Dream Theater: A Dramatic Turn Of Events

Taken from John Petrucci's Facebook:

A Dramatic Turn of Events

1. On the Backs of Angels
2. Build Me Up, Break Me Down
3. Lost Not Forgotten
4. This is the Life
5. The Shaman’s Trance
6. Outcry
7. Far From Heaven
8. Breaking All Illusions
9. Beneath The Surface


Besides the wretched album title, I'm digging some of the song titles. Of course what matter's is the music behind it.

So who's going to drink Haterade first?

9 songs is a good sign. Means they probably kept the majority of them under 8 or so minutes. Considering my issues with later DT releases, that's a good thing. Not that they can't write great long songs anymore, but it's better for me that they concentrate on just one or two 10+ minute songs and leave the rest of the album to shorter ones. Song titles are pretty cool overall I think, though yes, the album title is a bit meh.

I agree. I'm really getting a Images And Words vibe so far.

The fact that Myung wrote lyrics for 3 songs, means at least 1/3 of the album will be good.

The title wouldn't be bad if it weren't so clearly a reference to their own Portnoy bullshit. I fucking hate how self-mythologizing this band is.

Also it appears to be a full concept album.

If it is all about Mike, I'll be pissed

I don't even care that much about the subject of this thread, but this made me chuckle.

On the backs of angels? On the wings sounds better. Otherwise, it looks interesting.
