4 stars 4.5/5 actually !

The first DT album I bought and the second I heard. (The first being their debut album which wasn't all that good if I recall correctly.) I donšt really have much to say about this album. The Musicianship is tight and professional, the playing doesn't get that self indulgentic here as it does on some DT albums and on their live performances. All of the songs are above good, but then again none of them is orgastic enough to make me give this album the full five stars. My favourites must be the two softer ones, "Another Day" and "Wait for Sleep" along with the album closer "Learning to Live". I like their earlier albums more than the latter ones, mainly because of the abscence of Kevin Moore. His playing is much more warmer and inspired to my ears, compared to Jordan Rudess, who playing is a bit, well sterile. If you are into metal you should buy this, if you are into prog, you PROPABLY should buy this and if you are in to prog Metal you already have this.
