SO... I've been gone so long (and was here for such a brief time when ADOTE was released) I feel like I need to reintroduce myself. Been away due to helping my family adjust to the totally sudden death of my mother.

Now I'm back and Dream Theater has released this album for streaming and all I have to say is this: I've been listening to them since 95. Bought Images and Words, then realized that Awake had come out. It's been non-stop DT for me ever since. After listening to this album a few times through I can say, without a doubt, this is my number 1 favorite record. It's just... so good it almost hurts. Some best melodies they've ever written, James sounds his absolute best here. I mean... you're not supposed to sound like you're in your 20s when you're 50, kids. The riffs and flashiness are at their all time best and the songs - as songs - are just top notch.

My only problem is... I can't pick a favorite yet. I just can't. Every time I go "ok... that's just my favorite song", I go to the next one and think "Oh crap... that's amazing too".

Magical. Beginning to very end.

James, you and company have made what was a horrible, gutting year, turn out to have something beautiful - in addition to my precious family. I know this is just a record from a band, but this is music and my mother LOVED music. Even though she wasn't a real rock fan, she even loved Dream Theater because she could feel the passion inside the amazing talent. So it's fitting that I now listen to music at its finest from 5 of the most talented men on the planet.

Thank you.

I would LOVE it if they just released a 2 disc bluray with BOTH of these shows put together, plus extras (with, of course, the redundant songs combined). These set lists are just fantastic!

I feel weird, but about 75% of the albums listed in this thread are by bands I've never heard of before.

So for me, A Dramatic Turn of Events is the number 1 album of 2011.

Mike Viola's "Electro De Perfecto" is 2nd on that list.
3 would be Neal Morse's Testimony 2.

Outside of that... I've not bought any new music, outside of a couple of Christmas albums last month.

Wow I feel lame now.

I literally thought that I was listening to the song and another tab in my browser had started playing and advertisement or something. Holy God this is the worst thing I've ever heard.

I've yet to post my review of Chicago, mainly because I've been traveling non-stop for work. But I just wanted to say... this is one of the best shows I've ever seen from Dream Theater. From the production to the performance and energy from each member to the first time seeing MM live. Just a tremendous, incredible evening. My wife and I were just in awe the entire time. The whole band seems reenergized in a way that I didn't think possible. It made me and my wife happy for them in a way that was, frankly, embarrassing because we don't actually know them.

What an amazing night. I look forward to seeing them again.

My wife and I saw them in Chicago and I'm not exaggerating when I say that he was spot on perfect all night. Caught in a Web was unbelievable. The whole show was perfect.

I love them all, but Stream of Consciousness is my favorite because it is just emotionally stirring.

You're all welcome for the link!  Smiley

I thought it was worth posting simply to get Myung's perspective on MP leaving AND on his love for the new writing dynamic. Spoke volumes to me.

I didn't know which ADTOE thread to put this in. It's a great interview JP and JM for both  non musician fans and gearheads.
