Yes!!! Last Single!!!!!
Well Dream Theater has been releasing these for the past few weeks and they have all been great and so is this one. This is the second instrumental single and it is mellow slow and quite beatiful so excited for the new album!
I am not a big Dream Theater fan, but I found this on Genius when listening to some King Crimson albums. I am impressed by the cover, as DT spruced up an old classic. Parts one and two of this song are on the KC album of the same name, where part three was released in 1984 on a album called "Three of a Perfect Pair" by the 80's King Crimson lineup, which was very different than the one that did parts one and two. To correct an earlier reviewer, King Crimson has four parts to this song. Part 4 was released on the CD "The ConstuKction of Light". They did a newer version of part 4 on the EP "Happy With What You Have To Be Happy With". This one was done by 90's lineup, including Trey Gunn and Adrian Belew. If you liked DT's version of LTiA Part 2, get the EP "Happy with What You Have to Be Happy With" and listen to "Larks' Tongues in Aspic Part 4". It will blow your mind. Adrian Belew and Trey Gunn are fantastic on it. 10 and a half minutes of power.
whole album on my ipod!
well, i preordered the 3cd set (who still plays vinyl anyway?) and i fully expected it to land in my mailbox by the end of this week. LO! to my exciting delight it came yesterday, saturday the 20th :D and to think on friday afternoon i was wondering why i never seem to be one of the lucky ones to get anything early. so here it is...nightmare is just dark and heavy as can be. totally awesome and very well thought out musically, both in the chord structure and in the song structure, and not to mention the choices of effects on guitars and keys. perhaps it even hints at under a glass moon, which is about driving in the rain. rite of passage we all know by now, so no comments except that i guess they really dont like the new pres and his cohorts in the senate and house. wither is also great, and there is some really lyrical guitar stuff. shattered fortress is the final (i would guess) installment of the aa theme from portnoy, and it is certainly the most solid piece on the album. it musically rehashes tons of their stuff dating back many albums, including stuff that is not so obviously part of the aa entity. it really brings the whole installment full circle and sums it up in a most awesome fashion. the best of time is a gorgeous piece of music, and it is an ode not only to mp's father, but to all father/son relationships. it hints to take away my pain as well in the opening guitar passage. count of tuscany is one of their epic songs that i accustomed to since they first started playing change of seasons over 20 years ago! but lyrically i am not so sure what they are aiming at beyond a hannibal lecter theme. the album as a whole is VERY loud and i had to turn down the speakers. but as a whole it is light years beyond systematic chaos. everything is so well thought out and kevin shirley even returned for some production, which is also outstanding. jp and mp have both returned to musicality, rather than just shredding (toft, anyone?), and they really made a return to their darker writing style of the kevin moore days. alot of stuff really falls into place here, and even though any albm by any band has its disappointments, i am just very impressed with the whole album.
