4 stars "A Change of Seasons" is a very interesting EP of Dream Theater, because it presents us with one of the best songs the band ever (the title track) and a well diversified selection of covers ranging from Elton John to Genesis, from by Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Journey, among others.

In fact, this is an EP in name only, because it was longer than "When Dream and Day Unite" and "Images and Words" . It is also the debut of the band Derek Sherinian and I can say he does a great job, owing nothing to Kevin Moore and Jordan Rudess.

The track - title opens the album, and has always been one of my favorite DT. It is by far the best epic that they have done before. It is not easy to describe it piece by piece, but it is interesting as there are references to the movie "Dead Poets Society" (which is a good movie) - they will become synchronized as "The Dark Side of the Moon" and "The Wizard of Oz " ? It would be interesting, but I think this is not the case.

The rest of the album consists of an eclectic array (pleonasm...) of covers played live at a jazz club in London. The first is the semi-epic "Funeral for a Friend / Love Lies Bleeding" by Elton John. Then there's "Perfect Strangers" Deep Purple, the medley "The Rover / Achilles Last Stand / The Song Remains The Same", all of Led Zeppelin, and finally the eclectic medley consisting of "In the Flesh" (Pink Floyd) "Carry on Wayward Son" (Kansas), "Bohemian Rhapsody" (Queen), "Lovin ', Touchin', Squeezin '(Journey)," Cruise Control "(Dixie Dregs) and " Turn It On Again "(Genesis) . all are good, but certainly not reach the quality of the original versions or the first song.

4 stars
