5.0 out of 5 stars THIS ALBUM IS FANTASTIC, 6 Jan. 2005
This review is from: Metropolis Part 2: Scenes From a Memory (Audio CD)
i know it's just my opinion but i don't believe anyone can fault dream theater at all in terms of talent. how can you say mike portnoy's drumming is rhythmically flat?? it's some of the most incredible drumming ever, the guy's an absolute genius, throughout the album there are constant time signature changes and the whole band keep in tight together with it. i'd like to see you tell that to a guy who's been voted best drummer in the world 3 years in a row by drummer review...
yes, listening to it on face value, the lyrics are pretty cheesy, but when you listen to the whole thing as a concept album and follow it, it's great. it all hangs together so nicely and unfolds consistantly.
all the band playing the same melody does not at all show a lack of cooperation, it in fact shows incredible skill and precision when considering the melody they are actually playing. and i must add that dream theater do plenty of harmonies too.
i didn't once think any of the keyboard solos were guitar solos. you are obviously not very musically minded and that is why you don't appreciate this album as much as the rest of us on here do. it's a shame that ignorance and snobbery has got in the way of your enjoyment of this. it's not a matter of people being young and unaware, true, that is the sad reality of most music 'fans' nowadays, buying absolute trash, but dream theater is definitely a place where you can find true talent. i really can't see a problem with them showing off as they do because they are talented enough to have the right.
this album is fantastic, a masterpiece no less, i urge everyone reading this to give it a try, musicians and true music lovers will not be disapointed.
