One of the great things about the Internet is that it allows for the dissemination of information at an unprecedented rate. That’s not just a hollow, overly-verbose phrase…it’s the truth. Case in point: I’ve pre-ordered my copy of Dream Theater’s new album (set to release on June 23rd), but I already have my hands on a virtual copy of it. I’ve already given it a first listen, and I have to say I love it. No surprise (of course) but it’s good to know that my first impression is a positive one. I’ll be listening to it over and over and over again until I decide which song will be added to Ytsevolution. I know that “The Shattered Fortress” isn’t going to be on there because it’s already part of the Twelve-Step Suite, so that leaves five more tracks to pick from. I’m positively giddy.
