3 stars The title song "Change of season" is the most pleasing Dream theater composition I have yet heard, though I admit I have not immersed myself deeply to their discography. This long song skims pleasantly through energetic instrumental passages and shows great talent on compositional decisions, instrumental virtuosity and thoughtfulness with arrangements. Many classic progressive rock groups I have listened more have often managed to gain fame with much poorer long compositions. The Live performances also present nicely the idols of the players, but also reveal some elements which have caused this group not to grow as my own personal favorite. But I'm certain there is place for this kind of commercial heavy rock with artistic flavors. Maybe lesser pressures of making money would have allowed them to venture more personal directions, but it is also possible I just can't see the honesty they have practiced on their career.
