Listen: Dream Theater Premiere New Song, "Along for the Ride"



+ Add a Comment


As a long time fan I am disappointed by what I am hearing in the recording quality of Mike Mangini's drumming. Such an awesome drummer sounding "tinny" and compressed. Also Jordan's keyboard parts although talented - the sound / mood/ atmosphere is in poor taste. Cheesy. Enemy Inside and Along For the Ride are not doing it for me.

Listen to Haken's new album The Mountain. That is relevant prog rock.



I would be happier if Jordan stopped using weird keyboard tones. Same thing with the first single as well. I don't understand why he loves "cartoon"ish sounds and tones. This is a hard-rock/metal band after all. What happened to the good old piano tone?



The sound is very rich. Love the way the melody is driven by both voice and guitar. Keyboard solo is pretty awesome as well, reminds me A LOT to "Beneath the Surface". Can't wait to hear the whole album!
