I am going to take a few minutes here, and over the next few weeks, to review Dream Theater’s new album, The Astonishing. IMO, this is a epic, massive and awe inspiring album. Clocking in at ~2h:10m, it’s gonna take a while.
And we are on to ACT II. An instrumental which recaps the musical themes used thus far. It is meant to reacquaint the listener with the music and set the mood for Act 2.
As far as Dream Theater Intro’s go, it’s very good. Not the best, not the worst but still very good.
