Gabriel is such a Mary Sue for LaBrie. This is fantastic.

I'm trying really hard to hold back on rolling my eyes right now...

I love how people act like criticizing "today's art/entertainment" is still some sort of novel thing instead of something that every single generation has done at some point.

Perhaps the part on the Wikipedia page that horrifies me the most is this:

In mid-2013, guitarist John Petrucci began writing a story for a concept album, presenting it to the rest of Dream Theater about a year later. The band and the record label were receptive to the idea, with Petrucci recalling, "Everybody had the 'go for it' mentality. And from the very first meeting that we had with Dave Rath at Roadrunner, when I presented this and even just said the title, he was 100 percent on board.

If the title THE ASTONISHING gets you excited rather than making you laugh... you probably shouldn't be allowed an opinion on anything.

When I heard that the title was THE ASTONISHING, i thought it was gonna be about horrible Bible stories. well this is arguably worse.

I've been pretty harsh on Songs of Innocence, but...it could be worse.

1:30 of Three Days worse.
