"circles and rings, dragons and kings" — this line doesn't sound as cheesy anymore after this

This thing about New World is especially funny if you're from New Zealand, because a major supermarket chain there is called New World.

But hey at least they're beginning yet a-fucking-gain.

the phrase New World reminds me of Death Note.

death note ended pretty pathetically too, so i guess it's fitting.

A "user review" from metacritic:

9/10

If you are a longtime DT fan, who really enjoyed the more reserved sense portrayed in earlier DT work, then you will enjoy this album! Combining the conveyed emotion alike to Scenes From A Memory, The Astonishing really draws emotion from the listener and makes you remember that one loves music because of the way it makes them feel, not because of how fast or crazy the band can play. A true epic, The Astonishing really pleased me and put Dream Theater back in the spotlight, making me want to go see them live for the U.S. tour.

Thanks for your input, LaBrie.

I've only read like first 2 volumes. sorry......(especially if you're Japanese, you're somehow expected to be manga/anime expert, which I'm clearly not)

Considering how fucking long this album is, it's hard to believe this last song is the longest bar two.
