5 stars Here we go! The best DREAM THEATER album so far, the one which must be in Top-10 of all-time Prog masterpieces, their concept story (very confused in almost David Lynch’s vein ;) ), their most ambitious and successful attempt – not that much successful in a popular sense of the word, but in a Prog sense! Every song is filled with wonderful melodies and interesting hooks, level of performing is better than ever, LaBrie is at his finest (later he’ll lose his strength a bit…) and the whole band is awesomely astonishing. From radiohits like “Through her Eyes” to insane rumbling of “The Dance of Eternity”, DT’s most complex instrumental up to date, music reaches heart of every listener…I simply can’t understand how one would not love this album!!!

Best tracks: “Home”, “The Dance of Eternity”, “ The Spirit carries On”

Best moments: 77 minutes of them!
