5 stars Really the album that marked the DT.Altough I like the different albums that the band would later release, I think "Images and Words" was the album that really made me fall in love with DT, along with "Metropolis". The opening track "Pull me under", is one of the most classic tracks of the band, and one of my favorites.Her starts with some heavy riffs before the vocals come Petrucci. "Another Day" is a simple ballad, but with a beauty unsurpassed. The heavy sound left by previous track disappears totally . "Take the Time" begins in an odd way, with Moore's keyboards dominating everything, but music evolves, and the much-very over its 8 minutes.The their next track, "Surrounded "is a bit more commercial but still very boa.Os Labrie's vocals are really very good, even if they do not give the highs of" Another Day. And then we have one that is in my humble opinion , the masterpiece, the magnum-opus, the band's quintessential track: her, "Metropolis pt.1-The Miracle and the Sleeeper".This track meet in 9 minutes everything a lover of prog metal search.Absolutely heavy! everything works well in music.The five members are more cohesive as ever, and it ends on a amazing. "Under a glass moon" is another of my favorite tracks of the DT, the guitar solo of Petrucci is amazing. "Wait for Sleep "is a short song that serves as the rest of the tracks, and which prepares the ground alongside the last song," Learning to Live "and other classic among fans (at least in my case). Labrie's vocals reach their peak here ( he could never sing that note again) and the instrumental jam in the middle of the song is perfect, one of the best DT ever created.
