Consequence of Sound

You’ll hear some of that energy captured here, which when coupled with their chemistry and experience, makes for a strong connection between members that is easy to hear in these songs.

AllMusic

Dream Theater reaffirm their identity on Distance Over Time, displaying a collective hunger, abundant energy, creativity, and musical (re)discovery. This set should erase the schism between fans and win the band a whole slew of new ones.

Exclaim!

Dream Theater are by no means breaking any new ground on Distance Over Time. The album pulls from the same bag of tricks as the rest of their discography. What Distance Over Time does offer, however, is that "it" factor you can't quite put your finger on.

PopMatters

Dream Theater's Distance Over Time is at its strongest when it feels improvised and energetic—not overly-planned, but rather like the gang holed up in a studio and decided to lay down some tracks.

This is a good solid listen but i think i found my main problem with Dream Theather,some of their songs are 4-5 minutes long but they feel like are 10-15 minutes long and sometimes they are very boring to listen to but they have very EPIC guitar rits.

The guitar and percussion work is impressive at times, but I feel like I have heard every single song before. I wouldn't be surprised to hear this on my local Rock station played between Disturbed and Chevelle. I didn't completely hate this, but I would be totally fine never, ever hearing this again.

Better than expected. It's more of the same when it comes to Dream Theater, but "Distance Over Time" does it well. It's hella long, but FUUUCK those riffs are awesome!!! Wouldn’t say the same for the lyrics, though.
