The Astonishing is Dream Theater’s second concept album after 1999’s Metropolis Pt 2: Scenes from a Memory. Described as an honest-to-God rock opera by Rolling Stone, it has been compared to The Who’s Tommy (1969), Rush’s 2112 (1976), Pink Floyd’s The Wall (1979), and Queensrÿche’s Operation: Mindcrime (1988). 2112 also revolves around music being used to achieve freedom in a futuristic setting.
The Astonishing is the thirteenth studio album by American progressive metal band Dream Theater, released on January 29, 2016 through Roadrunner Records. It is the band's second concept album, with a story conceived by guitarist John Petrucci and music written by Petrucci and keyboardist Jordan Rudess.
A two-hour concept album about creative musicians battling institutional enforcement of electronic cacophony in the year 2285, The Astonishing tones down Dream Theater’s super-musicianly dexterity somewhat in service of its plot. Emphasis goes to piano parts, jazz touches, classical choirs, and orchestral arias such as the one in Act of Faythe. But amid all the multicharacter rock opera, riff-shredders like Our New World still connect on their own, while When Your Time Has Come works as a miniature version of the whole project. The Astonishing Dream Theater.
The Astonishing is a rock opera double album released on January 29, 2016 by progressive metal band Dream Theater. It is their 13th studio album, their second rock opera after Scenes from a Memory, and the third studio album they made with their new drummer Mike Mangini, who replaced longtime drummer Mike Portnoy back in 2010. John Petrucci describes the album here: The Astonishing is a concept album written around a story. Pink Floyd’s The Wall was definitely an inspiration. The story and concept revolves around the Ravenskill Rebel Militia trying to defy the oppressive Great Northern Empire. The Astonishing is also DT’s first album to top the US Billboard Rock chart, as well as the one that hit the top ten in many countries. The Astonishing Q&A.
With the abundance of new albums that are released these days, it is hard to get too enthusiastic over one release. It is uncommon to achieve the kind of anticipation that there used to be when a new cd was due to come out and few artists are able to generate such excitement. Within the Prog genre, Dream Theater are one of those bands, and with their upcoming new album, they have certainly set the Prog world on its collective ears

Progressive metal band Dream Theater do this justice by harking back to some of the key themes from the iconic album to make ‘The Astonishing’ as truly great as it is, including various orchestral elements. What they have made, however, is something truly unique. Unfortunately, however, not all is perfect on this album. Just because the band can play something doesn’t mean that they should, and this is definitely the case on this track. To say ‘The Astonishing’ bombastic is an understatement. To listen to this album, the realisation must be made that this is more of a story than an album; treat it as a film score, and read the story they have written to accompany this album. This might sound a pompous description, but to expect anything else from prog would be to simply not understand the point of it at all.
