2112, Thick as a Brick, The Wall, and Tales From Topographic Oceans. This album, like Awake was when it came out and was attacked by die hard fans of that time, a grower. It isn’t just a pop in your car, and jam to record. If they wanted to make an album like that, they could, but I applaud them for actually doing something different and, for once, I cannot predict where a newer DT album is gonna go. Will it be everyone’s cup of tea? No, but for those willing to give it a shot, there’s emotionally driven movements that drive the message home of the need for actual musicians to be heralded again as they once were.

      “I feel bad for those who preordered the album.”

      LMFAO that’s the most ridiculous statement I’ve ever read. Just because you fail to see the genius that this album is doesn’t mean others will be as ignorant.

    I’ve been a DT fan for 20 years…. and I am not impressed. Yes, it’s a beast. But it all sounds so similar, very little experimentation and most songs are piano intro , then vocals then full band.

    Not even gonna make into the top 8 DT albums for me.

    Sadly, this just isn’t going to be very memorable. I was all excited for this, but I’m disappointed. Maybe it will grow on me. I will say that disc 2 is way better than disc 1.

    Been DT fan for 16 years, this is not even close to what they have done in the past, yet it’s a great album, I loved it. I’ve listened the album at least 20 times (working / gym / driving) and it only gets better and better. Can’t stop listening.

    This is an album I’ll definitely buy and most definitely one of a hell show I don’t have any plans to miss.

    Okay, so no one has to agree with my opinion, but I think this is one of the best albums Dream Theater has put out in recent memory. I am not jumping ship and saying that this defeats Metropolis Part 2 or Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence, as it is way too early to say something like that, and it wouldn’t be true…yet. However, if those two albums are in your top 3 or top 5 dream theater albums, I believe that you will love The Astonishing. You have to come with an open mind, and understand that they wanted to do something completely different. I’m not saying everyone will love it or even like it. This album does not contain 34 songs of pure Dream Theater metal or epic long songs, but it contains songs that all work together in a cohesive, emotional harmony. This album has a lot of piano, and they even said they wrote it around Jordan. In my opinion, some songs are a bit of filler (good filler I might add as there is some interesting aspect even to the filler type songs), but I feel that they are stepping stones for the greater songs of the album, and help the story flow. Like its all on the opinion of the listener. Some may find all of those songs completely useless. Some others, like me, appreciate the rock opera concept and listen to all of them with open ears, and they just all have interesting songs. For example, the song Ravenskill could have been excluded, but it wasn’t, and it has a sort of spiritual feel that I wasn’t fond of, but on second listen, listen to it quite often, and its not even in my list of the best songs on this album. The story is great, it helps to understand it because it makes the album even better. James Labrie, like everyone is saying, is the real MVP of this album. He uses different tones and voices to portray the different characters, and this is probably the best vocal performance he has put out since he hurt his voice. John Petrruci did a fantastic job of putting this together, and his guitar work on here is spectacular, always keeping it interesting, but not being bombastic like other albums. Jordan Rudess has some of the best piano work he has done on here in a while, absolutely beautiful. John Myung and Mike Mangini are more of backups this time around, but I feel for a concept album, they didn’t have to be anymore than a strong foundation, which they are this time around. More interesting licks from both could have been there, but it can be forgiven. Honestly, regardless of what others choose to think of my opinion, I will cherish this great effort they have done. They did this without making it overly stale (IMO), creating a full story to follow, keeping it emotional and giving all the fans bits and pieces of Dream Theater thorughout the years of their career, a truly fan dedicated type album. They have finally broke out of the Portnoy shell and created something very unique, and while it would be virtually impossible to put this as my favorite Dream Theater album ever, it is one that could certainly be in the top list overtime. I only have a handful of songs on here that I wouldn’t listen to often unless I was listening to the album again, but here are my favorites from the album. The Gift of Music, Dystopian Overture, Lord Nafaryus, A Savior in the Square, A Tempting Offer, The X Aspect, A New Beginning, Moment of Betrayal, Hymn of A Thousand Voices, Our New World and Astonishing. I do have other songs I like, but these are my absolute favorites.

    It’ s an excellent album! I love it! People, what do you hear?????? It´s the best since “Six degrees..”. Emotive, well-telled, excellent music and LaBrie’s voice complements perfectly with the sound. I repeat, I love it.

    I feel the album is a little long winded but the writing is still decent. It seems a lot of people just want old – mid career dream theater back and that is a shame because they probably wont get it. Overall I thought the album was pretty good and provides an enjoyable listen which for me Dream Theater has always done.
