3 stars For those who are seeing the "true "story from DT, this is the right start. I bought this record in 1994, actually a few weeks earlier than AWAKE, and i couldn't belive how strong this first effort was, so many has seen this as the "lost first labum" but to me is the right foundation for a great band that has changed the music business over the years. Well, first, we must understand that the guys (except DOMINICI) were young lads at all!!!, and the true sense of the songs is the exposure of their some what avarege skills in composing and playing, the greatest example of all: YTSE JAM. Now, the rest of the pack is quite good, like a diamond in the rough; to me the greatest moment apart from the famed instrumental is the last part of the record, the more complex, mellow, distant and sentimental of the record; AFTERLIFE, and ONLY A MATTER OF TIME, really shows the effort of the band, the true feeling of years to come. Perhaps the band should be accepting that Moore's influence is bigger than they thought and "forget" the pop voice of Dominici. Enjoy, this is a classic that survived from the 80's and made it to the 90's
