Havent listened to any DT after ToT how does this compare to ToT?
I'm trying really hard not to listen to it until I have the actual CD on my hands (even though that's still a month or two away), but I'm glad to hear some positive reviews. Anybody know what the six cover songs are going to be on the special edition???
Mike said something like that they do backing vocals in studio because they do them live too so to even things out, instead of trying to sing labrie's own backing vocals (which they can't)
Oh and, Labrie sounds better than ever. His vocals grew on me after all the listens so I can't complain. There's plenty of metal with awful vocals out there anyway.
the AA song was terrible, cut and paste from the other three as someone said. otherwise, nightmare to remember is by-far the best track on here.
The Count of Tuscany is too awesome.
Petrucci is singing? I thought Mike Portnoy did all the backing vocals?
01. Stargazer - RAINBOW
02. Tenement Funster/Flick of the Wrist/Lily of the Valley - QUEEN
03. Odyssey - DIXIE DREGS
04. Take Your Fingers From My Hair - ZEBRA
05. Larks' Tongues In Aspic (Part II) - KING CRIMSON
06. To Tame A Land - IRON MAIDEN
Only heard the two songs that leaked first. A Nightmare To Remember was alright and A Rite Of Passage was horrible. Absolutely horrible.
they now both do them in the studio, and have both been doing them live for years
better do this fucking properly
great. another dream theater bore-a-thon
^Nobody's forcing you to listen nor post in this thread. Go read a book and progress as a human being.
OT: The last part of the count of tuscany (+ the solo) is orgasmic.
I kind of like it. Pretty good album. I don't usually like them.
Hmmm...Interesting choice of covers. Biggsy's right, I hope they do Stargazer proper justice. I like that they chose songs that weren't obvious choices. Especially like that they chose a Zebra song (Although in that case, I kinda wish they would have gone with the more obvious choice. I bet they could really rip it up on Who's Behind the Door). Interesting! Think I just may have to shell out the extra cash for the special edition.
I listened to it last night. The first track is kinda meh besides the hilarious attempts at dimmu borgirisms, the second track is fucking terrible, the third one is a serviceable power-ballad, the fourth one is a fun regurgitation of Glass Prison/This Dying Soul (I think it's a bit higher energy than those two, at least for the first 4 minutes or so), the fifth one is pretty annoying and reminds me of the LTE songs I hate like Universal Mind, and the last track is pretty good despite being too long. I dunno if I'll listen to it again, but it's pretty good. About the same thing I thought about Systematic Chaos (wayyyy better than Octavarium, but not something I listened to more than 2 times). I think I've just grown out of dream theater.
To be honest with you, I just guessed who was doing the second vocals. But get this....it isn't back vocals....he sings....ALONE!! It's DREADFUL! He sounds like he is stuck in 70s style singing, which is, as we all know, SHIT!
P.S. Count of Tuscany is still the best track after a few listens. And I don't mind Rite of Passage....it's standard DT...
