5 stars What better title could there be for an album by a band called 'Dream Theater' than 'Images And Words'?

This album is a true classic of the progressive metal genre and in my opinion the very best of the whole genre. The opening song, Pull Me Under, is the one I like least, it has an alternative feel to it and it also ends rather abruptly for no good reason it seems. But it is still great! The closer, Learning To Live, is a true masterpiece of progressive rock. And all the songs in between are fantastic too!

The influences on the music include among many others a Jazz-Rock/Fusion influence which creates a truly unique sound together with the 70's and 80's metal and Symphonic Prog influences. This is one reason that this album is so groundbreaking.

In my opinion Dream Theater would sink like a stone after this album and never again create anything even remotely close to the brilliance found on this album. This album has all their best songs.

Essential for anyone with even the slightest interest in Prog Metal. This is the place to start!

Very highly recommended!
