    I think I pretty much agree with this. Although I'll take "Through Her Eyes" over "Beyond This Life" or "Fatal Tragedy." And "Home" could have had a few minutes trimmed.

    Reviving this thread,
    have any of you'll heard Black Clouds?




    Overture + Strange Deja Vu = Some of the most awesome 9 minutes

    It's not amazing...but it's better than Systematic Chaos that's for sure.

    I actually liked Systematic Chaos, specifically I found it quite interesting with the wankery with the Continuum on The Dark Eternal Night and The Ministry Of Lost Souls is a nice song. I hate the way they fuck up a song by wankery that is totally out of place and the same can be applied to that song.

    So are either of those albums even close to their '90s output, or is this basically just comparing a brown turd to an orange turd? I haven't listened to either yet.

    The new album fucking rules, don't care what anyone says. A top 3 DT album, easily.

    I pretty much like about half the songs from the first two albums and from Train of Thought, think the last 3 albums blow except for like 2 songs from the whole set, and haven't heard a couple of the early/middle stuff (haven't heard SFAM or Falling).

    Falling Into Infinity sucks, besides Trial of Tears, which is amazing.

    The latter. The most embarrassing part is how 'metal' they're trying to be - the album is full of LaBrie and Portnoy trying their damndest to sound 'tough', much like Systematic Chaos. Avoid.

    I thought the new album was even worse than Octavarium sadly.
    That would make it their worst so far IMHO.

    Trial of Tears is only partly good - it just goes on too fucking long. You Not Me, Hell's Kitchen, and Anna Lee are all better.
