I like the album cover a lot. Classy, even elegant, but with a really intriguing juxtaposition and an in exact idea Of Symmetry. It looks like the robot is reciting Hamlet!

Sample sounds good, nothing mindblowing, but solid DT riffage. Also like the title, which could be simplified as either Speed or Velocity.

I hate song teasers. We know the track is finished just give us the whole damn thing lol.

They must really be struggling with concert attendance to bust out another anniversary themed show after already doing one last year.

Maybe or just smart choice? I think they have been slowly trending downward since mp was booted/resigned. Or at least when this former fanboi checked out.

Folks love sfam so it makes sense. You have to wonder how much momentum they lost with the astonishing.

Like others said, that cover is awesome. I guess thats still hugh syme?

i think the Astonishing had a hand in the numbers.  And MP no longer being there is another blow.

I don't as long as i enjoy the record.

so we shall see.

Honestly the cover is what it is. I like it but it feels a bit like a cheap YA sci-fi book cover.

HOWEVER!

I was digging that groove in the teaser and can honestly say that 36 second clip was better than the entirety of The Astonishing. I f***ing hate that album.

I enjoyed the three albums before that one a lot. I am ready to open myself up to another Dream Theater album.

I do have such a weird relationship with this band though...the oddest I have ever had with any band!

your relationship with DT frustrates me more than it does you, lol.  like WAY more.

on paper they should be a straight Segue band, lol

What I really feel annoyed about is that every now and then I spin an album and I just LOVE IT! Like Sonata Arctica level love. And it's the BEST ALBUM I HAVE HEARD ALL DAY!

Then I play it again with wild anticipation and...the same record...I hate it.

I try another album...I hate that sound. Then I get an urge to listen to a band that album reminded me of and more often than not I become obsessed with them instead.

I can't seem to really click with the band and their identity. I can't really tell you why. You know my music doesn't have to be ground-breaking to be enjoyable. But the level of skill DT has is undeniable but there is something so ridiculously ugly about them, and I can't tell you why.

But then I get that random desire to spin some DT and for a short while it is PRECIOUS.

Go figure.

I will say though that I tend to never have any issue with Falling Into Infinity, Train Of Thought or Black Clouds And Silver Linings.

I wonder how much they will play from Scenes From A Memory.

Too many concerts for me next March. A drive to Dallas may have to happen.

Weird is right.  I go from "This is the best f'n music to ever hit my ears!" to "yuk, turn this shit off".

Didn't listen to the sample, but I'll pop it in the CD player when it's released and I'll catch a show in April.
