Take The Time,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dream Theater (Audio CD)
Like any good prog album , you have to take your time and let DT get into you and then you will reap all the benefits of this well crafted delight.You can't make a snap judgment of this cd on just one or two listens and if you do then you cannot be a proper DT fan and I would view with some suspicion the reviews and reviewers that do.
Every song is strong,' Along For The Ride' is a beauty and 'Illumination Theory' is as the longest piece exactly what the band does best , produce a song that is epic in name and sound.
If you are quick to judge then you are in the wrong game and either haven't a clue about the band or should spend your time listening to Bon Jovi ! This is as ever a really good album, not a classic yet but over time (which DT are good at)it may well prove to be. One thing is for sure, this will sound great live, can't wait!

...in your opinion.
Dont put other people down who dislike the album just because you do like it. Theres a lot of considered opinion on here. I listened to the album plenty of times and tried to like it but cant and I love DT. Tp me *opinion* it sounds very immature. I can understand if people like it though... I wont accuse them of listening to it 'a couple' of times and judging it on face value.
Just because peoples opinions differ from yours... dont assume that they judged it after two listens or were hasty in judging it...
They just have different taste to yours... Not necessarily better or worse.

Very true Gerard, the OP sounds a real fanboy - which is fine, just saying, but shows their reviews should not be viewed as an objective review.
