3 stars Hey man, how much for this cd?... What, 8 dollars?! Ka-chink, thank you very much, please come again. Wow, unexpensive and juicy record. I'm not a fan of prog metal but since a good song is always a good song, A Change of Season is a Dream Theater classic track. The first 2 minutes are absolutely gorgeous, classical guitar by Petrucci. The song progresses to many good peaks.

One thing: they have a great (japanese?) bass player but too bad he sounds muffled. I don't know what type of sound they are looking for (throughout every album thought) with a bass that choked. Dream Theater, as always, are 5 guys who can't stand each other in life (Myung told us) but creates average-good metal prog. The influence of Rush and Genesis are obvious on the first albums 'till this one. Many 'Tony Banks' keyboards stuff is recognizable on the record. If you're a big fan, you'll probably appreciate the covers. Some are fun like the one of Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin.

I know proggers who only swears by them. Not good. You miss a lot of great metal prog from elsewhere (try Ayreon). They are great musicians but they are not flawless nor invincible. You get fed up easily (shorts-too-tight-voice, huge double-pedal drum, hit-hat frenzyness).

Supremacy in technics.
