Winner of the 2020 Dumbest Comment Ever Award
Dream Theater historically works very fast. The last time they really spent a lot of time carving out an album, we got Scenes From a Memory. They did take some extra time with The Astonishing, but it seems that was more due to production delays than them spending extra time on the compositions. I hope they didn’t rush through this new album and instead took advantage of having more time to work on new stuff.
