4 stars Dream Theater is a band that needs no introduction; nearly every fan of prog, and even those who are unfamiliar with the genre, knows of the band. They have impressed numerous audiences with their masterful musicianship and have managed to stay intact for the last 25 or so years.

Indeed, this is their breakthrough album, and quite possibly their best album as well. Several songs on this, such as Pull Me Under and Metropolis Pt. 1, have become very popular, and even reached mainstream exposure. The tunes are very distinct from one another, and the album has great transitions.

Objectively speaking, this album is very creative and features an amazing performance from each band member. However, I cannot listen to more than 2 or 3 tracks at a time without becoming bored. This album still, though, deserves praise for the excellent musicianship, and is great for what it is, albeit not my style.

Highlights: Pull Me Under, Take The Time, Learning to Live

Mystery | 4/5 |
