Best Songs On Dream Theater's The Astonishing

The Astonishing is one of 2015s best album and instantly became one of my all-time favorite Dream Theater albums!

Seriously give this Double-CD Rock Opera a listen! It's already one of the best albums of 2016!
These are the best songs on it!

The Top Ten

1 A New Beginning A New Beginning

The outro's guitar solo is kind of ''Gilmourish'' in A Momentary Lapse of Reason. Great song from a great (and underrated) album. - patrickfloyd

Very nice outro song with some of LaBrie's best vocals. Although I'm kinda sad this song isn't 10+ minutes. Like on the last album with Illumination Theory. - IronSabbathPriest

I was pretty disappointed that this album doesn't have any particular epic, but I'd say of the songs from this album, this is one of the best.

Wow, this song perfectly closed off 130 minutes of ProgMetal mastery! Great guitar play and fantastic vocals! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

5 Our New World Our New World
6 Three Days Three Days


7 The Gift of Music The Gift of Music

The first single of the album! And basically it was the first song during the album, that sticked out! It's a great one! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

8 Dystopian Overture Dystopian Overture
9 Hymn of a Thousand Voices Hymn of a Thousand Voices

This song turned the album into a much more hopeful tone! And it was perfect! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

"I never knew they spent their days in rags, while I enjoy the life they'll never have."
I think a lot of people can relate to this song. - IronSabbathPriest
