The Astonishing > Chosen

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.

Wow, we are hitting the fifteenth track already. Chosen is a let down track to me. The concept is “The Princess’s words resonate with Gabriel and he remembers how his song in the square temporarily moved Nafaryus the day before” (from DT tracks).

I understand the context of the song and what they are doing, but i think the song is weak. I know, the first really negative thing to say about the album. Don’t worry, the next 3 or 4 songs are really good.
