Our deepest sympathies to you....we welcome you with open arms to our Board here.  It is never easy to lose a loved one.  I am so very sorry your wife lost her courageous battle.  You are a strong man and a wonderful husband for being by her side. 

I sympathize with you as just over a year ago, I lost my Brother suddenly at 50 yrs old.  A couple of months later, my Mom was diagnosed with breast cancer.  I am happy to say that (Thank God) after her lumpectomy, chemo and radiation therapy, we can say she has thus far, come out on the other side.  And yes, Dream Theater's music (along with a few other bands for me) has helped a great deal, not only as an outlet, but a sounding board.

I don't know you who are .... but I will include you in my prayers.  It is nice to meet you.

Let's just hope there isn't a song on the next CD called "I Lost You."

Donna, using a photo of minions to describe an argument just made my day..

Well, if I can at LEAST do THAT today....then I will be happy to make you smile...I love the minions from DM....they are a mainstay here in our household.

PRECISELY, Dargor.....
OK need to report him because I CAN SEE what's going on here. Did YOU not read my post either?  I don't approve of BOTH posts.

 Coming onto James' website and INSULTING DREAM THEATER is NOT COOL.  Okay, Okay, it's YOUR opinion...freedom of speech...but don't INSULT James by saying just because Mike left, the rest of the band sucks...IT'S NOT TRUE FOR A LOT OF US.  How do you think he would feel if HE read that here?   INSULTED THAT'S HOW!!    A debate about music is one thing but I won't take a mud slinging match here...ESPECIALLY against music that the rest of the band is PROUD OF. 

Grow up....there are more things in life to get riled up about without having to insult each other.  Enjoy the pre-Mangini era all you want..I do it all the time, but I am not gonna sit here and pine away for Portnoy.  I have other people in my life that deserve my sorrow.  Portnoy is alive and well and doing great in his other projects.  Be HAPPY for him.  Period.   

NO MORE FIGHTING.  .  Got it?  Good.

Let's all take a breath here....

Everyone is going to have an opinion that they are completely entitled too.  Some people will love this CD, others may not dig it as much.  The lyrics on this CD resonate with where I personally am in my life.  I for one do NOT miss the "banter" of John vs. Jordan on the "running of the scales"...I love MELODY...I love HARMONY....I do indeed LOVE LOVE LOVE the orchestral sections that are incorporated in some of the pieces on this CD...they are truly MOVING when you sit down and actually listen to them.   Now, I am not saying everyone HAS to feel the same way I do...this is my perception.  This may not be the DT album someone else was waiting for or for that matter, expecting.  And it could be a let down for some...and that's OK to have that opinion.  We were all made would be a boring world had we been made the same people... Wink  And it's ALL good....but remember, this comes from the band's creativity...and there is nothing wrong with them producing an album in the direction that they want to take it in. They spend the money to produce it too, you know... Wink 

...and as for the never ending "Portnoy never should have left" saga....PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAASSSEEEE....let's not beat a dead horse.  The band is well aware at how some of their fans feel, but THEY have moved on.  I know it is an opinion of a percentage of the fans, but you know what?  They moved on....and they did it with class.  I for one, do love to watch Mangini drum.  I was blessed enough to attend the Toronto screening for Live At Luna Park (with Mr. LaBrie present in the crowd) and I was very much entertained by Mangini's drumming.  I just LOVE a busy drummer with an energetic and creative attitude.  Period. 

Now don't get started looking like this:

It doesn't solve anthing.... Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

I am right there with all of you so far.  This album is MESMERIZING.  There is not one song I wanted to skip over that didn't hold my attention.  There were lyrics to a few songs that had me sobbing .... I can't BELIEVE Illumination Theory!!!!!!  I LOVE this song!  What a roller coaster of pure emotion!  I cried because it was OVER!  I have my copy on special order from HMV at our local "Mills" mall up here...praying they get it in right on Tuesday. 

I have run through it twice on the Stream.....I will be scanning some stuff again tonight on my little iPod to lull me to sleep.  I have also found a way to hook it up to my auxiliary port on my car stereo...the quality isn't the best, but it's there while I am driving, and this is all I care about for now.

Wow.  Period.

I do indeed love this's emotionally driven and I love the way it was written.  I haven't been able to stop listening to it.  Once again, this band has tapped into my life and where I am found, and has put into words / music what I needed to hear.
