4 stars Some great stuff on this album and as for the musicianship it is outstanding. My only complaint is that at times the lead guitarist, John Petrucci puts technicality and speed over feeling and noodles through some leads. However this is far less often than not and for the most part he is one of the greatest progrock guitarists you will ever hear, certainly in technical terms. Dream Theatre's compositions on Metropolis 2 take the listener on a musical journey of sorts(it is a concept album) and there is some compelling emotion displayed on this album. Especially at the end with "One Last Time", "The Spirit Carries On", and "Finally Free". The epic "Beyond this Life" is amazing with a great segway into "Through Her Eyes". Metropolis Pt 2 truly is a fine album. It took a few listens for me but only because the music is so comprehensive. This is a great place to start if you are looking to discover Dream Theater. I give it four stars as an excellent addtion to any prog collection and probably one of the first buys if you are interested in hearing Dream Theater.
