Loving Outcry at the moment (maybe even slightly more than Breaking All Illusions... I always cycle song of the moment when getting to know a new album though so Breaking All Illusions will probably still remain top). Honestly at first I was a bit disappointed with Outcry - unlike every other song except BMU,BMD I hadn't heard any samples and for Outcry I thought it had the potential to be my favourite song on the album from the descriptions. Once it got started, I was blown away, loved the intro and main riff, loved the vocals in the first verse, loved the sudden fade away to nothing with Rudess's electronic sound, then the soft bit and the even bigger build up to the first chorus which is awesome. Then comes a heavy verse, and just when you expect another chorus - nope, crazy instrumental section. This is good (although like most crazy instrumental sections, it takes a few listens to appreciate), but at that point I was just dying to hear more of the song I'd been listening to. After what seems like a long, long, time, the instrumental stops and the beautiful, simple piano part begins, with another amazing soft part before a return to the chorus.
I was a little disappointed then, for the first time feeling what people had been saying about DT for a while about a huge instrumental "interrupting" the song. Maybe it's just because this is my first new release as a DT fan so I got to know the songs more slowly instead of hoping for so much on first listen. Because now that I'm expecting the huge instrumental and have gotten to know it, I don't get bothered by it as I was when I was just getting into the beginning of the song. And, crazy instrumental and all, Outcry really is amazing. Only time will tell if it could ever surpass Breaking All Illusions.
But I still do think it's criminal, when you've got such a strong chorus, to only have it twice in the song, so far apart (I think there's nearly six minutes between them, in an eleven minute song).
