wtf?

There's a massive difference between adding layers and gradually adding layers. What I meant there was they added in the main instruments one at a time. By layering I mean things like strings and an orchestra or whatever.

Extremely lazy. I'm the biggest procrastinator I think ever.

But on a serious note, you're susposed to be a critic right?

Arent there limitations to how long reviews should be?... I mean Jesus Christ, thats the longest review i have ever seen in my entire life, it would take a very powerful attention span to actualy read the whole thing.

In short, im too lazy to read it, but you obviously put a good deal of effort into it, so i'll say you did a good job.

It wasn't a professional review. My real ones are completely different in structure and are only very short and basically just gives the general listener and idea if he or she would like it, etc. I only made that one huge because I had a score to settle with Awake fan boys. To be honest the real reason I haven't shown you my real reviews is because I don't like giving out my name on the net. But thanks for the half-compliment.

I'm just going to say you made quite a fool of yourself in the eyes of the Dream Theater.net forums. :P And as soon as I make 15 posts, I'm going to post a link to it.

I especially enjoyed appollyon's post on the second page. Read it.

Well, yeah, someone on the DT forums posted the link to this review, and, well, let's just say we went to town with this one. :P

And to Don: yes, there is a difference between gradually adding and adding. However, you can only do it one of two ways: many at once, or one or two at a time. Also, I can tell you love I&W very much from what I read of the review. What do you think Pull Me Under does in the opening? It gradually adds layers. As does Under a Glass Moon. You're a very picky listener, you know that?
