You know, I’ve never been that big of a Dream Theater fan, but their importance is undeniable. They’ve influenced and shaped a generation of musicians, and their touch turned Between the Buried and Me from a proto-deathcore group to a fully fledged prog act. Dream Theater are the biggest names in progressive rock and metal for a reason.
With their legacy undisputed, it’s important to remember that the group must have thought highly enough of their new album to make it self titled at this point in their career. Is this album the definitive Dream Theater record? We can find out right now, as Dream Theater is now available for streaming at Rolling Stone.
I can’t listen right now, so tell me how it is. It’ll be out next week, September 24th, on Roadrunner Records.
