    Here are some critical soundbites from the media about A DRAMATIC TURN OF EVENTS, the band’s 11th studio album.

    “The group’s members are clearly enjoying a rediscovered melodicism and experimentation in their songwriting. Dream Theater digs in with impressive might into hook-heavy twisting journeys like ‘Bridges In The Sky,’ ‘Breaking All Illusions’ and ‘Outcry,’ yet also softens into a vulnerability never heard before on songs like ‘Far From Heaven’ and ‘Beneath The Surface’…Fans, rejoice: The spirit carries on, very much intact.”
    --Chuck Taylor, BILLBOARD, October 15, 2011

    “’Spine-tingling’ is a term that can be applied to the whole of the album… Dream Theater’s stunning new masterpiece, which sees the band – Petrucci, LaBrie, bassist John Myung, keyboardist Jordan Rudess and new drummer Mike Mangini – performing at the top of their game. Mixed by Grammy Award winner Andy Wallace (Nirvana, Rage Against The Machine), it’s a sonic wonder that keeps revealing surprises even after multiple spins.”
    --Joe Bosso, MUSICRADAR.COM, August 17, 2011

    "Dream Theater have done exactly what they needed to do with this album. John Petrucci's production is fantastic ... This is classic Dream Theater, and it's their best for many years. "
