2 stars Dream Theater - A Change of Seasons

A Change of Seasons is in fact a small EP featuring one studio song and a whole lot of live cover songs. Only buy this one if you can get hold of it very cheap.

The album comprises one massive epic track lasting an average twenty-four minutes and this is Dream Theater at their best. A Change of Seasons consists of seven sections all good running together. There is a nice variety of soundscapes; parts are very ambient and atmospheric, like for instance the opening- and ending sequence. Others are fairly heavy and feature nice metal guitar riffs.

Unfortunately, the other half of this EP is nowhere as good as the opening song. The live covers are nice to listen to the first few listens, but after a while you tend to put this disc on a shelf and never listen to it again. at least so it has happened to me.

I just wished they had included this song as an extra to their 1994 "Awake" album. It would fit in great.
