Dream Theater - Distance Over Time

Like the ballads and 'softer' parts on the album, the heavier and quick guitar parts are a bit too heavy for my taste, but I don't consider myself a fan ::). Curious what the fans among us find ;).

I listened to it superficially yesterday. But I'll certainly listen to it again. As always, a new Dream Theater album is never unlistenable, but the last couple of albums have been a little bit dull. This album sounded a bit more fresh at least!

Now listening to:
Manuel Schmid & Marek Arnold - "Zeiten"

Very pleasant. Very poppy. But still classy. There's a lot of flute and saxophone and even violins. I was interested in this because of Marek Arnold, who played such a huge part in three of my favourite releases of 2018: Damanek, Southern Empire and Argos.
Lyrics are in German, but I think you, Teunis, won't be bothered by it, since you like Traumhaus. I guess it's safe for you to try it!

Indeed, the German lyrics won't scare me off. Maybe the saxophone, which is far from my favourite instrument ::) ;). But I'll give it a try, thanks!

Dream Theater ~ Distance over Time

Nice, decent, more Rush-like with simpler lyrics…
Not one of their best but enjoyable.
Two songs I could do without though. Room 137 and Viper king.
Horrible.  :o

Last few days I listened a lot to Tim Bowness' new album "Flowers At The Scene". It's not as good as his previous album, but that one was a big surprise for me anyway. Still, there are some pretty nice moments on this new disc!

Now listening to:
Rhys Marsh - "October After All"
Hmm, wow. Good stuff. Never listened to this guy before, but I keep seeing reviews and it certainly has something interesting.
It goes on my discovery list!

[Spotify discovery mode on]

Earlier listened to:
The Black Fall - "Clear Perception"
A Dutch band. Apparently Bruce Soord mixed the album. And there's definitely a Pineapple Thief resemblance. And then Porcupine Tree is never far away. Also fans of Anathema and post-rock bands should check it out.

Just listened to:
Cheeto's Magazine - "Amazingous"
Wow, pretty cool music from Spain! They remind me of A.C.T! Not many bands remind me of A.C.T. So naturally this is for fans of (A.C.T and) Queen, Styx, Dream Theater, etc.

Now listening to:
Fleesh - "Across The Sea"
Beautiful! There's a bit of Stream Of Passion in this Brazilian band. Also Blackmore's Night, Mostly Autumn, Marillion and something else that I can't think of right now. Very nice melodies on this one.

I'm really enjoying these new discoveries!
