Dream Theater’s fourteenth studio album “Distance Over Time” is officially released on Friday, February 22, 2019.
The album clocks in under 1 hour, without bonus track “Viper King”.
“Room 137” lyric was written by Mike Mangini , which is a first for Dream Theater.
After the first listen of the album in its entirety, not counting the first three songs (“Untethered Angel”, Paralyzed”, and “Fall into the Light”) which were made available prior to the album release; “At Wit’s End” and “Viper King” stand out.
I need to listen to this album a lot more time to form any further opinion.
One tip I learned from my Guitar Tech Friends and Luthiers: use mineral oil to maintain your guitars. You don’t need to buy the overpriced “special” scented fretboard oils. For about $2.00 you can get mineral oils from your local pharmacy, supermarket and hardware store. You want to use odorless and “food-safe” mineral oil.
For example, Target sells “Mineral Oil USP, Lubricant Laxative” for $1.99.
