I thought The Astonishing would really be SUPREMELY embarrassing going in based on the song titles and what I read about the concept, but purely on an individual song basis I didn't quite hate it. It was just really really tedious to sit through over two hours of it and I wouldn't go out of my way to hear it all again. I remember very little of it now either.
I do think Jordan Rudess was a good thing in the short term energizing the band for Scenes From A Memory and worked with that album's overall approach, since DT were probably at their best as far as making their instrumental jams captivating at the time, but in the long term I definitely agree he proved himself to be a big waste of talent.
