Astonishing disappointment. Well, actually not so disappointing as I saw the song titles before it was released and thought this looked really stupid.
Mangini has physical talent up the wazoo but couldn't write anything exciting or even interesting and we've got four discs of him with the band at
It's been ten years since the last halfway decent album from DT in Octavarium and it's been downhill from there, especially when MP left. It had to
happen but that was the death knell for this band IMO. After plunking my twenty bucks down for The Astonishing I realized this will be the last time
they get any money from me and I've been on the Dream Theater bandwagon since the early '90's.
I think the proper way to say this is "They had a good innings". It's over, move on, go listen to Haken or some other decent band that's out and about
these days. Heck, Anthrax is a older band and still capable of writing good songs. I just saw them perform two songs off the yet to be released
album(just a couple days out on that one) and they were good songs. Worship Music from 2011 is a killer album. Why can't DT write decent songs
