3 stars Another Day, Another Single to be reviewed...

Another Day is a melodic song taken from the 1992 album 'Images and Words'. Despite the track's blatant commercial feel and the recording of a music video to accompany this song, this single never recieved much success; certainly not as much as Pull Me Under anyway. The lyrics, written by John Petrucci, concern his father who was suffering with cancer at the time. Probably the most distinctive thing about this song, apart from it's ballad-like sound, is the cheesy soprano sax which pops up intermittently throughout, courtesy of Jay Beckenstein. Beckenstein would appear with Dream Theater later in their career. This is a lovely song, and a good choice for a single.

The two extra tracks on the single are live versions of A Fortune In Lies from the band's first album and Another Day. Both tracks were recorded at The Marquee Club in London on 23/04/93, and A Fortune In Lies appears on 'Live At The Marquee'. There are no real surprises in either of these tracks, but it's fun to hear Dream Theater live in their infancy.

This is a pretty bog standard single if you ask me. The B-sides aren't particularly rare, as both can be found on versions of 'Live At The Marquee'. If you like the melodic and thoughtful side of Dream Theater, you'll probably like this single.
