Finally watched Dreams of a Life last night. Soo fucking weird and baffling that shit could happen, but the movie does point to some possibilities of explanation. Definitely would recommend it. I can see why SW was so inspired by it. Very strange.

I literally just finished it. Yeah...it's...it gave me the same feeling as the movie 'Coherence' in that it's terrifying without actually being scary. It gave me such a deep, dark pit in my stomach and it made me want to shit myself without...ever...actually feeling it? It's fucked up in the worst way possible. It's feeling something that shouldn't ever be. It made me question what the ever-living-fuck the people in her life were doing, while still questioning her. It's just so completely and limitlessly unnerving that it eventually transforms into fear because I just didn't know what to feel. Horrifying.

All that said, absolutely BEAUTIFUL and perfect concept for an (concept?) album and it made me anticipate this music SO much more. I think this is gonna be a real treat for the dark, depressive motherfuckers such as myself.

Many years after the fact, I have discovered that Insurgentes is fantastic.

Great, thanks for the info!

I found it on Amazon, just need to find the time to watch it. I read a bit more about it, and was incredibly sad to hear that she was found in her house with wrapped Christmas presents all around her. Just so sad.

New Album has a name.

What a terrible album title though :lol ah well, as long as the music is good. Definitely will catch him live though. His live concerts are awesome.

It's too early to say if I like the title or not, because usually I need artwork and the music combined with the title to see if it fits or not. However, I thought Raven had an overly long title, and the "(and other stories)" at the end should just have been dropped all together. I think I prefer a shorter title over a longer title in this case.

And yeah, he's coming to my city too. Couldn't be more excited.

I agree, the title is kinda terrible. Still instant buy though.

I wasn't expecting him to come to Russia, so I'm not disappointed. Like, not at all. Right.

It is the title he's chosen, so it is the title that will forever be associated with the music contained within. Maybe it will make sense when we hear that music.

I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

I actually looked back in his Twitter log and for Raven he announced the UK/Europe tour in October and the US one in late December, so I imagine we just have to wait a bit longer. I'm guessing it will be May/June, so I may wait to book my June trip to Alaska to see where he's going to be and when. I will not miss this shit!

The first thing the title reminded me of was Index actually. I think I like the title though, it's the "."s that makes it look weird.

I love the title. Seems ominous, mysterious, and a bit offsetting. Good stuff, I can't wait to hear this album!  :heart

Clearly it's a placeholder for now but even with just the background image, I think this is going to be an equally dark album with hints of light, as we heard in the previews. But yes, very informative site. I think that's all they really need!

Totally looking forward to HCE (yes, we're doing the abbreviations already! lol). The follow-up to TRTRTS is going to have a hard time living up to its predecessors, but I have high hopes that it will exceed expectations!
