A shame.

That said, the last album, though very tight, seemed a little forced to me. I didn't experience the normal "holy shit factor" that I've come to expect when listening to a new DT album, although the bonus covers disc still totally justified the price for me.

I haven't had wow factor since 6 degrees... I thought "Train", "Octavarium" and "System" all sucked... Even though there were a few songs on BCSL that sucked... I at least loved ONE of the songs... Which is more than I can say for those others... The last album of theirs' that I loved front to back was Falling into Infinity.

Personally ToT and 8vm are my two favorites by them, especially for the title track Octavarium. I didn't like SC too much at first, but it really grew on me. The latest album was a below par IMO. And most of the lyrics were just

Myung has been distorting the shit out of his bass for a while now....

I can understand how someone could hear that as sloppy, as there's a lot of frequencies buzzing around with the distortion....if he were a shit player, it'd be complete noise.

I would say he's used more distortion than *I* personally prefer to hear on a bass, but....I'm not producing DT, so, .... off to me.

At least Labrie has some serious "holy shit" going on with his new solo album:

Jesus Koshchei, was that Labrie screaming? If it is then he should switch to that, since his singing is almost unbearable. The only thing that has kept me from listening to Dream Theater for so long. :/
*awaits shitstorm of neg rep and flaming from fanboys*

Anyway, Portnoy will probably return after a while. Jamming with new people could benefit him and/or Dream Theater in the long run.

Haake or Virgil Donati would bring some new flavor, but MP did SO much more than just play drums. He was such a huge part of the live shows, the media stuff, the dvd's, the fanclubs.. everything. He is a true workaholic in every sense of the word, and I think stepping in for MP in DT will be one of the biggest holes to fill in any job ever (except maybe the president of the United States). I Think Haake should stay with Meshuggah though. They have their own thing, and they should keep doing it and blow our minds over and over again.

I grew up with DT. I bought their first album when I was like 12, and I've bought every album and dvd since. I go to all their shows, and I consider myself a huge fan. For the sake of DT and everybody that has followed them through all these years, I hope MP "finds himself" again, and comes back. JP and MP are two of the biggest reasons why I got into playing music. They need to make music together.

Haake is a great drummer and all but what would make you think he'd be a good match for DT? That's crazy. And also, Meshuggah are actually still making good music - so no poaching him or I will be mad.

+1
I have a modern drummer with him on the cover from a few years ago where he basically says he couldn't even play in his pre chaosphere style anymore. Also, Meshuggah is the only band he's ever been in and his style is very much a part of their sound. Plus, i think DT will probably want a guy to learn their old material so they'd probably want a fast study with touring experience. I agree that Donati would make a good choice, but i think Charlie Zeleny or maybe Nick Divirglio (spelling?) could work just as well.

More Portnoy Drama

BLABBERMOUTH.NET - Ex-DREAM THEATER Drummer MIKE PORTNOY: 'I Am Indeed VERY Sad Over All Of This'

This is ridiculous. Just because he leaves his band to do what he wants to do, people give him shit, and then to add to all of it, he's accused of treating people "like shit". I hate people.
