5 stars This album wil probably go down as the standard for intrumental progressive for decades to come. The precision of this group is astounding, among the greatest I've ever seen. Petrucci and Portnoy blend together really well, and Levin brings some incredibly powerful supportive lower lines. I don't understand all this criticism of Rudess, as he plays some of the most intense and exquisite lines I've ever had the pleasure of enjoying.

As far as the album itself goes, the songs themselves are excellent and they fit together very well. I liked Acid Rain the first time I heard it, and Another Dimension has wonderful highs and lows. The only complaint I can really lodge is the amount of time it takes When the Water Breaks to move along, and it doesn't really go anywhere in the end (though I love that funky little phrase Rudess plays at the end).
