Re: Dream Theater - A Dramatic Turn of Events (new album)

This is one of their best CD! It could be called i&w 2, but it would be too simple. I have to listen few more times, to say if it is a masterpiece, there are some too technical or too cheesy moments but overally it's a very good album.

Re: Dream Theater - A Dramatic Turn of Events (new album)

I like it much more than Forsaken and Wither, although the symbols here are quite obvious. It's funny if you compare this video to "Lie" how they changed the attitude to USA:)

Re: Dream Theater - A Dramatic Turn of Events (new album)

Yes! I have the latest OSI release: Blood and it's really fantastic, but very different from DT, I have heard also the Ghost Book, film music and it's also very good.

Re: Dream Theater - A Dramatic Turn of Events (new album)

Ministry of Lost Souls is my favourite song from SC. It is an epic song, not a ballad. A 'ballad" is Repentance. And Shattered Fortress is IHMO far better than Best of Time (the main melody is so... naive). I disagree with a lot of people that say the 3 last album was tragic. I didn't like Train of ...

Re: Dream Theater - A Dramatic Turn of Events (new album)

I would have no problem giving I&W or SFAM 10/10. Awake won't get beacuse of "Innocence Faded".Grrrrr... I think the main reason that I wouldn't give a new album 10/10 is that I need time. Some weeks or months. Good music anticipates "epoque" and it is easy to reject at some first few listenings. It...

Re: Dream Theater - A Dramatic Turn of Events (new album)

I have ordered it (with the new Opeth) and I won't listen to YT. I think I can understand Rebel, DT are more natural when they play A Change of Seasons than Octavarium, but I treat it as a tribute to 70s. I mean song not whole CD. They stayed in 70s boundaries not crossing them. I can accept it. If ...

It is obvious that mainstream is evolving very very slowly, because producers are afraid of experiments and people like to listen the same from different bands. He should listen to jazz, fusion, progressive rock, metal, dubstep,...

Re: Dream Theater - A Dramatic Turn of Events (new album)

It's hard to compare O.S.I and DT. Although Blood is great I feel it's almost other genre than DT. But as a listener I need both bands, because they play completely different music

The rest I haven't heard, but maybe I'll try.

Re: Dream Theater - A Dramatic Turn of Events (new album)

Yes, and finally the keyboard is more important like on Octavarium. I must listen few times to say something more, but after 2 listenings to I can only say that A Dramatic Turn of Events surely will be certainly good.

I'm quite surprised by the answer. Most of musicians prefer ear-monitoring. I would suggest it because it improves the front sound and also it is very helpful for vocalists

I was very disapointed with this album. After your positive feedback I gave Iconoclast a second chance, but it didn't convince me. I receive this album as a "Paradise Lost II", but without the freshness which that album had. All those ideas, riffs, chourses seems for me to be copied from previous al...

And I also agree with Raziel and icecab. They've been into mainstream from their very first songs. The least mainstream album for me is was (except ACOS) Metropolis pt II. Innocent Faded, The Silent Man or Hollow Years are very very mainstream. And the influences are good! Sometimes I hear a part of...

Re: Recommend Me: Ayreon

I prefer Universal Migrator part 1, but 2 is also good, especially the Russel Allen track and Bruce Dickinson track.
First part is more calm and in Pink Floyd style


And of course the last album: 0111010101 (or something like this)!! Really really cool sort of a progmetal opera.
