I own quite a few of DT's albums - and Train Of Thought is the one I like the most. Dream Theater's style of 'advanced showing-off', as I like to call it, is present in this album but unlike a lot of music that is technically brilliant, this is an album that you can easily relate to and get really into. It's hard to explain, but Train Of Thought is almost hypnotic - you never get bored of it.
If you are new to Dream Theater, this album will well and truly make you a big fan.
And if you're already a fan and don't have this album - for this price you really shouldn't think twice!
I listen to a lot of music of various genres, and I'd say that this is one of my top 3 best albums of all time!
