» From "Grade the songs in A Dramatic Turn of Events" // November 05, 2011 4:02:53 AM UTC
My first post here. Got turned onto to DT by my sons, and we have seen them live several times and own just about every album.
While there have been outstanding albums in the past, I believe that Mangini made the band BETTER somehow. Before all the Portnoy fans jump on that and lose the point - I think A Dramatic Change of Events is the most MUSICAL DT album ever, and I do believe that Mangini's drumming lends much to that.
In the past - the band was simply PHYSICAL, and while they had lyrical moments that were epic, the sheer # of triumphant moments on this album are incredible.
Have to agree with the consensus that Breaking all Illusions is just astounding. My favorite section is from 5:00 to 6:00 mark, but others have pointed out later sections.
I won't argue with any of it - we don't need to. They NAILED this album, and I do believe it is my favorite from them. Am I dissing Portnoy? Nope - just hope he finds another creative outlet. Sometimes Change is Good.
Perhaps another Liquid Tension Project?
