4 stars A very good album from Dream theater, it was its second one, being the most succesfull comercially. I was interested to hear it in generally because I was expecting to hear Metropolis 1. I liked a lot Metropolis 2, however if you are in the same case, I warn you this album has nothing to do with the other one. Images and Words present a more abstract collection of songs, and what you are most likely to find are heavy prog songs with melodic and pop touches. What I liked more of the album is its second half. Beginning from Metropolis It start to show more progressive elements and better rhythms. Thankfully, I stayed to the end, because I was being disappointed not because It wasnt good, but because I was hearing something usual of any heavy symphonic band, and after hearing Metropolis 2, my expectation was higher. In conclusion, I liked the album, mainly the second half, although in general it is very good. very good addition to any prog collection.
