5 stars I think this is the best work from Dream Theater and by far the one I here the most. I feel like these formidable musicians here are centered on writing and performing songs, not only on show their extremely magnificient habilities. But let me say that all the band is here in top form, including the first appearance of Jordan Rudess on the keyboards.

The concept of the album is quite appropiate for the music, as the story has lost of comings and goings, and so does the music. The album flows perfectly well from beginning to end, even LaBrie, which is not my preferred singer, does a great work and even moves me in the more touching scenes.

My highligths in the album are the overture plus Strange Deja Vu, my favourite DT track, Home with its oriental flavour and great Petrucci riffing and The Spirit Carries On. This song has something really uplifting and is for me the example that when DT are inspired they can write and perform blissful music.

This is a truly classic album of modern prog!
