    Cannot wait to hear what Mangini has cooked up for drum parts on this record now that he is pretty versed in the Dream Theater style. Only problem is....my birthday is the 23rd and this comes out on the 24th :( First world problems I suppose...:lol:

    Holy shit, this is great. Going by how much I liked the last two albums they put out, I'm definitely looking forward to this. They are also releasing Live at Luna Park in November, so I'm getting both for sure! :hbang:

    Well JP did say that it will be a mix of all the things that make them unique. However I really have high hopes for this just because we have Mangini on drums and no more Portnoy growls :lol:

    As long as the drum parts aren't as boring as last album I will be happy.

    They were only boring because the drum mixing wasn't all that great and Mangini didn't have much of a say in the writing process.

    Queensryche has called their new album "Queensryche" and now Dream Theater has self-titled their new album.I guess self-titled albums are the new progressive. Like all Dream Theater albums I am looking forward to this , big time.It will be interesting to see Mangini's input on this one.I hope my home boy, Labrie shows more of his range on this one. I miss the way he used to sing ,like on Images and Awake.But I guess age and other factors are catching up to him.

    ADTOE was boring to me and their single "On the Backs of Angels" was doubly so. The only song I liked was Breaking All Illusions. Too slow, a terrible mix, and it just wasn't up to their usual awesomeness. I sincerely hope that this album will be a million times better :) I am quite looking forward to the drum parts too.

    Can a band who've been lost at sea for the last 15 or more years really stage the massive comeback they need? I'm not optimistic, but I'll still have a listen when it comes out.

    A new studio album, a new live DVD, and a world tour? Well, it seems like I tend to them them my money every 2 to 3 years, so this seems on par for the course...

    Black Clouds and Silver Linings was amazing, ATDOE in my opinion was very below average, mix was terrible, drums sounded terrible, and there were long sections that just sounded like dissonant musical wankery.

    I am so much looking forward to this!
    I know it's fashionable to say that DT has lost it and all, but man, come on, BCSL has some great tunes and riffs, ATDOE is amazing, in my mind they are already back and on the way up still!

    ..... can't .... wait ....

    I really don't understand the people who say they've "lost it." Their last two albums aren't my favorites, but Systematic Chaos is excellent. Love Octavarium too (for different reasons). Their earlier stuff is excellent as well. It sounds like all of their albums have been a natural progression to me.

    They rarely have "filler" songs (Build Me Up, Break Me Down comes to mind as the only example I can think of) and that makes me happy.

    Really interested to hear how this sounds. JP and Co. rarely disappoint (at least IMHO).
