* AwesomeMusic: It '''is''' a Music/DreamTheater album after all! In particular, "A New Beginning", near the end of the first act, is often cited as a highlight.

* SnarkBait: The album is this for vocal DT fans who are completely disappointed with the album, to the point where the album's plot is mocked.

Added DiffLines:

* CriticalDissonance: The ''biggest'' within the band's catalog. Critics happily praised it and garnered it for it's music elements and story line...but a huge amount of fans were incredibly disappointed due to the lack of usage of the ARG the band set up, the lack of EpicRocking and of course, the ''heavy'' AuthorTract, even for Dream Theater standards.


* BaseBreaker: The lack of EpicRocking and the focus on [[PowerBallad ballads]] is this for some fans, even more so the fact that it's ''2 hours of music''.

* {{Narm}}: Gabriel's blood-curling scream at the end of "My Last Farewell" comes off as this, as it doesn't sound as impressive as it's built up to be. Even worse in that, one song earlier ("The Walking Shadow"), LaBrie pulls off really well [[spoiler:Xander screaming at Daryus]].

* ToughActToFollow: It has some great material and on it's own, it's very impressive for Dream Theater to tackle another concept album, but many fans feel it can't top [[Music/MetropolisPt2ScenesFromAMemory Metropolis Part 2]].

** The NOMACS in general. Giant floating spheres creating machine like music, staring at you for all eternity...
