Dream Theater – New Album Coming Soon | Official Site
If you've got a car outside, they'll allow you to go out and put it there (quickly).
I like a lot of their stuff, but I was a bit disappointed with their sound warming up for DT the other day. The mix was [b]really[/b] muddy and the drums came through waaay too much and most of the time I almost couldn't hear the vocals, but I guess that wasn't entirely their own fault; they're probably playing with the same settings as DT and no proper soundcheck (?). It was fun to see them though. A lively bunch of dudes, for sure.
JP: My point of view is rather conservative. I'm no liberal. When I write about spiralling towards disaster, it is about people who profit from the system and live off of it. The song begins with the words "Standing on the backs of angels". The big thinkers, the creatives and the people who work hard keep the country alive, whilst there are others who just let themselves be tagged and dragged along. The american dream means working hard and being your own man in order to fulfill your own dreams, people who have won their lives through hard work and a belief in something. The new american dream works differently. It's based on taking advantage. It's no longer working hard, but rather living out of the common welfare. These people burden the system and bring it down.[/quote]
I disagree with that 100% and I find it unfortunate that he's got that kind of an opinion (it's ill-informed, naive and prejudiced and I could go on quite a bit as to why), [b]but[/b] I can ignore it and just enjoy the music, just as I do with Rush, whose lyrics are riddled with "objectivist" garbage.
I think it's a terrible song and I hope they never play it live again.
I'm also wondering how this works.
1. Do you get the ticket along with the other stuff when you get there?
2. In general admission venues, do they at least have a reserved area for us right in front of the stage?
