I love the album title. I just hope the album artwork isn't cheesy. And if it is, I hope it's cheesy in an awesome way.
"On the Backs of Angels" is a beautiful title and I see what James probably meant by "oozing with emotion"
"Build Me Up, Break Me Down" just sounds exciting as all hell of a song, and I bet it will be anthemic.
"Lost Not Forgotten" will almost definitely be the single based on the title and track placement; sounds really tense and epic
"This is the Life" sounds really optimistic and light; I think this song will be a cult classic, perhaps the next Myung?
"The Shaman's Trance" is a silly name and I hate it; I hope it is the instrumental because I don't want LaBrie singing about that subject.
"Outcry" sounds like it will be tremendous and intense.
"Far From Heaven"... ambiguous. Could be giant, could be a ballad, will probably have LaBrie sounding incredibly.
"Breaking All Illusions"...and
"Beneath the Surface"...these last two songs, both give me the feeling that they'll be so big, maybe the best penultimate and ending tracks Dream Theater has ever penned. I feel like one of them (or both?) is Myung. Just...
