Let's dive right into the next batch of favourite tracks of 2011, as voted by AU review contributors!
The eleventh studio album from USA based progressive metal powerhouse band Dream Theater is something to be marvelled. Not only for its title, somewhat of a hint as to the events that occurred in the last 12 months, but for its milestone achievement – the first album with new drummer Mike Mangini. How does it stack up? Dave Roberts track-by-tracks to tell us if it’s really worth the hype.
If you’ve been living under a sound-proof rock that has no internet access, no contact to the outside world and most of all no traces of human existence, you wouldn’t know that Dream Theater have recently finished a new album. And that they have been on tour with their latest member – MIKE MANGINI.
Dave Roberts picked up the phone and had a yack with the new member – talking about life inside and out, of Dream Theater.
