5 stars The first DT album to feature James LaBrie and in my opinion still their best (haven't heard Octavarium yet). Although Petrucci and Portnoy's playing is superb, it is the influence of keyboardist Kevin Moore that really elevates this disc. He alone is responsible for the symphonic feel of the songs. Although their later style is Prog Metal I would suggest that this album is more Progressive rock.

There is some great keyboard/guitar interplay on several tracks. The doom laden Metropolis and the thoughtful Learning to Live are my personal favourites but there are no weak tracks.

One of the landmark prog albums of the 90s and definitely worth 5 stars.
