4 stars A Change of Seasons are divided into two parts. The title track which is 20+ min epic and the rest of the songs which are cover songs of Kansas, Genesis and Elton John etc. These songs are live. The title track is a studio track.

A Change of Seasons came after Awake and before Falling Into Infinity, but the actual song was written at the same time as Images and Words. The song has been performed many times live on the Images and Words tour and it appears on many bootlegs from that time.

The lyrics are about the journey of life from birth to death. The lyrics are some of the better Dream Theater has crafted in my opinion.

As it is with many epic tracks this one is subdivided into small songs that seque into each other, but it doesn´t feel unnatural, and Dream Theater pulls it of with no problem. It is a great song, and a favorite of mine when talking about Dream Theater. The Rest of the songs are ok, and nothing more really, but they inspired me to buy Leftoverture by Kansas and for that I thank them.

The title track is why you should buy this album and it deserves 5 stars, but as the rest of the songs are rather forgettable in these versions, I can only give 4 stars.

UMUR | 4/5 |
