    JudasMyGuide ...quite like the Jack of Hearts...

    I liked it! Not as catchy as Enemy Inside, but has better sound (apart from James' vocals, of course) and the instrumental stuff is awesome.

    I am still somewhat afraid - DT12 was somewhat undercooked and some songs there were much shorter than they should be - seeing the length of both the album and the tracks this might be an issue again, but I'm trying to be hopeful.

    Finally getting around to learning the song (trying not to “cheat” with the video). It’s in C standard. Same as Nightmare to remember, honor thy father, and as I am.

    After a few listens...
    The Enemy Inside > Gift of Music > Untethered Angel

    I like the heaviness of the song, the C tuning is great, and I really like the middle section... But the rest of the song is just so unmemorable. A disappointing start so far.

    phantomoftheicarus Nobody can ever hear him call

    Got the new song on now, Labrie's vocals don't seem right because of the effects and I thought some of the song was either bland or typically cliche, but the start of the song was fairly good
  5. The Flash

    The Flash Dennis Wilcock did 9/11

    I thought the song was forgettable. Not a great first impression. Solo was good, unisons were boring. Mangini's drumming continues to be bland.

    I’m down for LTE. I bet it would be better than the new DT album.

    Fair observation. What a bizarre thing to show in a music video.

    Already knew the story behind the lyrics of ACOS but to hear it straight from Portnoy in this new video is different; makes things more real

    They need him back.

    It's only a short segment from his unreleased song Zero Tolerance but I've always loved the tone Petrucci has here. The main lick is also characteristic of him, with just a bit of shred on top. A good little "Petrucci in a nutshell" in my opinion.

    The song still hasn't clicked for me yet. The middle is good but everything else about the song is so dull. It's like DT is on Ritalin or something .It's still kind of hard for me to be excited for this album.

    I like it. It exceeded my expectations by a long way after the lead songs from the two previous albums.

    Nice, hope it's better than Untethered Angel.

    That sounds really good. Excited for tomorrow!

    Metallica influence on that one, clearly.

    The G-F# F#-G-F# at the end of each repetition reminds me of Holy Wars. Thrashy stuff for sure.
