5 stars Imho, DT is defined by their two masterpieces, IMAGES & WORDS, and SCENES FROM A MEMORY. The first one was a collection of riffs that somehow magically congealed (a miracle considering the drama they went through recording it) into brilliant songs (disregarding the Kenny G-like ANOTHER DAY). The second one is DT's coming of age, the culmination of a fantastic band at its best on both technical and inspirational levels. From start to finish, it grips you. There are no weak points, each song combines great songwriting, technical show-off (which I appreciate when done right) and emotion (some of you may find this hard to believe). The story line adds to the depth of the experience of it all. Highlights are everything between 0:00 and 77:12, no need to review each song seperately. In prog-metal land, it doesn't get better than this, a stellar performance by a brilliant band!
Arrakis | 5/5 |
