Description & Features+

"The Astonishing" is undisputedly the most ambitious undertaking by a band whose cerebral compositions already define the vanguard of progressive hard rock. "The Astonishing" is enriched exponentially by the integration of a real orchestra and choir, arranged by conductor David Campbell, whose work graces over 450 gold and platinum albums, including watershed releases from Adele, Justin Timberlake, Linkin Park, Evanescence, Beyoncé, and his son, Beck. "The Astonishing" was produced by Petrucci with engineering and mixing by Richard Chycki, whose resume includes work with Rush, Aerosmith, and Mick Jagger. Other organic sounds are more abundant than at any point in the band's history, with Rudess in particular relishing the tones from a grand piano and Hammond organ. Like "Tommy" or "The Wall," the songs on "The Astonishing" work as both singular compositions and overall story components. Writing the music as a duo, Petrucci and Rudess venture into unexplored corners of their sound without sacrificing their musical identity.

Ratings & Reviews+

Dream Theater - The Astonishing (2CD) is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not what I expected. I am a long time Dream Theater fan, so I was eagerly awaiting this double concept album. Billed as a Rock Opera, I was expecting something varied. I didn't expect The Astonishing. Since the departure of founding member Mike Portnoy they have been trying to redefine their sound, but in this case, it seems to be too much. Gone is the heavy, hard hitting sound we have become accustomed to, and instead there are lots of slow and soft ballads. I tried to listen to the album from a non Dream Theater point of view. Let me listen to it as a new release from an unfamiliar band. And I can safely say that I didn't care for it. Way too heavy on the keyboards and not enough guitars. The second disc is somewhat harder, but does not make up for the tone of the first disc. As far as the story goes; it's pretty sappy. More of a love story than a story about a musical revolution. 2112 this is not. And I think that the story affects the music. So, to sum it all up. Not my cup of tea. Die hard fans may like it, but i didnt.
