5 stars Metropolis Part 2: Scenes From A Memory was the first Dream Theater album that really made me gasp!

Although I would soon find out that there was much more from where it came from, I still consider this album and especially the performance on Scene Six: Home to be their crown achievement. It would be completely unjustified to go into an early retirement after delivering such a gem of a composition but unlike many other bands Dream Theater managed once again to outdo themselves with the release of the next couple of albums

When listening to the album I tend to skip the intro track Scene One: Regression which, although sets the mood for the album, isn't really as great of an intro as the instrumental intro of Scene Two: Part I. Overture 1928. The only criticism I can think of is the albums length, but that can be applied to most of Dream Theater's albums, especially the newer releases. I think that a CD, no matter how great, should not be longer than 60 minutes (not counting bonus tracks and such), but that's just my general opinion of the album format as such and not so much criticism for this particular release.

After this short rant I honestly have no more criticism to add and so you should just assume that everything else about Metropolis Part 2: Scenes From A Memory is completely flawless!
