3 stars Falling Into Infinity is the lowest rated Dream Theatre album here. I think it's pretty good though. The main problem might be that it is not very consistent. Also the vocals are a lot less gripping then they were on the previous album.

New Millenium and Peruvian Skies are really good. I like the more relaxed and mature playing here. It is completely skimmed of the earlier excesses. However, on Burning My Soul and Hell's Kitchen, the more restrained approach doesn't pay off. Those are rather pedestrian hard rock tunes, not too exciting. Oh and the two songs I just skipped I never play at all.

Lines in the Sand has some potential; with some good Rush-alike Roll The Bones interplay. I think that this might really come alive on stage, but it's too tame here. The album closer Trail of Tears suffers the same fate as Lines in the Sand. It's way too lifeless and uninvolved to hold my interest. 2.5 stars.
