epic double concept album from one of the most prolific and iconic progressive rock bands there is - consisting of 34 tracks spread across 2 Acts (approximately 2 hours 10 mins of music), woven around an absorbing story written by guitarist John Petrucci.

'The Astonishing' paints a tale of a retro-futurist post-apocalyptic dystopia ruled by medieval style feudalism. It’s a place aching for a Chosen One to rise above the noise and defeat an Empire defined by the endless drone of noise machines and the illusion of safety in bland conformity. And the album sounds exactly as you'd expect it to from that description - big, bombastic, and brilliant.
