Just continuing to try to wipe Mike Portnoy from memory. They already had this DVD from like 2000 playing all of Scenes.

oooof very true. Im a huge MP fanboy and i didnt even really think about it like that. Either way, was super cool to see MP on Petrucci’s new solo album at least. Id be totally shocked if there wasnt a new LTE album released within the next 5 years or so as well.

Kinda surprised i didnt think about the fact that theyve essentially already released this. Scenes from New York is by far my favorite live DT DVD, and honestly might be in my top 10 of all time.

Live at the Budokan is pretty sick too.

Petrucci and Portnoy still bring bros does give me slight hope for another LTE.

I honestly stopped paying as much attention to DT when Portnoy left.

Train of Thought was one of the most influential albums for me in high school.

Absolutely am with you on all of that but i did give Distance Over Time a fighting chance and I can promise you from Barstool Warrior on is some really solid Dream Theater thats worth checking out. Every other mangini era album is pretty trash imo but DoT almost reaches excellent

The self titled album has some good stuff. Enigma Machine rips.

I’m jamming out to my prog playlist right now and every time this song comes on I have to stop what I’m doing and air drum the intro. Dangerous while driving.

New album “A View from the Top of the World” due out 10/22/21

Excited for this just bc of how good Distance Over Time was, but from reading the press release, it sounds like this was a pandemic record. Most (if not, everyone) was in their own space doing writing sessions/sharing ideas via Zoom. So im cautiously optimistic based on that. DoT was jammed and written while they were all basically living together at their studio (or was it Bear Tracks?) and I always feel that’s when theyre writing at their best.

I still regularly enjoy listening to DoT.

They just need to get rid of LaBrie already. DT is dope when he’s not singing.

i’m hoping the longer tracks and the fact they wrote it separately means more focus on music than vocals
