[New Releases] Dream Theater
The album was produced by guitarist John Petrucci and mixed by Andy Wallace, who previously worked with bands like Nirvana, Guns N’ Roses and Slayer.
As a whole, the album is diverse and balanced. “Bridges in the Sky” is closer to metal and “Far from Heaven” is a gentle ballad that features the warm voice of James LaBrie mixed with the piano of keyboardist Jordan Rudess.
While its previous album “Black Clouds & Silver Linings” (2009) had a darker, heavier sound, this album will remind fans of the band’s early days and albums such as “Images & Words” (1991). The new album is also more melodic and features some especially strong playing from Korean-American bassist (and founding band member) John Myung.
