Did you see the web broadcast of the drummer auditions? Mangini's was the first up and he was amazing.  From a technical standpoint, I think DT chose the right drummer. Now, the question remains about the quality of the new material and the integration of that with Portnoy's material in a live setting.

Overall, I think DT does well when there is a balance between speed/thrash and the melodic pieces. The "palet cleanser" between dinner courses. Too much of either and this band becomes like too many other groups out there.
