The Truth
5 stars Very much to me Dream Theaters best album. Each song is a total masterpiece, starting with the head- banging Root of All Evil which starts off with a Metallica driven riff but still has elements of prog rock in it. The Answer Lies within doesn't seem to fit in with the rest of the album but it has to be there or it's just not the same. It is kind of like Beth on the Kiss album, Destroyer. These Walls is the heaviest track on the album showing the almost death metal sound Dream Theater has. I Walk Beside You is a nice song, almost like a rock ballad but just a little too heavy. Never Enough is the only song I don't like but it isn't enough to keep it from being a masterpiece. Sacrificed Sons is an amazing song probably more prog than others because of the way it's arranged and the epic track Octavarium is one of the best Dream Theater has ever released changing from soft prog to heavy metal very quickly. I call it a masterpiece alright!
The Truth | 5/5 |
