Will the real Dream Theater please stand up!

After an impressive debut “When Dream And Day Unite", followed by two commercially and critically successful releases “Images And Words” and "Awake”, these New York Prog-Kings seemed to have taken a wrong turn on the Progressive Highway with “Falling Into Infinity” but they quickly got back on track with “Scenes From A Memory”. Their new offering “Octavarium” follows the experimental trail that started with “Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulance” with a “less is more” approach and a slightly contemporary feel and sound. After releasing such over the top, bombastic recordings, Dream Theater doesn't have to prove anything to anyone. This may be the first listenable cd to a non progrock fan, but yet it still rocks enough to maybe turn new fans on to the older stuff.
