Let me start with few words about this legendary band. I do realise that there are a lot of DT haters, I don't really understand why. Maybe because DT considered to be a pioneer of Progressive Metal? But let's face it, if it wasn't for these guys we might not have other great Prog Metal bands. Prog Metal without Dream Theater is like Thresh Metal without Metallica or Megadeth. Come on guys, you have to have an open mind and embrace that these guys are legends. New self titled album in my opinion is amazing with amazing melodies and riffs. As much as we all like Mike Portnoy, he is a top class drummer, but it's time to move on as he is not coming back anytime soon and new Drummer is exceptional as well. This album is a masterpiece IMO , all Dream Theater albums are mature and emotional with exceptional musicain skills and techniques. All tracks on this album are unique to DT style, but that's what we love them for. John and guys are all Cream of the crop musicians. Real highlights of the album IMO are Enigma Machine and Illumination Theory. It's not to say that other tracks are bad, they are all great. Please have open mind and try to listen to album a few times before judging it. This album deserves 5 stars in my book. Well done guys.
