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.
The forth track, The Answer, is a very odd track. It’s the lead character, Gabriel’s, ummm …. coming out. OK, not like that. It’s Gabriel setting the stage for his character as their savior. Very short track, ~1:55s
This is a track that I don’t think I can really talk about. It’s pretty straight up. And really is all about setting up who Gabriel is from his stand point. Simple.
