Dream Theater – New Album Coming Soon | Official Site
Same here. I live in Québec Canada. I did get an email saying it got lost on its way (was initially shipped on september the 20th). They offered me to reship it or a refund. I told them to reship it (and maybe add a little shiny gold thing with it !!!) and still no package. I wrote again last week and told them to just forget about it and cancell the whole thing and haven't heard from them since. This situation really sucks and I know DT are not responsable or have control over this but it doesn't give a whole lot of confidence for future releases.
1.Bridges in the Sky
3.Build Me Up, Break Me Down
6.The Ytse Jam
7.The Silent Man
8.Beneath the Surface
9.The Great Debate
10.On the Backs of Angels
12.Through My Words
15.Under a Glass Moon
If that is really the case, well I`ve got mixed feelings regarding this setlist. Some of the best songs from the ADTOE are there which is good, except Breaking all Illusions. HoweverI would have put This is the life instead of Beneath the surface if you`re to play a mellower song.
The drum solo is just a waste of song time. We don`t need that to recognize MM is a fantastic drummer. If the guys chose him to replace MP then I`m pretty sure the guy is awesome, no need for a drum solo to prove their point.
Under a Glass Moon for the only encore is where I have a problem. They usually end their show with a bang, a long epic song (In the Name of God, Count of Tuscanny, Learning to Live or something in that vein). For me UAGM is a very good song but not an epic one to end a Dream Theater concert.
I`ll be seeing them in Montréal in a few weeks and maybe / hopefully my views will change after the show, but as of right now I`d give it a 6.5 for originality, performance I`m sure is a solid 10...
Again this post is based on what was posted as yesterday`s setlist.
