About Court In The Act.

No albums are hosted here. All files must be deleted 24 hours after download, as they are for review and criticism purposes only - provided you follow this guideline, downloading from Court In The Act is legal as per s30(1) of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988. If any copyright holder has a problem with their material being posted here, get in touch and I will remove it. Let me know if any links are broken, I'll remove the post to prevent future annoyance, and will attempt to re-upload the file.

Comments make our work worthwhile. If you really enjoyed an album, tell us about it, we'd love to hear from you. If you hated it, tell us why.

Although music is a major part of all of our lives, we all have some form of external life. If there are periods in which no posts are added, I'm sorry, but that's how things happen. Even though I love blogging like this, sometimes I can't muster up the desire within myself to write about yet another album.

I'd like to say too that Court In The Act will never be run for personal profit. This means no advertisement, no premium schemes, and no LinkBucks. Megaupload is used because it strikes a fair balance between ease of upload and ease of download.

Dream Theater - Octavarium [2005]

This is what I believe to be Dream Theater's 3rd 'essential' album (the other two being "Images & Words" and "Scenes From A Memory", available on this blog).

I say this because "Octavarium" was the band's last good good album (with the previous two being not as interesting and the post two being somewhat stagnated). From the haunting drums at the start of "The Root Of All Evil" to the intensity of "Never Enough", this album is simply a whirlwind, start to finish (ignoring the out-of-place ballad "The Answer Lies Within"). But of course, we're here for the title track. The 24-minute, multi-part epic which plays out not only as one big homage to prog rock, but as a homage to the band itself. The theme of cycles is big on this album, so it's appropriate that the album goes out on the same note it came in on. If you liked the other two DT albums posted here (or if you've never heard them - this was my first DT album), give it a download.
