Dream Theater is a progressive metal band, and their latest album The Astonishing just came out. It tells the story of a future without entertainment and a savior in the form of a musician inspires hope in the oppressed people. Does that sound crazy? It should, it wouldn’t be prog rock without some incredibly strange and convoluted plot and also I haven’t gotten a chance to listen to the whole thing yet. Its got 34 songs on it and is over 2 hours of music. That’s crazy. What I’ve made it through so far has been pretty enjoyable, and the whole thing is currently on Spotify if you wanna check it out for yourself. I sure will be for the rest of the week. But here is the third track “The Gift of Music” to get you started.
