    Wow is that really John? Sadly, I have had no desire to get the newest album from them (haven't even heard a track from it). They kinda lost me on the last couple albums.

    The expression is priceless.

    At least his nu-metal is a billion times more complex than pretty much all the other nu-metal.

    Progressive mallcore is still mallcore. They should stick to covering other people's albums and write a whole album like "Pull Me Under."

    Apparently no one in this thread has even LISTENED the new album.

    But I guess its always easier to just make ASSumptions.

    Don't worry, your Spanish was definitely more clever.

    I've heard it, btw. It sucks. Dream Theater has made a career out of sucking.

    Sorry our views differ there. I preordered the album, downloaded it when it leaked, and have it. I also reviewed it.

    DT have always been trendy dressers, though. Does anyone here own Images and Words? Check the liner notes. :lol:

    I think it's their best in a long time. They don't really go too over-the-top like on the past few, it's pretty much a straight forward progressive album.

    BTW, Under A Glass Moon. :headbang:

    I don't see anything progressive about it. However, after this "revelation" with Octavarium I noticed that Dream Theater haven't really been progressive since Liquid Tension Experiment.

    They defined "prog" metal, and by now I hate them for it.

    I really don't give a flying fuck what kind of clothes he's wearing. Octavarium is almost completely devoid of any nu-metal bullshit, and easily on par with the band's best work. The title track is probably the most prog thing theyve done.
