The Astonishing > Dystopian Overture

I’ve got a new task, reviewing Dream Theater’s new album, The Astonishing. This should come as no surprise, a fan for 22 years, they are a source of love, life and happiness.

I am going to take a few minutes here, and over the next few weeks, to review in my own little way the 34 tracks on this epic, massive and awe inspiring album. Clocking in at ~2:13m, it’s gonna take a while.

The second track, Dystopian Overture, continues to set the tone with an instrumental track that expands on the tone of the album. Continuing the NOMAS a little, just in presence and grandioseness. The Astonishing.

My thoughts … This track is similar to that in Scenes from a Memory entitled Overature 1928

And now, without further blabbering, bring on track #2.
