Nice video! a bit standard like many metal videos, and similar in light and style to the Costant Motion one, but all of this pales to utter insignificance when compared with the completely awesome look and outfit that James has in the video  ;D 8) 8) 8) he's so badass there!!!!!  :P

i want that coat!  :o

Or at least something of that style  :D



hey did anyone notice the nice bracelet (thing) on James' wrist? at first I thought it was like Slayer-esk styled, but it's a LOT smaller and flatter (Those who have seen Slayer know EXACTLY what i am talking about)

Yeah, that's an epic  bracelet, too (looks "especially special" in the fist up shot, that's a very cool moment)
James has gone totally badass...

Did anyone notice the position of the guys is actually mirrored to the one onstage?

Well, hasn't it always been like that anyway? if I remember videos for Constant Motion and Lie, they are also the way they're on stage.... more or less I assume it's an unwritten rule of any music video to have the band playing the same way they play on stage....

yeah, but this time it's "mirrored" I mean, exactly opposite - JM and JR are on the right (from our viewpoint), and JP is on the left. In this vid, they switched sides compared to the stage

NOTE: RRR announced A Rite Of Passage as "the FIRST video of Dream Theater's upcoming  album, Black Clouds & Silver Linings"
Is there any chance there will be one more?

Awesome video, Dream Theater definitely did this one right. I only think it would have been so much better if the vocals weren't so monotone, James definitely should of been hitting some high notes on the last chorus.

Really? I haven't noticed... I should watch it again!!! I always assumed that they were in their usual stage positions... weird! gotta watch...

This is such an amazing song and video.  Even the "singles" of Dream Theater, which are actually twice as long as so many other band's songs, are incredible DT-like, complex, and take many listens to understand the song.  I can say that after I downloaded it from Roadrunner, I did not like it as much at first, sounded too "simple".  However, I missed so much in it!  By the 5th listen, I realized it definitely has had as much thought put into it as any other song, and it is full of emotion, technicality, and wizardry.  In short, even singles can be DT masterpieces.

Mr. LaBrie sounds absolutely amazing,.  His low growly register is so deep, so powerful, and so moving.  So what if he doesn't hit high notes all ther time?  We know he can do it, and easily.  Let's explore mroe depths of his voice, and so far I am loving the ride!

Oh, and Mr. LaBrie, you have officially become one of the best looking guys on the planet from this vid...haha

The song is very catchy yet still has a lot of the usual DT "signature sounds". James sounds amazing and I loved JP's guitar tone...I'm not a fan of JR's Bebop solo but it is still cool though.

I know this is an old thread, but I just want to say this is my favorite Video of the ones I have seen, it enchants me and lights upon my dark side.

That's exactly why i hate it, this course dream theater is going through.

Im my opinion the best video so far from Dream Theater is the Lie one.

Hello.

Why is it that you hate it? as I have not really elaborated on what I define as my dark side. In my life finding my dark side has been an interesting knowledgeable journey and has given me an overwhelming strength of the mind also a sense of self preservation. Is that not a good thing?
You can never have light without dark, one to think about.

I am not being condescending, just genuinely interested.

any more the concept of a music video is not really needed anymore.  its a formality for the channels that still show videos.

I don't see why people get into such a huffy about which video they like and which they didn't... its just a video, its not a direct representation of the artist. That's what tours prove, not some 3-5 min video.

I still friggin LOVE this song.  Especially the vocal fade in on the first word with Mike doing the voice overs in the background. 
Ssssssssssssssssssssssince the New World Order
Played upon our fears


Gives me goose bumps.
