Of course I agree. I tried so many times, and I think it will just not get through me... I think The Astonishing is the album that I gave the most amount of chances from all albums that I've heard in my life... and nothing happened... :(

The Gift of Music is a great song all the way through, I get goosebumps at the "My brother, Gabriel..." part. I hate it when the early release single ends up to be by far the best song on the album. Usually, it's among the weakest.

The Savior in the Square has that superb drum fill 3 minutes in, underlined by that beautiful vocal melody. A New Beginning is also pretty good, uplifting, but I get bored by the guitar solo at the end. That's about it, I don't like any of the rest.
Sycsa is perhaps the most brilliant and insightful man I have ever encountered.

Man, that guitar solo at the end of A New Beginning is one of the best solos ever. Seeing DT for the first time on the Astonishing tour, the crowd must've given JP a standing ovation 3 or 4 times throughout that solo, and I was in second row right in front of him. One of the best concert moments ever, you could see in JP's face how much fun he was having playing it for the crowd. When I first heard it (especially about 6:15 in, I think it is, when the really fast, catchy tapping part starts), it gave me goosebumps the same way In The Name of God's solo did when I first heard that.

Yeah, I know that it's revered by many, I've even heard people say that it's the best part of the album. It does nothing for me, just sounds like random noodling with no structure (same with the INOG solo by the way). I can imagine it working great in a live setting though. I prefer the more melodic solos, the one in Breaking All Illusions or Finally Free can make me tear up.

Especially the Breaking the Fourth Wall version, where he puts in a little "Free Bird" at 8:40. Speechless. I have no speech. :hefdaddy
