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.

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

They can afford a lawsuit now that they're back in the spotlight.

It's Underture by The Who, only with infinitely worse material.

there's this weird weed vender right by my apartment somehow. oooh that was the sign, as this album is only enjoyable when you're intoxicated.

This is nothing compared to how they had a suite of songs that lasted for an entire fucking decade across like five albums, only to conclude with a song that just plagiarised from the preceding parts.
