JP answered a question about the name of the album. It helps to clear - or not - some of the discussion in this thread. Quoting an entire post by RHDOTR, from MP's forum:

"RHDOTR: BTW, in an interview with Israeli online metal magazine, Metalist (yeah, original name indeed), the interviewer asked Petrucci (it's written in hebrew and I just translate, so maybe there are a few wrong words choise, but I think I kept the meaning the same):
 
Interviewer: "The name of the album immediately connects to last year's events - A Dramatic Turn of Events. is it possible to guess that the musical direction evolves in a dramatic way aswell, now that Mike Portnoy is not part of the band?"
And Petrucci answered: 
"It's clear to me that it's possible to directly connect the name of the album to everything that has happened with the band in the last year, but it's not the case. the name is connected to the lyrical content of the album, and to the fact that most of the lyrics are about big changes that has happened in history and now in the world (socially, politically, spiritually). The songs are actually about that, and the title of the album represents that fact, but at the same time, I have to confess that it's clear that it's possible to translate it the way in which you talk about - although it wasn't the meaning."

Sounds like the thematic material for the new album is pretty deep.

I believe that the new album is very profound, multifaceted, and I love the interviews with JP, I think, he is not only a gifted, brilliant guitar virtuoso but also a profound person and musician. I am very much looking forward to the new DT album, and I am very curious about the songs "Outcry" and "The Shaman's Trance" ... but ... all song titles sound very intriguing ... excellent ..

This song. I have 3 minutes left, and I don't want it to end. This is what I was looking forward to hearing.  Grin

If 'On the Backs of Angles' is any indication of what this album is going to be like, then I am stoked! I love the song, think that DT sounds fantastic! Great to hear James 'singing' again and not screaming....and oh yeah...there is a Bass player in DT.
  Great Job Guys! Cannot wait until Sept.!
