Review: Dream Theater’s The Astonishing Will Astonish the Band’s Fans and Non-Fans Alike


Dream Theater - The AstonishingMetalSucks contributor Crash Thompson returns with another episode of his video review series “Critical Condition.” On this episode, Mr. Thompson tackles The Astonishing, the epic, double-disc rock opera by Dream Theater.

Crash concedes that he’s never been much of a Dream Theater fan, but finds a whole lot to love about The Astonishing anyway. Watch the video below for his thoughts on the long-running prog metal band’s most ambitious release to date.

The Astonishing comes out on January 29th via Roadrunner Records. Listen to “The Gift of Music” and “Moment of Betrayal,” pre-order here, and get tour dates here: Europe / North America.
