Dream Theater vocalist JAMES LABRIE talked with Electricbasement.com about the band maintaining heaviness while maturing with family considerations, "(laughs) Well, family and music are separate entities. But you can enjoy both. You have to realize where we’ve gone with our career and our albums. No one album can say where the next will go. We’ve always liked unpredictable risk-taking and always had the freedom to go where we wanted to go. And our fans have come to expect the unexpected.

"That allows us to create what we want to create. With Train of Thought, you’re talking about five guys who, over the years, have been listening to various heavy bands. Whether Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Metallica, Megadeth or Slayer - and Meshuggah being a more contemporary example. And Pantera. I love those guys."
