5 stars Now, this is what I call a must-have and an absolute masterpiece. I started DT with this this one, and I must say it was a real surprise as I wasn't expecting such an astounding piece of work. With the exception of Through my words and through her eyes every song deserves a five stars rating, with Overture 1928 and The dance of eternity being my favorite ones.

What's more, I didn't find it difficult at all even though I was totally illiterate in prog at that time : I find Images and words much harder to understand, but it may be because the production on Metropolis Part 2 makes it sound so perfect.

You must try it, the best is to listen to the lyrics and see the strong link they have with the music. Let's talk about the music : Well it's metal, but it hasn't got many links with bands such as Metallica or Iron Maiden. Dream Theater shows a great blend of metal, progressive and theatrical music with great moments of tragedy (see the end of finally free, great ending).

I don't see many flaws inside of it, the story told within the lyrics is complete and each song is a step in the discovery of the awful crime it's all about.
