2 stars Dream Theater are great fans of the music I used to listen to in my youth. I really appreciate it. This "Stargazer" is one of the brightest examples of the period of time the prog-metal was in its early state, the Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow were the true precursors of this kind of music and "Rising", the album from where this "Stargazer" is extracted, was one of the first, true and well played "prog-metal" album I ever listened to. Unfortunately the lack of feeling of DT components, their will to speed up the songs, the poor singing of Labrie with the respect to Dio one (but we have to notice that Dio was pretty younger than Labrie at that time), the useless speed of the "solo" guitar with the respect to Blackmore's feeling, impoverish this beautiful old song and leaves me a little disappointed.

Two stars, because I loved and admired DT in the past.
