I've not heard any of it yet. If it were an all instrumental album I think I'd be all over it. Systematic Chaos except for a couple songs maybe really turned me off to Dream Theater with the rapping Portnoy vocals! Train Of Thought was pretty good overall but there are some strange vocal effects in there too!! I am one of the few who actually like Octavarium.
