I'm just listening to "Dream Theater" for the first time, in a darkened room in 5.1, and it ist just like... WOW! beautiful! Amazing! I love this record.
I have every Dream Theater album ever released, and this one is one of the best from the first listening!
I cannot agree with you about "A dramatic turn of Events", though it's a terrible sound (real garage quality! ), the music is good. I am very happy that the actual album has a much better sound, and the 5.1 is like a preview of ho it could be in heaven ;-) .
