I'd say Carnegie Hall. It's the only one released last year that I listened to.

Man, I wish I could get into Dream Theater still. I've heard this, and it's all.....so same-ish from what they've already released, if that makes sense. I don't really dislike it though. And there's zero difference between the new drummer and Portnoy.

Really?

I think it's their most diverse and melodic album in years. I also hear a HUGE difference between Mangini and Portnoy...
