1 stars Images and Words has been very influential for forming of the new wave progressive metal rock. It is a very complex work of art, played with much craft by gifted musicians. However, for me it doesn't work at all. It' s too smooth, too technical. There are no surprises and no really heavy or really beautiful moments. All is a kind of averaged, no high, no low points. How diffetent that is with Pain of Salvation or Opeth! To me, Dream Theater work, including this record, have cost much time to understand. and after that, I didn't start enjoyong it. I just realized that I wasted my time on them. Overrated.
