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 7th track of ACT II, The Walking Shadow, is very much a filler track to me. It perfectly describes, lyrically within the story, exactly what’s happening. I don’t think that it merits a lot of effort.
