    Oh I agree about the crappy Portnoy vocals and horrible lyrics. The Portnoy-barking part neat the end of ANTR is probably the worst thing they've ever done (yep, even worse than Never Enough).

    However, I'd say it's their best since Train of Thought. Six Degrees was my first DT album, so I am fond of it, but ToT was more my style.

    This album has made me forgive DT for Systematic Chaos and Octavarium.

    I think it's fantastic, and the quality of the sound of the recording is just about as good as you could ask for too.

    I've only listened to Disc 1 so far (I can't listen to too much LaBrie all at once ;) )

    The count of tuscany is the best song they have done in fucking years - saves the album for mine. At first i couldnt stand the lyrics, but they're growing on me

    Aye, The Count of Tuscany alone justifies a purchase, but I'm starting to grow fond of A Nightmare To Remember as well.

    Plus, they put up an absolutely brilliant show here on Wednesday, so I'm confident that they're back on the right track after Systematic Chaos.

    Every time I try to listen to it I get about halfway through the 2nd song and just turn it off. I think this is their worst release ever - and that's saying something as I really didn't think anything could be worse than SC.

    ^ Go to Beer, Beer, and More Beer and get into homebrewing. You have a great store in your own backyard, dude. And on your way to the store, put the CD on full blast on your stereo. Then you'll like it.

    :p

    I have yet to listen to it, but I must say, the packaging is the most god-awful design I have ever seen!

    Each disc (there are 3) is in it's own UNLABELED envelope. You slide these 3 unlabeled envelopes into a flimsy sleeve that's part of the digipack. I can't even tell you how bad this is: you need to experience it for yourself.

    What is so damn wrong about jewel cases? Sure they break, but they work and IF they break you can just replace it for like 20 cents.

    I haven't heard it yet, but I guarantee it will be in my next album purchase cart.

    Speaking of beer, I've become obsessed with Belgian beer "Hoegaarden". I absolutely love it! "Leffe" is another great one for a stronger beer, but taste-wise, I give it to Hoe!

    Try listening to the whole thing before making that kind of judgement...

    They are great...I'm not too big on the Dregs tune they did, but as a whole they sound great, ESPECIALLY the Queen medley.

    I felt it lacked the emotion that the original version has so I didn't like it...

    Even the Mundanus Imperium version is better...

    BTW... This song should'nt be redone by anyone!
