5 stars This is the pinnacle of Dream Theater, where they truly peaked. Previous albums all seemed to build up to this one and the albums that followed lack the inspiration and level of execution displayed here. 'Metropolis: Part 1' was the jewel of the band previously so it is only fitting that its sequel would be their masterpiece.

Compositionally, this is the only DT album where everything seems to really fit and create a cohesive album as a whole. Part of that has to do with the fact that the album is one story written scene by scene, but tearing it apart track by track and looking at each band members contribution there is remarkable balance. This is the most refined DT work while still incorporating their originality and creative spark.

I honestly can't name the 'best track' because there are at least three from which I could not ask anymore. 'Fatal Tragedy', 'Home', and the instrumental 'The Dance of Eternity' demonstrate the, instrumentation, dynamism and song writing that make DT great.

Gyges | 5/5 |
