I haven’t bought a DT album since Train of Thought.
This sounds like a cross between Awake and Train of Thought.
I may end up getting this one.
Killer song.
Drummer kills it.

Riffs definitely remind ToT, their best album after metropolis II in my opinion.
Mangini is unbelievable! I can't wait to see him playing live.
And Petrucci's shred in the end, wow!
I don't think the keyboard sections towards the end were necessary for the heaviness of this song. Just my opinion. Still great song I think!

Well done Mangini!!

This song really does sound like a re-energized DT!! Excellent.
Love the guitar and bass tones, great syncopation. I liked the keyboards at about 1:11 mark. I thought I also heard a hint of BTBAM in the opening sections. The vocals are about the only thing that doesn't stand out as exceptional - though still good. The keyboard section @ 4:43 is distinctly DT, but I'd agree that Jordan could have chosen a different sound pallette to make his awesome solo blend a bit better.

Having been on an Epica/Mayan kick for well over a few months now, this sounds somewhat similar (in the layering of the instruments and atmosphere). Maybe this will do the trick to pull me away (under) from Simone, Floor, Henning and Mr. Jansen for a little bit.
