I say they should continue with what they did with The Astonishing and freak people out when it comes to the direction of the album.  I'm not saying create another two-hour+ opera-like album, but do things that people don't expect you to pull off and be bold and creative and have a certain element of unpredictability, and still be able to write great memorable songs in the process.

Back to their roots/back to basics -- could mean going back further then you guys think, such as "Another Won" or "Your Majesty."   Five minute songs, tightly packed, progressive, unyielding, unexpected.

But in all honesty, I really would like to hear how today's Dream Theater would approach writing a song like "Another Won" with its current lineup.
