The mighty, Dream Theater finally finished their next album and they just revealed the title. It will be called “The Astonishing”. It’ll be a double album too, it looks like. It also looks like it’s gonna be a concept album, kind of like the Who kind of thing where the whole album tell a story. The songs on the album looks like are gonna be stories and will have fictional characters.
While there are many tracks on the album, I’m sure most of them will be spoken word stuff telling the story and many of the songs will be just regular songs with James Labrie singing on them. It’s gonna be like a theatrical kind of album kind of like The Who “Tommy”, Pink Floyd “The Wall” and stuff like that.
I can’t wait for the next Dream Theater album as I’m sure it will be pretty epic. They’re one of my favorite bands right now as I’ve been listening to them for a pretty long time. Before the release of Apple Music streaming, I was trying to collect all of Dream Theater’s albums but since Apple Music is here… I got to listen to the rest of their discography. Dream Theater is pretty phenomenal and they’re kind of underrated. They aren’t a mainstream band when they should be.
