  2. Answering The Call (7:35)
  3. Invisible Monster (6:31)
  4. Sleeping Giant (10:05)
  5. Transcending Time (6:25)

  7. A View From The Top Of The World (20:24)

A View From The Top Of The World was recorded at Dream Theater Headquarters – a combination live recording studio, rehearsal space, control room, equipment storage, and creative hive – during the pandemic, with vocalist James LaBrie completing his vocals in person this past March.

“We just love to play our instruments,” said guitarist John Petrucci. “That never goes away. I love to be creative, write, and exercise that part of my mind. We’ve been able to do this for a long time, and we don’t take it for granted. Whenever we get together, we know we can’t disappoint ourselves or our fans, so we manage to try even harder.”

“We approach every album like it’s our first,” added LaBrie. “It’s been such a great ride, but we’re not going to stop.”

The cover for A View From The Top Of The World was done by Hugh Syme (Rush, Iron Maiden, Stone Sour). A View From The Top Of The World was produced by John Petrucci, with engineering and additional production by James "Jimmy T" Meslin, and was mixed and mastered by Andy Sneap (Judas Priest).
