5 stars Dream Theater: Metropolis Part 2: Scenes From A Memory

I have no idea what this masterpiece of an album has to do with the masterpiece of a song "Metropolis Part 1: The Miracle and the Sleeper" plot wise but, that really doesn't matter. What does matter is that this is the best concept album you will ever hear. The plot is about a man who dreams about a past life in 1928. There is a wonderful mystery and love triangle, you will have to pay attention to they lyrics and maybe even listen to whole thing again to truly understand what happens but, nonetheless you will enjoy each and every listening. If you are a fan of musical complexity this album is for you. If you enjoy great lyrics, this album is for you. If you enjoy music, this album is for you. Though i would not say this album is for those with little attention spans because this is an epic concept album and, if you have a little attention span you would not be able to enjoy this great piece of art in full. Did I mention this album contains some of the best guitar, keyboard and drum solos you will ever hear, as well as great vocals.

Five star songs: Fatal Tragedy, Beyond This Life, Home Four star songs: Overture 1928, Strange Deja Vu, The Dance of Eternity, The Spirit Carries On, Finally Free. Three star songs: Regression, Through My Words, Through Her Eyes, One Last Time
