Top Notch Prog!
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 18/08/2014 21:04:19
This album is simply the Best in their Catalogue!
Its an almost, if not, perfect album.No flaws or weaknesses, amazing composition and flow, perfect musical execution and amazing production.
For me, perfect from start to finish.
Impossible to dislike if you are into this music style at all.

This is quite simply the greatest rock album EVER, if you have never heard Dream Theater then your ears have never been fully utilised, this is music to listen to not have on in the background, if this were made into a film I would go and see it 10 times, you may be able to tell I LOVE IT.

The Dream Theater concept album
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 26/03/2012 08:41:28
One of the best Dream Theater album. It's a concept, born of an "Images and words" song (that's because of "Part 2"!).
It represents a nice story masterfully played.
I find great the idea that the listener is also one of the leading characters of the story, where he's introduced by a psychotherapist who draws out the memories of what has happened: brilliant!

Buy the DVD

Absolutely stunning. The only sad aspect of this wonderful concept album is you cannot see the stunning musicians playing. Buy this CD and the accompanying DVD.

From an Avenged Sevenfold fan perspective
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 03/04/2010 00:29:44
I had never heard of this band before I'll be honest and ashamed. After the drummer from Avenged Sevenfold had died, the news was Mike Portnoy was going to take to the drums to create the next Avenged album. So I was intrigued to find out who he was which led me to this amazing band. Just fantastic, this was the first album I bought of Dream Theater and I plan to buy many more. 5 stars !

Dream Theater's Finest Hour
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 08/08/2009 02:06:19
Well it's there finest 77 minutes to be exact.
This album defines the band and modern prog rock/metal in general. It is my favourite album of all time and although i have listened to the tracks such as fatal tragedy, the dance of eternity and Home countless times the instrumentation always leaves me astonished.
All the songs are great but you cannot fully appreciate this album until you have listened to it in it's entiretiy, the only downside to the album is that afterwards nothing else will compare.

A Masterpiece for £2.99 - BUY BUY BUY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 04/08/2009 13:26:42
Dream Theater produced the masterpiece of their career with this concept album - a brilliant mix of heavy and light with some of the best ballads of their career (the sublime The Spirit Carries On being a highlight)
I could write a whole dissertation on the album but I'm not going to - discover its intricacies for yourself.
Just buy it OK even if you've never heard of Dream Theater - for £2.99 its a steal!!

Five Stars but. . .
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 04/07/2009 11:42:06
I know I am in the minority here. As a concept album it is up there with the greatest in the past 30 years, and on that basis requries 5 stars. It also contains one of DT's most moving tracks - The Spirit Carries On, and has a great opening. However, the "but" is that is is NOT as good as SDOIT, ToT and dare I say it Falling Into Infinity. This is what happens when you produce so much good material I suppose. That said, £4.99 is a steal!

Amazing. Just Amazing.
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 19/06/2009 01:45:03
This is a fantastic album. While the album should be listened to as a whole for the real experience, tracks like Fatal Tragedy (the drums and guitar will never cease to astound you), Through Her Eyes, Home, The Spirit Carries On and Finally Free can be listened to over and over again and never get old. This is definitely one of my favourite albums and certainly worth the money. A very talented band.

This has to be one of the greatest albums of all time, it manages to create an atmosphere unlike anything ive ever heard. An absolutely stunning achievement which is quite rightly regarded by dream theater fans as their masterpiece
