There is probably no other band on earth like Dream Theater. Bringing together so many different styles of rock and metal, effortlessly bridging sub-genres often within a single epic, multi-dimensional composition. There are elements of other bands' sound within "Black Clouds & Silver Linings". Within one song it is possible to pick out the influence of legendary bands such as Rush, Queen, Pink Floyd and Metallica, whilst retaining Dream Theater's individual sound. The album itself jumps from hard riffing and growling vocals to wide, expansive prog-metal, melodic, near-populist balladry, making it an engaging and often thrilling listen. It's the eclectic nature of this album and the superb performances from the band, especially guitarist John Petrucci, which make it such a resounding success, especially after the poorly received "Systematic Chaos".

There are six tracks on the main album, only two of which are less than ten minutes long. The album closer, the brilliant Rush-esque "The Count Of Tuscany" is only less than a minute shy of hitting the twenty minute point! It is, therefore, almost impossible to talk about the individual songs in all but an overview. Such is the complexity and varied nature of each song, you could literally write an essay of musical criticism about each one. However, what I will say is that, from start to finish, it's a extremely good album. It is rare that you get music this powerful heavy and yet containing so much melodic beauty. Even the covers on the bonus disc are well worth listening to - I especially enjoyed the Rainbow and Queen tracks. Dream Theater are firing on all cylinders with this release and it stands proudly amongst the best of their work over their 25 year career.

More greatness from the gods' that are Dream Theater. If the last few albums put you off, this has brought back their respect.
1. A Nightmare to Remember - Great start to a well balanced album, heavy riffs and a softer acoustic spot in the middle. Amazing solo's from the keyboards and guitar alternating. Some growling from Portnoy and very solid vocals from LaBrie.
2. A Rite of Passage - Some good vocals on this track with a catchy chorus but seems to be aimed at newcomers rather than die-hard DT fans. Some fancy soloing from the guys too.
3. Wither - A softer ballad and a well placed break from the intensity so far. A brilliant solo from Petrucci too reminiscent of Bohemian Rhapsody. Beautiful song overall.
4. The Shattered Fortress - The last part in the AA series which concludes all these songs together brilliantly by bringing in all the old riffs, with some new ones but keeping it entirely fresh.
5. The Best of Times - Very moving lyrics from Portnoy...about his father that died of cancer recently. The opening of a piano with a violin, and then an acoustic guitar, leading on to electric guitar and the whole band. You can really hear the rush influence in this song, amazing.
6. The Count of Tuscany - A new epic for Dream Theater that rivals Octavarium, A Change of Seasons and In The Presence of Enemies. Outstanding work from the guys and you'll have to listen to the song to understand. Yes/Pink Floyd with a twist! EPIC!
However it seems that Labrie has lost a lot of his range but in no way does it stop him from being an amazing singer, and the bass seem to disappear somewhere far too often.
Overall an outstanding album so far and looking forward to June 23rd.

Black Clouds & Silver Linings is fast becoming my favourite Dream Theater of all time. This is easily the most accessible Dream Theater album and very old-school progressive in that it only features six tracks. Each is different and a classic in its own right. As with all Dream Theater albums this one features more time changes than a complete Dr. Who box-set!

Opening track A Nightmare To Remember is a real classic and very heavy but still features some superb melodies. The song is about a car accident and is awesome in its construction and clocks in at over 16 minutes in length. No three minute pop songs on offer here...

A Rite Of Passage is more typical of their recent albums and though good probably the weakest of the six tracks.

Wither has a classical feel to it and is very mellow and a welcome interlude from the intensity of the rest of the album.

The Shattered Fortress is the heaviest track on the album and is Mike Portnoy's final part to his 12-step programme against alcoholism.

The Best Of Times begins with a beautiful piano intro transcending into strings before unleashing into a flurry of melodies. The track is a tribute to Mike Portnoy's late father and another soon to be all-time classic Dream Theater track.

The Count Of Tuscany finishes the album on a high and is a 19 minute epic similar to Rush's Xanadu or Maiden's Rhyme Of The Ancient Mariner. Starting with superb 3 minute intro the song then kicks into gear and goes on to tell the story of the meeting a strange count! Lyrically, this is not on a par with most of their back catalogue but nonetheless this is still a monster track!

Not only the best Dream Theater album but also just narrowly missing out on my Album Of the Year.
