Just came by to post some additional reviews of our album, which is receiving consistently good reviews across the internet.
Here's one by Raffaella Berry, a writer for the DPRP:

Well, this album, for me, as a person who has followed Dream Theater since they put out their first album, is the best thing they've released since 6DOIT.
Fact is, you just can't please every fan.
It was a good show and the performances by all were excellent. Unfortunately, for me, the volume was excessive. I cannot understand why they would feel the need to play that loudly, especially in such a small venue.
The last time I saw Dream Theater in the Orpheum Theater in Boston it was "An Evening With Dream Theater" and they were touring in support of 6DOIT.
The volume at that previous show was perfect. I could hear everything very clearly.
At the show on 10/10/11, however, the mix was definitely hindered by the excessive volume. Vocals, in particular, were almost non-existent in the mix, especially in the beginning. It improved slightly by the 3rd or 4th track, but overall, I thought the sound could have definitely been better.
What does everyone think?
New music for fans of Dream Theater, Transatlantic, Spock's Beard, Symphony X, etc.
