Ended up being pretty underwhelmed by this. Definitely doesn't need to be 90 minutes or whatever it is. A few huge highlights though (End of Innocence, When All Is Lost, Prometheus). Not sure there's a lot of "oh, I didn't catch that!" depth to it that would make it better on future listens, but I'll force myself through a few more. I'm pretty sure most of this stuff would be good live, but I just didn't really enjoy sitting down and listening to the album that much.
EDIT: Russell, however, is perfect, as usual.
EDIT 2: They're kind of becoming Dream Theater in the sense that every song has ideas I love and very few songs do I love straight through.
Mortals are mortar and life is the fuse.
