2 stars As you can expect when any band releases an album made up of demos, these are songs recorded prior to the big studio recordings, lacking the perfect production or finesse that a band like Dream Theater are known for, thus making this one strictly for the diehard fans.

Most of the songs are the same as they appear on the 'Awake' album, with the only noticeable changes being slight differences to some arrangements, lyrics, guitar riffs or keyboard solos.

If you like 'Awake' then it's a nice look at how the songs were originally arranged, and as usual with DT, the musicianship is fantastic. However, because this is nothing more than a demo album, this is best kept for the Dream Theater collectors who need to own everything.

Valarius | 2/5 |
