Judging by the teaser video linked in that article, it sounds to me like there is going to be even more instrumental wankery than a Dream Theater album.
Isn't instrumental wankery more or less the primary reason any of these dudes have careers at all? Their raison d'etre, as it were?
Yes and no. Dream Theater can be wanky, but they also were able to hone in on songs when they needed to. And Billy's worked with enough non-wanky bands at this point. The two of them know how to tone it down when it's called for.
